Million-Mile Milwaukee Saab

Milwaukee-area financial-services salesman Peter Gilbert racked up 1,001,385 miles on his 1989 Saab 900, a vehicle that has been known to take out deer like it ain't no thang, given that it was designed by the Swedes to withstand moose impacts. In the 17 years he's owned the car, he's crashed into eight of the animals, replaced the trans 800,000 miles ago, noting that he realized he could probably go a million miles when he hit 600k and noticed no sign of burning oil. The Million-Mile 900 now resides in the Wisconsin Automotive Museum. Gilbert, not surprisingly, bought another Saab.
