The "Million Mile Chevy"
In March 2011 I was crossing the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge and noticed that the odometer on Red, my 1968 Chevy truck, registered 1,000,000 miles! How did it get all those miles on it?
I started City Sheet Metal Works in San Francisco in 1976, and for about 15 years the truck was the only vehicle I owned - and I used it for everything. For over 40 years the truck got me to Aspen, Jackson Hole, Vail, Lake Tahoe and Mammoth Mountain - and probably a dozen other ski resorts and winter destinations in the western states. In 1999, Red made it as far as a Packard automobile festival in Ohio, which also upped the mileage.
I bought my truck from my boss at Robert J. Neilan Sheet Metal Works in 1972, when I was an apprentice there. Bob commuted from Marin County every day and drove the truck around San Francisco. The truck had 132,000 miles on it when I purchased it, and it has had five motors since it was new. Bob lost the first one - a 307-cubic inch - at 28,000 miles, and GM gave him a new one that was tired when I got it. Over a weekend I installed a 327 from a wreck, and that was good for the next 12 years.
