From the GlobalSpec Newsletter:
Amid all the hand-wringing over Toyota’s recalls, one 90-year-old woman proves that a car can last almost indefinitely if you take care of it, reports Growing Bolder. Rachel bought her 1964 Mercury Comet new and has put every one of the 540,000 miles on the vehicle. She wisely purchased lifetime warranties on many of the parts, which has yielded no-cost replacement of three sets of shocks, seven mufflers, and 16 batteries.
