This is a great little video about a 97 year old grandfather discovering a Model S... you'll quickly realize by the way this is up in Canada since kms are mentioned several times and you hear the classical 'aout' sound in 'abaout'... ;) (in Ontario actually per the license plate you see at the end)

It's true. Now my dad is not close to 97, he just turned 60 (Model S for for the big 6...0....).

But I will say growing up my dad has had some cool cars from Corvettes to 911s to BMW M3, etc, but I have never seen him grin like he did when he first drove his Model S. It was like I had a glimpse of my dad as a 16 year old getting to drive for the first time.

These cars have an amazing effect on people!

A Tesla owner shows his 97-year-old Grandpa a car from the future! This video is adorable, and it sparks a question.

If you've shown your Tesla to an older family member or friend, what was the feature they got the biggest kick out of?
