Volvo original vintage advertisement. After 200,000 miles of
rain and snow and heat and gloom of night, both the mailman and
the mail truck are still working. The mailman is 64 year old
Don Ferrin of Chico, California. The mail truck is a six year
old Volvo 544 out of Gothenburg, Sweden. He manages to average
45 miles an hour on his route, even with around 100 stops and
starts. Yet he still gets 26.5 miles to a gallon.
