We’ve shared several stories of people buying and driving sports cars at an old age. Once we reported in a 78-year-old getting a McLaren 720S, plus an 80-year-old who still drives his Ferrari F40. We’ve even featured a 107-year-old who casually cruises with his red two-seater Mercedes SLK 320.
Point is, age doesn’t define a person’s need for speed – and that is the case with this U.S. Air Force veteran who bought himself a Torch Red 2021 Chevy Corvette Stingray.
The 90-year-old Chuck Cook bought his Vette from Cecil Clark Chevrolet, which shared the heartwarming delivery of the sports car on its Facebook page. Even better, the dealership amplified the event further by arranging a party for Cook, with his Corvette Club in attendance and complete with refreshments, balloons, and a cake with a Corvette C8 photo printed on top of the icing.
