Ford Mustang Fans Rock: 97-Year-Old Daily Drives 5.0

Ford Mustang

Most older folks give in to Mother Nature and choose to age gracefully. And that typically means leaving the fun and wild days of their youth behind.

That is not what Swedish-born Lennart Ribring, a Ford Mustang fanatic since day one, had in mind after he turned 97 years young this year. Instead, Lennart decided to buy himself a brand new 5.0 Mustang and laugh in the face of Father Time. Yes!

Lennart’s love affair with the Mustang goes back to its inception. In fact, he was one of the first in Sweden to buy the original pony car back in the ’60s. That passion never went away, and neither did Lennart’s desire to live out his final years by, in his own words, “having a little fun behind the wheel.” I mean, how awesome is this man?
