Worlds Greatest Show Truck

Have you seen this truck? Ive seen it in magazines and on tv but last week end i got to see it in person at the World of Wheels car show in B'ham Al. This thing is amazing. You can stare at it for hours and not see all the details. The paint job alone cost $80,000. If it don't bring a tear to your eye your not american. The big rig he hauls it in is awsome too. I dont know how to add the link so here is the site Google heros show truck for more sites. while looking around for the site i also found this one that will make you cry ,if you human that is. you tube -hero new york- the first video of the guy painting.

Nice theme, for a trailer queen.

Re: Worlds Greatest Show Truck

Thanks for posting the picture Celtic. I havent learned how to do that yet. Yea Floordude its a $650,000.oo money pit not counting the big rig hauler but he is probably coming close to making it back. I think that shows pay him to come cuz its so popular a truck now. and he sells murchandise too. Kinda like monster trucks. I dont believe in trailer queens myself but this time i'll make an exception.

If it was mine, it would be covered in so much mud, muck and all manner of nasty stuf it would take a year to clean it.
I appreciate the sentiment but still don't it it. Its a truck, a tool. Kinda like a chrome Miter saw.... what the point. Just my Honest opinion
