Man Pays $75 for a Truck That he Still Drives 38 Years Later

Here’s a wonderful little story to kick of 2015. I found this one on Autoblog, and I’m giving them full credit, though I suspect the local news is the real hero here. Bob Sportel bought himself a 1957 Chevy Truck to get to his new job, and continues to drive the same truck today. He claims the vehicle has around 300,000 miles on it, but can’t be sure because the odometer hasn’t worked in years. It’s rusty and falling apart, but it gets the job done.  I thought I’d mention the story here on HMC as it’s one of those feel-good stories about a person and their prized truck. It just goes to show what you can do when you are determined to save a little money.
