I think I’m pretty good at catching the high-mile stories. In fact I’m actually terrible at it. All of 2016 went by and I completely missed this story of Victor Sheppard and his amazing 2007 Toyota Tundra. A Tundra he put a million freaking miles on and then got to exchange for a brand-new Toyota. I’m sure the engineers wanted access to that amazing tundra. It still had the original engine, transmission and paint job. Amazing! According to the press release, he drove 125,000 miles a year in that Tundra. Wow, my butt is sore just thinking about all those driving hours.
Mr. Sheppard, we here at HMC salute you. You’ve done what few people could. Drive a vehicle a million miles. And for that, I’m adding you to the hall of fame. Your truck will be in nineteenth place. I’m still trying to figure out what his final odometer reading was. If I can figure it out, I’ll just round it to the final million.
