Delivery Driver Hit 20,00,000 Kilometres With His 1993 Toyota Corolla And It’s Still Rolling

“It will run forever.”

A delivery driver has proudly hit two million kilometres of his car’s milestone and he has been running on a 1993 Toyota Corolla. The New Zealand man, however, is not retiring his car and still drives it since reaching the milestone in March this year.

72-year-old Graeme Hebley says that his car might just run “forever” at this rate. You could say it was a jest, but the car has, indeed, run for at least 20 years.

Graeme shared that he bought the car secondhand in 2000 and back then, it only had 80,000 kilometers. The delivery driver has been working on the job since 1968, initially for a newspaper company. Now his route starts from Wellington, to New Plymouth, and then back for six days a week, which would take 9.5 hours every day.

He travels over 5km a week and would send it for service to Guthrie’s Auto Care in Whanganui every fortnight. The mechanic, John Sherman, shared, “If I hadn’t worked on it, I wouldn’t believe it. I wouldn’t believe it could do two million without something going wrong.”

He proceeded to praise the durability of older Toyota models and Graeme’s routine in maintaining the vehicle.

He was pleasantly impressed as he’s never seen anyone reach anywhere near that, with the second place being a 700,000km milestone. And the delivery driver is nowhere done as he continues working on his job.

“How could you not love this car? Whatever you do, it just bounces back,” said the driver. “The car might outlast me at this point.”
