The automotive universe sometimes produces absolutely incredible stories. This story of the Minnesota who bought back the pickup truck his grandfather sold 44 years ago for the same $75 price is absolutely mind-boggling.
Here are the facts.
44 years ago, in 1976, John VanDerVeen, a farmer who entering retirement, sold his 1957 Chevrolet truck to a man by the name of Bob Sportal, at the time a young man in his early 20s. For the next 38 years, he would use it on a daily basis for commuting to and from work. In fact, he continued to drive the pickup do so until he retired in early 2015.
