It’s low. It’s menacing. It’s basically everything I have ever wanted.

2011 must be the year of the hotrod tow truck or something, because everywhere I go, I find myself surrounded by them.  They must see what I drive and just assume that I need help anytime I stop.  Anywho…  As promised last night, I have more pictures from the ungodly awesome Milltown show.  Tonight’s display of hotness is a hot rod wrecker of epic proportion.  It’s low.  It’s menacing.  It’s basically everything I have ever wanted.  After spending about 15-20 minutes staring at this truck from every angle, I can assure you that it is bigger and badder in person than it is in the photos.  Keep that in mind.

Also worth noting: Notice how all the people in the above picture are staring in different directions.  A strange moment in time no doubt!

 

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.”
