Classic Car Record: Volvo P1800 3 Million Mile Motor
Classic Car Record: Volvo P1800 3 Million Mile Motor
Auto mad Irvin Gordon is set to enter the record books when his beloved
classic car Volvo P1800 clocks up a staggering THREE MILLION miles. And
incredibly the 70-year-old's classic car Volvo P1800 - which he bought in
1966- has NEVER broken down. To date, Irvin's classic Volvo P1800 has had
857 oil changes, 30 drive belts, 150 points and spark plugs - and guzzled
120 bottles of transmission fluid. The retired school teacher bought the
classic Volvo P1800 convertible for £2,650 after a THREE-HOUR test drive
with a friend. In 2009, the classic car received a Guinness World Record
for the 'Highest Vehicle Mileage', clocking in excess of 2,721,000 miles.

MOTOR-mad Irvin Gordon is set to enter the record books when his beloved
Volvo clocks up a staggering THREE MILLION miles.
And incredibly the 70-year-old's runaround - which he bought in 1966- has
NEVER broken down.
To date, Irvin's car has had 857 oil changes, 30 drive belts, 150 points
and spark plugs - and guzzled 120 bottles of transmission fluid.
The retired school teacher bought the convertible for £2,650 after a
THREE-HOUR test drive with a friend.
Irvin, from Long Island, New York, said: "I just couldn't get out of the
car. I was having such a good time.
"I spent all Friday night, all day Saturday, all day Sunday and came back
Monday for a 1500 mile check up.
"Most people think it's crazy that I've clocked up so many miles -- but
driving is my drug of choice.
"Where other people get rid of their cars after a few years, I've never got
tired of mine.
"I used to go on driving holidays and had a 125 mile commute to work every
day -- so the miles just added up."
Over 46 years with his car Irvin has driven through the USA, UK, Sweden,
Denmark, Germany, France, Holland, Canada and Mexico.
He averages 60,000 miles a year - but can do as many as 100,000.
He said: "I'm sure I'll feel very bad once I find out how much I've spent
on maintaining the car - I spent thousands of dollars every year on
"But I like to drive -- it's my hobby.
"I choose to spend my time at the gas station filling the car up."
Divorced Irvin says one benefit of being on the road so much is he knows
American highways so well he no longer needs a map.
He said: "My friends used to think I was slightly nuts for driving as much
as I do, but now that I am getting all of this attention for my Volvo, they
are very impressed.
"I've made a lot of friends because of this car."
In nearly 50 years of ownership, his car has never broken down. However,
the car may have broken other things for Irvin.
He said: "I don't see my ex-wife or my kids. I can't say if that is because
of the driving."
Irvin will be driving his three millionth mile on his Volvo P1800 in Alaska
this autumn - then plans to continue using the car unless someone purchases
He said: "I'm entertaining the idea of selling it for a dollar a mile.
"It's just been driven by a little old school teacher on the weekends.
"It has never been in the rain, snow or any inclement weather.
"It's practically a new car!"

BackyardBuild Summer 2012 Turbo VW Bug preview.mpg
Here is a preview of how the car sits now, summer 2012. I have about 95% of
the bodywork done and have coated everything with 2 layers of black epoxy
primer. Lots more tune up has yielded a good running late model classic VW
beetle. As you can see I have a bunch of work left to do on the interior,
but all the gauges and lighting function. To beef everything up on the
3SGTE engine I had to utilize an aftermarket ECU, I chose the Vi-Pec. The
last part of the video shows what this setup can do. She's fast...
1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Engine Start
First time starting up the 2333 cc engine (91x84mm) that I installed in my
wife's freshly restored 1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia convertible. Yes, I
know my coil is installed upside-down. The after-market wire harness was
installed with too little slack to reach a downward-pointing coil. This is
