Hey all,<P>I just wanted to remind everyone that Volvo's 75th Anniversary is today! Irv Gordon's P1800 should be hitting 2-Millon miles sometime today. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> They might have something about it on ABC's Good Morning America today or tomorrow, just a guess.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>On March 27th, Long Island native and retired science teacher, Irv Gordon, is scheduled to reach a milestone no other individual has accomplished in the more than 100 years of the automobile: driving two million miles in the same vehicle.<P>To mark the occasion, Gordon plans to drive his shiny red 1966 Volvo P1800 through the heart of New York City on Broadway, cruising up to 44th Street in Times Square, where he'll be the honoured guest at Volvo Cars of North America's 75th anniversary party. The Swedish auto maker's celebration will be held from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. (EST) at Times Square Studios, home of ABC-TV's "Good Morning America."<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>-Drew

Irv was at the NYAS yesterday in the Volvo booth at the Volvo press conference. He seemed like a nice guy. We missed the 75th Anniversary event down at the CBS studios, but you have to admit that's a very impressive thing to do. I don't know that I could keep any car for 36 years.
