Rachel and her 1964 Comet Caliente time capsule car

alas, where did video go?

Reader Frank gets snaps for spotting this great video — a true “time capsule” car. I’m thinkin’ this is the platform just before the first-ever Mustang (a 64-1/2 model) came out. Thanks, Frank, keep ’em coming!

Hi Pam,

The link below is not necessarily on topic of retro homes, but it is a cute story about an 89-year-old woman who still drives her immaculate 1964 Mercury Comet with 540,000 miles on the odometer. I’d guess you could call it a time capsule car. Just like the mid century ranch homes, the cars of the 1960’s had beautiful clean lines. Thanks for keeping up your great site.

Frank

    I was told by the mechanic whom changes my oil that cars will just about last forever if you change them on suggested intervals.

    The car I drive (a 1967 Ford Ranchero) has 10,000 miles over what her car does, and my dad bought it new. It’s on it’s fifth engine however, so she has a few more bragging rights than I do. I’m just happy to see people still driving these older, but very dependable cars.
