Chevy tough

Attention Chevrolet advertising executives: Frank Oresnik has a story for you.

Changing his oil every 3,000 miles and forking over for major-ticket repairs, the Medford, Wis., delivery driver said he expected to reach 1 million miles driven on the vehicle near the end of February by delivering seafood in three states since he bought the truck secondhand in 1996.
