“My name is Lennart Ribring. I’m 97-years-old. I drive a 5.0-litre V8 Ford Mustang fastback and I’m really happy.”
The Ford Model T was just 11-years old when Lennart was born in Stockholm. Later, in the 1960s, he was one of the first people in Sweden to buy an original Ford Mustang.
“I fell in love with the first Mustangs that came out and I have hardly thought about another car since. You feel a bit like a travelling king.”Now, when many people would be reflecting on the past, he's back in the saddle with a brand new Ford Mustang.
“I don’t have long to live now, maybe. I want to take the opportunities I have to drive a little and have a little fun in life.”
Lennart, a successful businessman who still works part-time as an accountant, also has some wise words for those of us who plan on still being behind the wheel when we are approaching 100.
“Learn about a car properly before you drive it. You must always think about safety.”
