Submission + - Mr. Gordon Nears 3 Million Miles In His Volvo

jones_supa writes: Irvin Gordon's 1966 Volvo P1800S just keeps on going. The small, red two-door has well more than 2 million miles on the odometer, and hopes are to reach 3 million mile mark by next year. He only has 34,000 miles to go. Now retired schoolteacher from Long Island bought the car in 1966 for $4,150. With trips to Montreal, Texas and Michigan in just the last month, Gordon says 'It's just a car I enjoy driving'. It took him 21 years to reach the first million miles and 15 more years to reach 2 million. Gordon averages 85,000 to 100,000 miles per year. 'I have had coffee in every state. I am my own travel channel', Gordon rejoices.
