The New York International Auto Show is underway in Manhattan. It runs through April 27th and features the latest and greatest from automotive manufacturers. This show attracts a million people every year. Some of us, though, are more interested in keeping the wheels we already have on the road.
How many miles are on the car with most documented mileage?
1. one million miles

3. three million miles
The answer is: 3. three million miles
Retired teacher Irv Gordon hit the three million mile mark in his trusty Volvo P1800 last fall. The story was on television and in a press release on the Volvo website. According to the Volvo site, Gordon never set out just to break a record in his cherry red 1966 Volvo. He had a 125-mile round trip daily commute and racked up more than a half million miles in the first ten years he had the car. The website said that Gordon reached a milestone that one one else has.
