Old Rusty Tow Trucks Are Frightening

At the recent monthly swap meet I spotted a derelict looking, rusty wrecker. It instantly reminded me of the steampunk zombie apocalypse survival vehicle that we had talked about a couple of weeks ago, and it easily sucked me in for a closer look.  From every angle this thing was an absolute monster.  It had enough leaf springs to haul the heaviest of loads, enough steel to thwart off that nastiest zombies, a single headlight for creeping around, and perfect patina to keep things ugly.  If I didn’t have so many projects, I would have loved to have taken on a new toy like this.  No, I wouldn’t clean off any of the rust. I would just get the truck mechanically sound, and ride crusty.  Literally.  Who doesn’t need a classic wrecker in their driveway?   “You want to take the wrecker today?”  “You’re darn right I do.”
