Not diesel or MB related but certainly worth a mention. My salutes to Honda and the person who kept it.

I think this is the record:

http://www.worldcarfans.com/classics.cfm/classicid/5060620.001/country/ecf/2.5-million-mile-volvo-40th-anniversary

By the way, it looks in even better shape in real life than in the picture.

I claim foul on the non commercial part of that record.
I mean it was pretty much the guy's job to drive... sure he owned the car, but he worked for volvo, so really, it's an advertisement as well. and I but he got reimbursed for the mileage. most of it anyway.

Actually he was a science teacher. He didn't start working for a Volvo dealership until nine years AFTER he reached the 1,000,000 mile mark and retiring from teaching.

That car and that man are well known to Volvo fans everywhere. One like it was featured on the old Roger Moor TV set, "The Saint"

The old rear wheel drive Volvos really do last a long time.
