Most people would never consider keeping their cars past 200,000 miles. After about 100,000 miles cars start needing work. Whether it is timing belts and water pumps, or suspension bits, many people just decide it's time for a new car. But then there are people like Irv Gordon and Million-Mile Joe, two people who would rather keep their current cars for more than a million miles.

Million-Mile Joe is nearing one million miles on his 1990 Honda Accord. He drives nearly 4,700 miles a month in his Accord. Honda is actually building a social media marketing campaign around him as he nears the one million mile mark this summer.

Irv Gordon is nearing three million miles on his 1966 Volvo P1800. A car that this writer views as one of the best looking Volvos of all time. Irv drives an average of 64,444 miles per year, which is more miles than most people drive in two or even three years. Irv is already in the Guinness Book of World Records, and he continues to have his status updated as he puts the miles on his Volvo.
