Walter Thomas Grandpa Garage Youtube

This story has been reprinted from its original publishing date in July 2015 for #ThrowbackThursday.

Usually when you hear stories about older people crashing cars into buildings, it’s by accident.

But when 91-year-old Walter Thomas of Woodstock, Illinois rammed a car through a garage door, it was a very deliberate dream come true.

When Thomas told his granddaughter Becky that his one and only fantasy was to drive through a garage door, she got to work figuring out how to make it happen.

Eventually, she and her family were able to track down both a demolition car and a garage door that was already worn down and going to be replaced anyway.

When Thomas came crashing through the garage in reverse, Becky said “it was like he was a little boy again.”

Thomas also said that the garage stunt was so much fun, he might consider sky diving next.
