The owner of a 1991 Chevrolet Silverado that's traveled more than a million miles is parting with what he calls his "old girl."

Frank Oresnik says his pickup will go on sale Thursday night on eBay. The minimum bid is $30,000.

The 58-year-old northern Wisconsin man attracted attention in February when he reached the million-mile mark while doing a live interview on public radio.

He says that the truck has had four radiators, three gas tanks and five transmissions but that the engine is original.

He racked up much of the mileage delivering seafood from a Chicago supplier to Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan.

Oresnik says he hopes the buyer will display the truck.
