Every now and then, we like to do classic car and truck stories with an interesting human interest angle. This month’s article profiles Bob Sportel and his 1957 Chevy truck. 38 years ago, Bob ponied up 75 bucks for cheap transportation to get him back and forth to work. He never bought another work truck.
Bob’s truck has an estimated 300,000 miles on it—the odometer hasn’t worked in years—and there is no radio. Liberal use of Bondo has kept the headlights in place and the upholstery is patched with duct tape, but this half ton Chevy still runs like a champ.
