There's also another Volvo which is a record breaker with 3 Million miles (and counting) logged so far! It's a 1966 Volvo P1800S bought new by it's owner and still driven by the same owner. Here's a link to an article on another blog:

Default Re: Cars with 7 digits on their odometer (over 1 million kms / miles)

Here is another similar story. A driving school owner of Indian origin used his Toyota Corolla for close to a million kilometers in Canada. I thought it is worth sharing, though it is a bit old news.

Quote:
Not long after Rajah Sellathurai moved from India to Canada more than three decades ago, a friend gave him a suggestion about purchasing a car. Buy a Toyota, Rajah was advised, because they are reliable and last a long time.

Rajah heeded the advice and bought a Tercel, enjoying all 540,000 kilometres he put on it. Then he tried a Corolla and has been fiercely loyal to the model ever since. Having just purchased his sixth Corolla a couple of months ago, he cumulatively drove his previous five Corollas more than three million total kilometres. That includes almost one million (998,000 km to be precise) on his cherished green 2001 model.

With such readings on the odometer, I just cannot imagine the time spent behind the wheel by the person. Probably he has spent more time in his car than outside the car.
