    But has she changed the cam belt?

    BBC News - For sale: 1964 Mercury, one lady owner, 576,000 miles



    For sale: 1964 Mercury, one lady owner, 576,000 miles

    A 93-year-old Florida grandmother has parked her car for good after driving 576,000 miles (927,000km) over 48 years at the wheel of one trusty vehicle.

    Rachel Veitch bought her Mercury Comet Caliente for $3,289 in February 1964. It has outlasted three marriages and 18 battery changes, she says.

    On 9 March she had to give up driving as she has become legally blind.

    Mrs Veitch plans to sell the car instead of giving it to her family amid concerns they might not look after it.

    **************

    While Mrs Veitch has clocked more miles than a trip to the moon and back, her car does not hold the record for the most miles travelled.

    Irv Gordon entered the Guinness Book of World Records in 1998 with 1.69 million miles on his 1966 Volvo P1800. It is reported that he has now accumulated close to three million miles on the same car.

    Both past their prime, but they look to have aged gracefully together.
