Closing in on 1 Million Miles


What you see here is a Volvo 240 unlike any other Volvo 240 on the road...that's because this one has covered more miles than it would take for you to reach the moon and back...twice. This Volvo 240 belongs to Selden Cooper, who purchased it new from Lehman Volvo in 1986. Since then he has put on 999,100 miles and will reach that 1 million mile mark on Saturday, September 22nd, nearly 26 years since he bought the car.

"This is only the second Volvo I've owned!" states Selden, who had no intention on racking up this many miles when he took delivery of his car. At some point it became a mission to reach that 1 million miles. He is not alone however. Irv Gordon, who owns a classic 1966 Volvo P1800 coupe, reached the 1 million mark over a decade ago. In fact, he will reach 3 million miles this time next year. In the meantime, Irv and Seldon will be meeting up at Volvo Cars North America's open house at the end of this month. Between the two of them they have plenty of road stories to share.

Seldon's 1 millionth mile journey will happen at Lehman Volvo on the Carlisle Pike, Saturday morning. Be there to cheer on this momentous occasion!
