Everyone knows someone who lives in their car, right? Figuratively, that is. The floor is covered with food wrappers. Articles of clothing across the backseat. Camping utensils from last summer in the trunk. And bits of lunches from long ago under the seats.
That’s nothing! John DelVecchio, a 25-year-old Army veteran, lived in a 2009 Mustang for 11 days, and we mean lived in it! A Philadelphia-based radio station, 94WYSP-FM, conducted a promotion called “Live in It and Win.” The station had listeners vote online to pick the winner from those who had lived in it the longest. John was one of three who stuck it out, and was selected by the listeners to win the car. Participants were allowed 15-minute breaks every three hours, but think about…11 days!!
