91-year-old puts 562,000 miles on same car

Recommended Posts


My father put over 500000 miles on a 77 dodge van. We put 2 engines in it, one wore out the other got hydro locked after driving in some deep water. He didn't have it for any 50 years though.We replaced the brakes 1 time during that 500K so you can tell the kind of driving he was doing.

This gal's got a lot of guts to drive 120 MPH in a car of that vintage! Maybe she was mad at one of her "unfaithful" husbands at the time.LOL

I really like this type of stories, there are quite a few older cars driving around here by my work, i have even seen an original 67 Camaro and by the looks of it, the car is 100% original, down to the racing green paint. At 46 years of ownership this lady has driven this car an average of 12k a year, and I was hoping to acomplish a million miles on my '98 Altima but at this 12k rate it will take quite a few more years!ROFL
