You may remember million-mile Joe, the man who put a million miles on his 1990 Honda accord. Well, he is certainly not the only one to do that with an Accord. In fact, there are a few stories that have cropped up over the last few years that have people going over that major milestone. Today, I’m going to give another example. I found this article that linked to a forum thread way back in 2002 about a Honda accord that had gone over a million. I did a little Google searching and game up with this newspaper clipping about the event. It’s legit. So legit in fact, that it would be a crime for him not to go in my hall of fame.
Back in 2002, Gordon Bearss took his 1993 Honda Accord wagon to the magic milestone, and Honda even got in on the act by inviting him to help them celebrate twenty years in manufacturing cars in the US. There was something about those fourth generation Accords that makes them almost indestructible. I’ll have one more example about this tomorrow. It’s a little crazy.
