Meet The 97-Year-Old Swede Who Drives a New Ford Mustang GT

Since its debut in 1964, the Ford Mustang become one of the most iconic American cars ever sold. When Swedish driver Lennart Ribring first saw it, he fell in love. Ribring purchased a new Mustang back then and says he’s hardly ever thought about another car.

Now, as he approaches the 100-year mark, he decided to get something new. So he went out and purchased a brand new 2016 Mustang GT complete with a manual transmission and a 5.0-liter V8. No EcoBoost Mustang for this man. The 97-year-old says he has no problem driving his cherished steed around, showing it off to his son and granddaughter.

He also happens to be the oldest Mustang driver in the world. To celebrate, Ford of Sweden put together a nice film documenting Ribring’s car history, his new purchase, and his car-filled plans for the future.

We salute you, Lennart. And hopefully, at 97, we’re still driving cool cars, too.
