I had to talk about him sooner or later. You can’t avoid the name Irv Gordon when talking about people and high mile cars. He is the undisputed king of keeping your ride going. You see, way back in 1966, he bought himself a brand new Volvo P1800 coupe. He then proceeded to do what no one else has ever managed. He drove it three million miles. Yes. Three million. He achieved that milestone in September of last year. He is in the Guinness Book of World Records for that, and I doubt anybody will ever come close to challenging him. ¬†You could write a series of books about his adventures. I can’t really say anything else that hasn’t been said, but if you search for him on google, you’ll find some amazing stuff. Basically, he is the reason I started this blog. I think the best place to learn about Irv and his journey is here.
