Who doesn’t remember their first car…. Mine was a Chevy Malibu Wagon. Oh man, I miss that car so much….That’s why I admired this guy… Bob Sportel was in his early 20s and needing a cheap ride to work, when he paid $75 for a rusty Chevrolet pickup truck. He never imagined he’d be driving it into his own retirement. This week Sportel retired from his job at the Prinsburg Farmers Co-op, still driving to work in the same 58-year-old truck.
“It kept going so I just kept driving it,” says Sportel, who had tried to negotiate the price down to $50 before paying the local farmer who owned the truck his asking price. What a wonderful story… So, what was the FIRST car you owned?
