La Macchina means car, but can't it also mean "machine". Therefore, couldn't the sentence, "La macchina e vecchio." be translated as the machine is old?

Ciao Concetta, it's correct: "macchina" is the word for "car" as well as "machine". If you want to say: "the car is old" , you will need to say" "la macchina e' vecchia" ("a" at the end as "macchina" is feminine). I hope this helps :) ciao
