579,000 Miles of Motoring Throughout 46 Yrs

A lady from Florida drove her car for the last time after motoring upwards of 46 years and driving more than 576,000 miles. The 93 year old woman drove her much loved “Chariot” for the last time that’s held up by way of 16 new batteries and three marriage breakdowns.

Rachel Veitch purchased the Mercury Comet Caliente in ’66 for $3,289 and willingly decided to end driving since she actually is now recorded as blind. She announced that she had no intension of driving any more.

She possessed a lot of commitment to the Caliente such that every time she refuelled she made a note of the recorded miles and the date and determined how many miles to the gallon the car obtained. She boasts never to be a harmful individual and has always taken care of every little thing that she bought.

She has no plans to passing on her motor vehicle to her family knowing that her four children, nine grandchildren and 11 great grand children would not cherish the vehicle like she has done. Instead she plans to sell it off once it takes part in a antique motor car display in a couple of months time.

She does nevertheless contemplate selling the vehicle to the chat show host Jay Leno who’s a classic motor vehicle lover. She has never spoken with the chat show host but has pondered if he’d like to purchase it.

Car driver Irv Gordon holds the record for the most miles driven in his own 1966 Volvo P1800 which by ’97 had clocked up 1.67 million miles. Estimates now reckon he has probably driven around 2.9 million miles in the same motor vehicle.
