107-year-old driver and his Mercerdes become heroes of the Internet

In the United States, one of the oldest drivers was discovered. He is over 100 years old, and a man moves on a Mercedes convertible.

About the unusual driver told YouTube channel Inside Edition. Florida resident Joe Newman is 107 years old, but despite such a serious age, the American is actively moving behind the wheel of a red two-seater Mercedes SLK 320, which he had previously purchased from his orthopedist.

According to Newman, the secret of his eternal youth is that he regularly works both on his mind and body. However, a few years ago he was involved in politics (at the age of 101, he even ran for US Congress), and now lives with his 99-year-old bride. Joe noted that they intend to play the wedding, but have not yet decided on the date of its holding.

The 107-year-old driver believes that those drivers who are more than 100 years old need to have a regular medical examination every six months so that they do not endanger themselves or other people. As for Joe himself, his driver’s license is valid until 2022. With the Mercedes, too, everything is fine – the car looks and works fine.
