93 Year Old Women FINALLY Stops Driving Car With 576,000 Miles On It

I bet you think your car is special when your odometer hits 100,000 miles, or maybe even 200,000, but that is NOTHING compared to Florida resident Rachel Veitech.

Rachel is retiring her 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente after more than 576,000 miles on the pavement.

After being declared “legally blind”, Rachel knows she can’t drive anymore.

Vietch is fond of noting that the car has outlasted three marriages. Mechanically, it’s worn through three sets of shocks, 18 batteries and eight mufflers. Veitch bought the car in February 1964 for just $3,289.

She credits the longevity to a “near-obsessive” approach to the car’s maintenance. “I’ve never been a destructive person and I’ve just taken care of everything, except my husbands,” she told FoxNews.
