Deane Salter - West Covina car salesman sets a Guinness World Record

Deane Salter - West Covina car salesman sets a Guinness World Record

Deane Salter, 85, has had a company car ever since he became a car salesman — a profession he’s worked at probably longer than anyone.

And now, he has proof.

Salter was recognized this month by the Guinness Book of World Records for having the longest career as a car salesperson at 54 years and 4 months.

“I’m surprised, I didn’t even consider it,” he said. “It’s just time’s gone by fast, it’s been fun, and business has been good to me.”

Salter said he’s spent all those years working at Reynolds Buick GMC in West Covina. The dealership has been in the Reynolds family for 97 years.

Salter said the Guinness recognition came about after one of his co-workers asked how long he’d been working at Reynolds.

When he said “at least fifty years,” his co-workers began to do some snooping. They had to find a way to verify that Salter had been working as long as he said.

“They finally found a pay stub that verified it from my paycheck and that did it,” Salter said.

Salter said he’ll turn 86 in a couple weeks, but has no intention of cutting back his hours at the dealership.

He works every weekend as part of his full-time schedule. But, he said he still finds time to have fun. He just traveled for a week to Alaska with his wife, four of his five kids and their spouses.

Salter said he can still remember the first car — or truck, actually — he sold: a red pickup to a glass company in Azusa. However, he said he couldn’t tell you his favorite car he’s sold.

Telling you what his favorite thing is about going to work is much easier. It’s the people.

Scotland - World's oldest message in a bottle

World's oldest message in a bottle

Scotland -- A 97-year-old message in a bottle found by Scottish fishermen in their catch has set the world record for spending the longest time at sea.

Guinness World Records confirmed the April 12 discovery by the Shetland Islands fishing boat, the Scottish government in Edinburgh said Thursday.

"It was just a normal day and we were out fishing for monkfish," Andrew Leaper, 43, who skippered the boat, Copious, said in the government's prepared statement. "As we hauled in the nets, with a mixed catch of monks, megrim and cod, I spotted the bottle neck sticking out of the cod end of the net. I quickly grabbed the bottle before it fell back in the sea."

The bottle was released on June 10, 1914, by the Glasgow School of Navigation, one of a batch of 1,890 scientific research bottles designed to float close to the seabed. The location of the returned bottles allowed researchers to map the undercurrents of the seas around Scotland.

So far, 315 bottles have been found, each containing a note asking the finder to record the date and place of the discovery and return it for a reward of sixpence.
