Our gal pal, 92-year-old Rachel Veitch, has really hit the big time. When our original story on Rachel and Chariot started racking up millions of pageviews, the rest of the media took notice. Rachel has been featured on TV and radio stations nationwide, including the Today Show. She’s been in major newspapers and thousands of blogs.
And in August 2010, Rachel's dream came true -- she appeared on NBC's The Tonight Show with fellow car lover, Jay Leno. And she wasn’t alone. The Tonight Show also shipped Chariot from Florida to California for the show.
We stopped by to see Rachel off as she was whisked to the airport in style. And true to form, Rachel told us she has a few demands of Mr. Leno.
