Long Island Man Puts 3 Million Miles On One Car

Driving at night.

Yeah, I didn’t believe it at first either. His name is Irv Gordon, a native of Long Island, NY. His saga began in his 20′s when he bought his new 1966 Volvo P1800. He had no idea at that time he would set records.

He purchased the car on a Friday of a long weekend. By Monday he brought it in for its 1,500 mile service. Due to a daily 125 mile round-trip commute, he was hellbent on keeping the car meticulously maintained. In the first 10 years he drove 500,000 miles. In 1998 he made the Guinness Book Of World Records for the most miles driven by a single owner of a noncommercial vehicle, 1.69 million miles. In 2002 he logged the two-millionth mile in front of international media in Times Square. He’s now 74 years old and his car is going strong.

All this reminds me…I’m due for an oil change.
