For retired science teacher Irv Gordon, driving is an obsession. This Wednesday, March 27, Irv will drive his shiny red 1966 Volvo P1800 into New York's Times Square, as the odometer hits 2 million miles -- a world record. Irv is still driving with the original engine and transmission. How does he keep a car going for 2 million miles? Irv recommends changing your oil every 3,000 miles. His Volvo P1800 has had 667 oil changes, 400 spark plugs, 6,400 fill-ups at the gas station, 80 tires and -- get this -- he's only received two parking tickets.
