Rachel Veitch and her 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente

Thanks to the folks at GrowingBolder.com, this remarkable story of 90-year-old Rachel Veitch and her car can be enjoyed by all.

Through countless years, she describes how reliable her chariot has been (“…more than any of my three husbands”), how she always goes for the lifetime warranty (16 batteries and counting…), and her unique method of theft protection (a handgun hidden within reach.)

Even better, though, is that Veitch genuinely appreciates the act of driving and doesn’t take it for granted. She even mentions that older drivers should be tested regularly to keep their skills sharp.

Salmon Arm…. wet, wet… really wet.

So here we go. A shot from back in ’08. N50251 (Somewhere between Nakusp and Revelstoke). Five days and four nights on the hill after which we were happy to head back to civilization. A decent meal, fresh socks and a flat place to stand when you roll out of bed. It’s the little things…

This was one of several burning giants that had to come down. Small trees in this stand where five feet diameter. Five days I won’t soon forget.
