    After 576,000 miles....time to hit the brakes

    I believe we had an earlier thread, maybe on the old forum, about Rachel Veitch and her 1966 Mercury Comet Caliente named "Chariot"! After 576,000 and 4 decades of steady driving, since buying her Comet new, Rachel has to give up driving, not because of the Mercury Comet, but due to her failing eye sight!

    Just imagine, trying to get that many miles, out of today's breed of cars, and it's still chugging along.....



    Enjoy

    I was sorry to hear Rachel gave up her keys. Extra special woman! I did see one comment post that made me laugh.

    "Rachel knew her eyesight was failing when she saw gas at $4.00 per gallon."

    Hope Jay Leno or the Ford museum buys her precious Caliente!
