Man who drove $75 pickup for 44 years sells it to original owner’s grandson for $75

MINNEAPOLIS — A Minnesota male sold the 1957 Chevy pickup he drove for 44 a long time for $75, the similar price tag he compensated many years in the past.

Bob Sportal of Prinsburg handed more than the critical past month to the grandson of the person he bought the truck from, KARE-TV reported.

Sportal was in his early 20s when he purchased the rusty pickup from a retiring farmer. He drove the truck to do the job each individual day at a area grain elevator right until he retired 5 several years back.

Sportal held driving the truck but made a decision to promote it to Tom Leenstra, grandson of the late John VanDerVeen, who at first marketed the truck to Sportal.

“It’s like using with my grandpa once more,” Leenstra stated.

The truck is an antique but really rusted by means of. And considering the customer, Sportal resolved to provide it for what he paid out for it.

“It’s likely in the household, so that’s the most critical point,” Sportal claimed.
