Josephine C 1930 Packard Custom Eight-Series 740 2dr Roadster


Last year we went with Margaret Dunning to Indianapolis Speedway for the Indianapolis Concours taking Margaret's 1930 Packard 740 Roadster. As Margaret was the star of the show and it looked like rain we knew Margaret would never drive her car in the rain, so we asked if there was a way we could drive on the track for promotional pictures with Margaret so they told us yes, so I jumped in the Rumble Seat with Dan my husband in passenger seat and 103 year old Margaret driving her Packard, when they opened those gates and she drove onto that track and we realized this was moment not to many people in their lifetime would ever have, I had my camera video taping this moment as I was screaming "We are driving on the Indianapolis 500 speedway" I video taped all the way around of Margaret driving almost 70 miles per hour, she did 3 laps on this famous track....when she was done we were all laughing and saying what a thrill that was, she was 103 years old on a 103 year old track....She is the oldest women to ever drive on the Indianapolis 500 Speedway! One for the record books!
