Lillian Cox (born February 22, 1907) is an American centenarian who at age 101, was honored as America's Oldest Driver in 2008.
She lived for most of her life in Tallahassee, Florida, and drove her 1984 Sedan Deville around the neighborhood, before finally selling it in 2009. Lillian first got behind the wheel of her 1916 Model T in 1915, when she was only 8-years old at the time. She reportedly said:
"I drove when I wasn't supposed to be driving. We were 8 or 9 years old."〔 Lillian earned her title back in 2008 at age 101.〔(【引用サイトリンク】archiveurl=http://web.archive.org/web/20090116003442/http://www.clickorlando.com/news/16422372/detail.html )〕〔(【引用サイトリンク】archiveurl=http://web.archive.org/web/20120313181913/http://www.wctv.tv/someoneyoushouldknow/headlines/19333179.html )〕 At the time in 2008, she had renewed her license 3 months earlier; though it expired in 2011. Lillian had made a guest appearance on a Barbara Walters' TV special,〔http://www.adlercentenarians.org/lillian_cox.htm〕 and as the titleholder for America's Oldest Driver, Jay Leno still wanted her to appear on The Tonight Show; though she preferred to ride in a limousine for the occasion. In 2002, she drove her Sedan Deville from Tallahassee to Houston, Texas 3 to 5 times a year, aged 95 at the time. Lillian drove her Sedan Deville for more than 28 years, and remembers back in her youth when gas only cost 15 cents a gallon.
