Half a million miles and still going strong

Sometimes you come across a news story that is too good to pass on and this is one of them. Rachel Veitch is an 89 year old woman & her car, "Chariot" is a 1964 Mercury Comet. They have been together for 43 years & Chariot has lasted longer than Rachel's 3 husbands. You have to check out the video, it is inspiring (this coming from the girl who is always 5,000 miles over due for an oil change). I love that she travels w/ her gun. My Grandmother, who drove everywhere by herself always said she never traveled alone....her buddy Smith (as in Smith and Wesson) would never leave her side.

Thanks to Syd for sending this to us.

Syd also sent a Crazee Old Injun to your site where he liked what he found and added your feed plus added blog to his blogroll.

(Also, said Injun is a motorhead, former racer of most things not needing food, and still certifiably insane)
