KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kathleen Stafford may be 96 years old but that's not stopping her from going fast. Stafford has a need for speed and on her birthday she received a cruise inside a 2013 Maserati Gran Turismo, crossing off an item on her bucket list.
"I've ridden in other sports cars but not like this," said Stafford. "It was wonderful, I love it."
The idea began as a game at Hidden Lake Care Center. Residents shared their favorite cars, most of the responses were Cadillac’s and Lincoln’s, but not stafford. She wanted the $150,000 sports car.
Kris Nielson of Aristocrat Motors of Kansas City, Kan., says it was a no brainer to make that dream come true.
"When we heard about it, we were elated and said yeah, of course we will bring a car out, " said Nielson.
Stafford even got her hair done for the birthday road trip.
