Rhinelander woman rides in yellow Mustang for 98th birthday
RHINELANDER - One Rhinelander woman may be nearly 100-years-old, but she still remembers one of her favorite cars, a yellow Mustang.

Betty Graham's only wish for her 98th birthday was to get on the road again with one. 

Today, she did just that with the help of Dan Thurs, the owner of a yellow Mustang. 

"She was pretty happy," said Thurs. "Especially when I revved it up. She started applauding and really liked it."

Ascension Hospice and Rennes Health and Rehab Center organized the day. 

The nurses were happy to see Graham get a birthday she deserves.
