If you think your car has an extremely high mileage, wait till you meet this Volvo P1800 which was purchased for N1.5m ($4,150) in 1966 by a man called Irv Gordon. He bought the car at a time that was almost a whole year’s pay. According to him,”It is a pretty car, A friend showed me a photo in Road & Track in 1966. I fell in love with it. It cost $4,150, and I only had $4,200 to my name. I was broke.”
In 1976 he hit 500,000 miles and in 1998… 1.69 million miles, Gordon made the Guinness Book of World Records for most miles driven by a single owner of a noncommercial vehicle.
Volvo has granted him any car he wants. The Alaskan said he’ll still be driving the Volvo P1800, but not all the time anymore, he has become a fan of new things.
What’s the maximum mileage you’ve ever hit with your car?
