SACO, Maine — A Norway man hit a milestone for car maker Honda this month when his car became the first documented vehicle by the Japanese maker to hit 1 million miles.

Joe LoCicero, 53, was honored on Sunday by a parade in Saco put on by Honda, where he was presented with a brand new Honda Accord.

While some parts have had to be replaced, LoCicero says his 1990 Honda is still running on its original engine and transmission. He bought the car in 1996 when it had 74,000 miles on it and has maintained it through the years using only Honda-approved parts.
