Default Million mile Chevy

1 million miles on a 1991 Chev Silverado. Not too shabby. I'd be happy with a million kilometers.

I remember the media types making a big deal when a Volkswagen beetle first broke the million mile mark.

I know it was a big deal the year I broke the million mile mark the first time.

I'm not surprised. I have seen many Chevy trucks go well over 500k. In fact, here is a post from a while back (don't post in it ) about my great uncle'* Chevy that hit 600k in April '07. Not sure what it has on it now, but it still runs.
