91-Year-Old Man Smashes SUV Through Garage Door, Fulfilling Bizarre Bucket List Item

Walter Thomas has checked one unusual item off his bucket list with his family's help.

An elderly suburban Chicago man who had always wanted to know what it was like to smash a car through a garage door now knows the feeling.

Walter Thomas, 91, of Woodstock, was able to slam an SUV through a garage door with his family's help.

The garage was slated to be torn down, and the SUV was donated — so Thomas' action was of no consequence.

Then it was up to Thomas to back it through the garage door and check that off his bucket list.

"I hit the gas, squealed the tires and bang — we went through the door," Thomas said.

Thomas says he doesn't know what he could do to top that.
