NEW YORK: US motorist who bought a Volvo in 1966 and already holds a Guinness World Record is about to pass the 3 million mile (4.8 million kilometre) mark in the nearly 50-year-old Swedish brand car.
Gordon's small, red two-door has well more than two mil-lion miles (3.22 million km) on the odometer, the equivalent of nearly 1,176 times across the globe. The retired schoolteacher from Long Island hopes to reach the three million mile mark by next year. He only has 34,000 miles (54,717 km) to go.
Gordon, 72, drives his Volvo everywhere. He has held the Guinness World Records mark for high mileage vehicle since 2002 and was the first person to hold that record.
"It's just a car I enjoy driving," he said. (Monitoring Desk)
