Illustration for article titled UPS Truck Turns Over A Million Miles In 22 Years

The odometer on Bret Boyd's big brown 1987 GMC rolled over to show all zeros recently. It was just another routine day in the same vehicle he's been behind the wheel of for his 22 years — as a UPS driver in East Texas. During that time the truck has reportedly gone through at least three engines and been repainted the same number of times, though we suppose it's hard not to lose count. What makes the GMC's longevity even more admirable is not just that the truck has never been in an accident during all that time, but also that Boyd has declined a new replacement vehicle. He prefers to just stick with ol' reliable, saying the truck feels "like home... sitting in the recliner in your house." [DallasNews] (Thanks Travis!)
