Default 100 mph at 100 years old

Don't know how to post a link but there is a neat video story on CNN about a man on his 100th birthday drove his son's car at 100 mph,then got in a cat(didn't recognize the brand) and drove it at 100 mph on the water. Very cool video, very cool guy. I envy him. I'm sure someone can post a link.

The Gentlemans grandson ( the boat owner) is a poster on Performanceboats.com. When asked about the day, he basically said

"My Grandpa Rocks!"

I would agree. Very cool story.

Now why can't all old people drive fast like him. I cringe whenever I get behind a slow Buick
