I'm a member of GM Forum'* 200,000 mile club. It'* pretty exclusive, but not nearly as exclusive as our 300k and 400k clubs (both of which have memberships you can count on one hand, if I remember correctly).
While not a GM, this old lady just beat all of us at the mileage game.
These days, most people consider themselves lucky if a new car lasts 5 to 10 years. Make it to 100,000 miles in your vehicle, and the car company might make a commercial about you. That makes 93-year-old Rachel Veitch a notable exception. Veitch is retiring her 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente after more than 576,000 miles on the road.
"I am legally blind, so I can no longer drive my lovely Chariot," Veitch told FoxNews.com. "They don't have to take it away, I would not dream of driving that car again." The car itself is fine, but Veitch has macular degeneration in both her eyes, making her legally blind. After running a red light in March, she decided to voluntarily give up the vehicle she'* been driving since Lyndon Johnson occupied the White House.
