80-Year-Old Woman Pulls a Side Wheelie with Her Fiat Panda by Accident

don’t know if you knew this, but doing a wheelie with a car is a damn hard thing to do. Just getting in the right position is a tricky business, but keeping your balance is even harder. Well, this 80-year-old granny has pulled it off recently and she became an Internet sensation.

The footage below shows the driver approaching a curb with no intention of slowing down before wobbling dangerously and ending up on two wheels for a second. The whole thing was caught on camera by the CCTV of a gas station from where the woman was leaving.

Our guess is that she didn’t even realize how lucky she was to have survived this stunt, as the Fiat Panda she was driving could’ve easily tilted all the way over and possibly injured her in the process.

Having taken place in Carmarthenshire, Wales, we have a sneaky suspicion that’s not an old woman behind the wheel but someone else. How would you feel if I told you that it could be James May?

Think about it! He owns a Fiat Panda and is renowned for it. He is called Captain Slow and the car in the video is driving slow, there’s no doubt about it. Furthermore, the man could use some publicity now, as he waits for his new work to kick off under Amazon’s umbrella.

If this video turns viral, it could prove to be a great marketing stunt not only for him but Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond as well.

All jokes aside, the original poster of the video, Sian Jones, said that the moment was hilarious as the woman behind the wheel didn’t seem fazed at all while all of the following was happening. We actually believe that, as from a certain age on you don’t realize exactly what is going on around you...
