Irv Gordon bought this Volvo 1800S in 1966 and since then it had done 3 million miles.
Irv said that it was rather undramatic as he was just cruising on Seward Highway, at the village of Hope, south of Anchorage in the state of Alaska when it ticked over. Irv clocked 125 miles in his daily commute and logged 500,000 miles in 10 years. In 1987, he celebrated his one-millionth mile driving a loop around the Tavern on the Green in Central Park and in 2002, he drove the car’s two-millionth mile down Times Square to international media attention.
He said, “it has really not been about just getting to the three million miles; it’s more about the trips that got me to the three million miles and what I have experienced getting there. I never had a goal to get to one million, to two million. I just enjoyed driving and experiencing life through my Volvo.”
