While her story was local news to us here in Florida, the amazing tale of Rachel Veitch and her '64 Comet Caliente has gone national. Rachel is the original owner of "Chariot," which at 45 years old has more than 600,000 miles on it. Rachel herself is 91 and still drives her Comet. She jokes that her car has served her better than all of her past ex-husbands and she loves to show people receipts for "lifetime" replacement parts that she bought decades ago. Her Comet was on display in building-T and we got to meet Rachel at the Saturday luncheon. Here, she's being given a nice pencil drawing of her own car by renowned artist David Snyder of David Snyder Car Art.
