Which is a better job a car salesman or a truck driver?

I think you have to be 21 to be a truck driver though so Im thinking about trying to get a job as a car salesman for a couple of years (Im only 19) and then save a little money and try to become a truck driver. Also what are the best trucking companies and best places to sell cars. All the information possible is appreciated.
