Mr. Ngo Loc – residing in group 9, Phu Cuong ward, Thu Dau Mot city, Binh Duong province – said: “About 30 years ago, I bought a vintage car from Mr. X. I used it for many years under the previous owner’s name. In 1997, I changed the registration certificate to my name.”
For nearly 30 years, the car went from white to red. Mr. Loc regularly used the car and it became a familiar companion for him.

During events such as the championship of the Vietnamese U23 football team, or when Binh Duong Football Club wins a tournament, or during festivals, holidays, and summer festivals… Mr. Loc takes the car to cheer and celebrate on the streets.
The old and worn-out car has carried the former Chairman of Song Be province during a parade, as well as several beauty queens, actors, and beauties… who have taken many photos next to this “legendary” dilapidated car of Mr. Loc.
Especially, because he used to work for Song Be (former) and Binh Duong Newspaper as a reporter, Mr. Loc often used the car to take many colleagues for field trips to various provinces and cities in the Southeast region…

Recently, the son of the previous owner of the car expressed admiration for Mr. Loc’s careful preservation and use of the car for nearly 30 years, and he suggested buying it back from Mr. Loc to keep it as a memento of his beloved father. However, despite the fond memories and the car’s journey over nearly 30 years, Mr. Ngo Loc happily agreed to hand the car back to its previous owner.
