So I guess if you're driving along the interstate in central Illinois and you see a Transformers SS in the fast lane with its blinker on and doing about 35mph wave, odds are it'll be him.

He did look very good for 101. Must be the prune juice. I thought it was funny that in his 101 years hes only had 30 some cars as the reporter said. I am 32 and the 2010 purchase was number 24. I still have numbers 21, 22, 23 and 24! Three Camaros and a Jeep Wrangler.

I hope he enjoys it!
