Hollywood veteran Mark Harmon was spotted picking up a vintage truck as he stepped out in Los Angeles just weeks before his 70th birthday.
The NCIS star, who plays special agent Leroy Gibbs on the hit CBS show, was pictured at a garage in the San Fernando Valley last week after being dropped off by his wife of 34 years, Mork & Mindy actress Pam Dawber, 69.
While the actor, who is reported to make a whopping $525,000 per episode, could certainly afford a snazzy set of wheels, he appears to have a more low-key style, preferring the classics.
The 69-year-old, who turns 70 on September 2, was seen inspecting a white, vintage Ford F-250 pickup truck before getting in and speeding off.

He added to his down-to-earth charm as he arrived in a baggy checkered shirt, khaki style pants, and sneakers.
The outing comes as Harmon is set to reprise his role in the long-running police procedural series in its upcoming 19th season premiering in September.
The action drama has been ranked as TV’s most watched series and attracts an average of 12 million viewers per episode.
But plans to renew NCIS had been up in the air for months following reports in February that Harmon intended to leave his role.
After playing the lead character for 18 years, the actor was reportedly planning to retire from the show.
CBS told Harmon and the executive producer they would likely cancel the series if he left, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The actor then started negotiations to return, though it’s unclear whether he will come back full-time or appear in a limited number of episodes.
In June, it was announced Katrina Law and Gary Cole had signed on to star as series regulars in the new season following the departure of Emily Wickersham, who played NCIS Special Agent Eleanor Bishop.
Although he has agreed to return this season, Harmon is reported to have a severely diminished presence and said to appear in just a handful of episodes as Special Agent Gibbs. Staying on: The hit CBS show NCIS has been renewed for a 19th season with star Mark Harmon returning as Leroy Jethro Gibbs. From the show’s 14th season in 2016
