(SACO, ME)(NBC) - One million miles on a car is almost unimaginable for many people. For Joe LoCicero, it is what he's been working towards for years.

Main Street in Saco, Maine was shut down Sunday afternoon to throw a surprise parade in celebration of Joe's accomplishment.

Joe puts on average 14,000 miles a month on his 1990 Honda Accord because of his work, which takes him all across the state. He works as a mechanic consultant for car warranty companies.

He says there really is no secret to keeping his car on the road this long. Most of it's main parts like its engine and even front calipers are all originals. He has changed a few parts, but says he kept up with the manufacture maintenance schedule and its been pretty smooth driving.

Joe was given a brand new 2012 Honda Accord presented by Miss Maine.

A production crew from Honda was shooting an ad of Joe's million mile venture. They say they'll make a two minute promotional video that will go on the web of Sunday's event, and possibly a national ad to air on TV as well in the future.
