Three million miles in one car - level 2

Three million miles in one car - level 2

Everyone wants a reliable car, right? A car which doesn't break down and works well for many years. One New Yorker has a car like this.

He bought the car in 1966. That was 47 years ago. After he bought it, he started driving around town to show it to all his friends. He continued driving to Connecticut and to his college in Massachusetts. When he got home from the trip, he had put 1,500 miles on the car.

Then he travelled more and more. The car which he originally needed only to get to work and back became a legend. He now has driven more than three million miles with it. It must be a world record.

Difficult words: reliable (of good quality), break down (stop working).
