15: 1988 Volvo 740 GLE
Another interesting Volvo in the company’s long, storied history is the 740 GLE. Vic Dres got his 1988 Volvo 740 GLE over the million-mile mark and continues to drive it. “A Grover Beach man has driven his 1988 Volvo GLE a total of one million miles. Yes, that’s one million with seven digits. You’d be correct in guessing, too, that most mile meters don’t even register that many digits; the feat rolled the odometer of the one million-mile Volvo back to sextuple zeroes. When Vic Dres purchased the 1988 Volvo 740 GLE in 1988, he did so with the very specific goal of hitting the one million mile figure.” – via The News Wheel
