101-Year-Old Man Becomes Oldest Camaro Owner

November 3, 2009

When most people retire they take up golfing, but 101-year-old Virgil Coffman is living life in the fast lane. The active centenarian recently became the oldest-known living owner of a new 2010 Chevrolet Camaro.

Despite initial concern from the sales associate, Coffman knew exactly what he wanted when he purchased the 400-plus horsepower, bright yellow, Transformers edition Camaro. Impressed by the overall design, Virgil was ultimately sold on the cars' easy handling and striking looks.

After owning nearly 40 cars in his lifetime, he follows the philosophy that if you want something, get it.

These days Virgil says he can't go anywhere without strangers asking him about his car and he's already planning road trips for next summer.
