What ever happened to that old Mercedes that had racked up a huge 
number of miles?    It showed up in a few commercials a while 
back,  still running the roads somewhere in the southwest or some 
other desert looking area.

By the way, there's a few steam locomotives in museums that 
accumulated well over a million miles before they were finely retired.

...if I put a million miles on my '60 4-door, will GM give me big 
bucks and a new somethingorother providing they're still actually 
building cars themselves in the USA by then...?
