Tomas Tandstad is turning 98 in a few months and the other day he bought a 98 model Subaru Justy, a 4 wheel drive. He needed the 4 wheel drive because of the road up to cabin. The car was found for sale on Internet, his youngest son (54) helped him to order it.

Every day he drives 9 kilometers to visit his wife, shes at an elder center – isn’t that awesome?

His secret to long life is fresh fish, dark bread and a glass of hombrew ale.

    98-åring kjøpte ny bil
    Jeg må ha firehjulstrekk, for jeg er så ofte på hytta i Straumsdalen, sier 97-åringen.

    så han er 97 da

  2. Stemmer. Besten blir 98 i september, og er framleis sprekare enn dei fleste 65-åringar.

    Det er og den same Tomas Tandstad som spreng konradløpet, ja. Ein årviss tradisjon natt til 1. Mai her i bygda.

      Hei Tomas! Han er jo helt utrolig, jeg måtte lese litt på NMFS sine sider, artig å se at han holder ‘forelesninger’. Han må være en kjemperessurs å ha. Håper han er fornøyd med den nye bilen. 🙂
