Can a car really make it to one million miles?

I believe this story is an interesting follow-up to my previous post about whether or not it is possible for your vehicle to reach the one million miles mark. Today it was reported in the Weird but True column of the New York Post  that a 90-year-old woman, Rachel Veitch, still drives her 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente every day. It has already racked up 559,000 miles.

The Florida woman reports she has the oil changed every 3,000 miles and maintains extensive maintenance records for the vehicle.
