This Man Just Completed 3 Million Miles In His 1966 Volvo.

Yesterday, Irv Gordon completed his 3 millionth mile with his 1966 Volvo P1800 on the Seward Highway – Alaska Highway 1 – along the Turnagain Arm. Irv has owned the car since new, so this means it has 3 million original miles.

Here’s one of the most storied haulers in motorsport—in fact, it’s the same 1959 Fiat truck in the lead photo at the top of this story. Originally built for Lance Reventlow’s Scarab operation (as shown here), the Bartoletti-bodied rig was then sold to Lotus, and then to Carroll Shelby’s Cobra outfit in Europe, which added a third axle. The transporter went through several more racing teams, was used in the film LeMans, and spent a decade or two parked in the Arizona desert before it was restored to its current pristine condition by California collector Don Orosco.

Here’s the same Fiat-Bartoletti double decker rig when it was operated by the Ford-backed Alan Mann team based in Byfleet, Surrey, England. If those ramps could talk.

Here's what happens when you push the L button with the engine wound to six grand. NHRA made neutral drops illeagal because of this and inovative racers came up with the trans brake. I'm guessing Dodge 300 or Plymouth Belvedre with 413 or 426 max wedge, note the two fours.

Hellé Nice 1900-1984 was a model, dancer, and a Grand Prix driver. Her career was destroyed in 1949 by a racing collegue Louis Chiron who denounced the female driver by declaring that she had been an agent of the Gestapo during WWIII. His unsubstantiated allegation destroyed Nice's life and she would be shunned by all, dying in abject poverty.

Simple, but effective. A tire gauge is a tool every man should own (and use periodically), even if he doesn't know how to change a tire or the oil...
