Vintage Porsche drove one million miles

And so it is no wonder that "Blue", the name of the blue 356, has crisscross together in his journeys through the States now has 992,000 miles.

I wish when they talk about such old high mileage cars that they'd say how much money had been spent on them for maintenance. Not that it isn't awesome that this guy has driven a 356 a million miles. I'd imagine that the type of person to keep a car that long would keep pretty thorough records.

Hi Buddha,

IMHO the best GT in the world at the time....and still a nice ride! BTW, you can get one of these now for WAY less than a Prius--but your gas bill will make up the difference.

Again, neat, not beautiful. This driverless thing has been cruising the streets of San Fran and getting noticed all weekend.
