540,000 miles on the original engine - NOT what you expect

Just watch the video and wait for the part where the guy asks her if she's afraid to travel alone.

That's bitching.

Old lady sounds like she's doing what she wants when she wants to do it.

Cool story.


Reminds me of my mom except for the car. My mom gets a new one every few years but she goes where she wants, when she wants. She routinely makes the trip between FL and OH by herself. She just turned 80 and travels with a SS .357 to keep her company.

I have "heard" 90% of wear and tear to an engine happens in the first oilless seconds of startup?

It's actually the cold starts. That's way taxis usually get real high mileages, they never get cold.

wow

This is an unusual love story involving an 89-year-old woman and her beloved Chariot. The two have been together for decades and traveled more than 540,000 miles across this nation's highways and side streets.

update to the story

Is Rachel Veitch still going strong at nearly 91? Is her beloved "Chariot" still going strong at well over half-a-million miles? It's been nearly two years since we checked up on a GB favorite and her classic Mercury Caliente car. We just had to know if both are still racking up the mileage.

The fact that it's not running makes me sad, I wonder what's wrong with it.
