Had to sell my dad's 41 super deluxe a few years ago in his estate auction.  Wanted to keep it in the family but there was bad blood brewing from other siblings if one of us bought it.  ( they would claim we paid too little......)   So, they got to split about two grand less than we would have dished out.........

So where's the story about the death & destruction at her local farmer's market?

fta "My husband tried to teach me how to drive and I got mad at him [during that], so I just went and got my own lessons, and I passed my test," she recalls with a laugh.

Awesome. HBD, cool little lady.

She adds that Wall is in a nursing home only because she is unable to walk. "Her mind is perfect. She's very smart," she says. "She knits, and she's a big Red Sox and Patriots fan."

If she's a Red Sox fan, she can't be that smart.

I'm sure she's compensating for a small peener.

You Boston Haters have to get a life! People have flaws. Live with it.

Ol' lady digs her ride. Yay! Go for it gramma! Wish I could find a mint 1949 Caddy for my 86-yr-old mom to ride in for a while (god knows I couldn't buy it for her!).

Because the old joke about Asian women behind the wheel. Meh, whatever.

Huh. Puts my wife's gift to her mother on her 80th birthday in the shade. She wanted to ride in a convertible. I didn't know anyone who had a classic, and in this part of the country ragtops aren't very easy to come by. Avis at the airport had one, which I reserved for the day, sight unseen. When I went to get it, they presented me with a new Camaro SS.

My MIL got her ride, but then my brothers in law and I took over and had a good old time with that car. :) Amazing nobody got a ticket.

Subby, you don't need the word "it" in the second sentence of the headline.

I saw "Super Deluxe" in the headline, and just kept on going

Wall recalls that she and her husband, who died 21 years ago, sold the car in the 1950s for a couple thousand dollars in order to buy a Volkswagen bus, which they needed for lugging around the carnations and camellia trees they sold for a greenhouse business.

..an' shovels 'n rakes an' implements of destruction.

FTFA: "Wall recalls that she and her husband, who died 21 years ago, sold the car in the 1950s for a couple thousand dollars in order to buy a Volkswagen bus"

That seems a bit high.

A couple hundred is more likely.

Guess we know who she sold it to in 1955...

Too late now, but there's a thing called "right of first refusal" for anybody else in the similar situation. Put it out there on the market, get the best price possible, but a family member has the option to match that price (within a reasonable amount of time).
