You think your commute is rough? After his car stopped working over 10 years ago, James Robertson has walked 21 miles each day to get to his factory job outside of Detroit.
When his story of incredible perseverance went viral, 13,000 people crowdfunded $350,000 to help him eliminate his daily 12-hour marathon commute.
But now that a local dealer has given him his dream car, a Ford Taurus that he says is much like himself (“simple on the outside and strong on the inside”), Robertson has gas money to get to work every day. And take a much-deserved road trip.
