    If I owned a car like that, I would change my oil to.

    Today though with the price of oil and to buy a filter, I find it costs me roughly the same amount to just go to an auto store, and have some else do it.

    Plus I live in a apartment that won't allow outside oil changes.

    Anyway, good for her, she looks very healthy for being 102! She looks healthy for being 80!

    ...thing is the oil filters at those places arent very good and nobody there is going to treat your car like their own. i enjoy doing whatever wrench work i can do on my own rigs. id recommend anybody that owns a new newer or beloved car to buy your oil filters and crush washers from the dealer. certain things it makes a big difference.

    i hope im rolling that good when im 102, hard to imagine all that womans seen in her life.

    I don't buy it the positioning of the filter would put the old dame in a home.

    Most of those old cars don't have oil filters.

    ...way different design than what youre suggesting. its probably a canaster filter with a wingnot on the cap and an o ring to seal it. it doesnt even have to be very tightly torqued.

    good question itude, i wonder if she ever rocked the back seat. lol.

    No telling! Article said she'd never married. Also that she lived near the Gleason family and Henry Ford. Great story.

    I wonder when we'll get the story of her running over a bunch of pedestrians after she confuses the gas and the breaks
