Joe finally got his million!

On October 23rd, Honda hosted a surprise parade in Saco, Maine, to celebrate Joe LoCicero’s amazing accomplishment of hitting one million miles on his 1990 Honda Accord, the longest that model has ever gone.

The city of Saco was the venue for a celebratory “Million Mile Joe” parade that featured, a giant odometer float powered by six people spinning life-sized hamster wheels, Biddeford High School student-made floats, Westbrook High School marching band and color guard, Saco Middle School Marching Band, Shoestring Theater stilt walkers, and over-the-top costumed characters.

While the typical driver clocks about 14,000 miles per year, Joe does that in about three months. Joe’s 1990 Honda Accord has taken him one million miles over the past 15 years, a feat that speaks to the reliability of his Honda as well as the dedication of its driver to reach this unique milestone.

As Joe approached the one-million-mile mark, Honda fans have been following his journey on www.millionmilejoe.com.
