89 y/o still driving 1964 Mercury

This one - you've got to watch!

Florida resident 89-year-old Rachel Veitch is still driving "Chariot", a 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente that she bought new for $3,289.30. Chariot has over 540,000 miles on the odometer - on the original engine, too. Rachel buys lifetime warranties on parts, like battery, shocks and the muffler.

Watch the video and you'll know why! Whatta gal!!!

The reporter asked her if she, at age 89 and an old car with 540,000 miles on it, is ever afraid to travel alone. You'll love her answer! (Sorry, no spoilers here...)
