    -- years old, not mph. My uncle might be the oldest person to get a Tesla Grin!

    We thought about letting him drive a little ways in a deserted parking lot, but since he let his driver's license expire when he turned 98, decided against it.
    He had a great time.

    Cool...

    Had he ever tried the old Baker Electric or Detroit Electric Cars from the earlier part of the 20th Century?

    I took my 90 yr old grandpa for a ride in my P and after a mile or so I floored it at 30 mph and the smile on his face was priceless:biggrin:.
    He said 'boy, that'd never get old! Can you do it again!'. And before that, I wasn't sure he could handle it. He loved it and told my mom he wants one. (No license :wink:)
