My 1936 GMC Rat Rod Tow Truck at the Reynolds Alberta Museums "History Road" ca show on June 13 & 14 2009, they have these two giant Drag-link style excavators there that you can walk/drive right up to, so I had to go back with some friends from the show and take photos of our cars with them!
My Tow Truck is over 7 feet tall and it's dwarfed by these machines!
When you drive through west texas at night, all you see are distant street lights occasionally going by and it really feels like you're in deep space..if it wasn't for the tiny patch of asphalt beneath your vehicle you'd swear you were flying.
Vintage just adds cool points. I'd love seeing a machine that big sometime!
I love that sort of thing, and I live for road trips!
I get that flying trough space feeling when driving in a snow storm at night too... I have this thing about driving in inclimate wheather, I like it for some reason...
If you ever feel the need for a road trip, Alberta Canada has a lot to offer, the worlds largest mall, it's the only place other then Antartica that has no rats (we taxed them to death) and my area in central Alberta is very car oriented, everyone has vintage cars and trucks, lots of car shows, and lots of automotive and aeronautical museums.
Plus, every visitor gets a free monkey... FREE... I don't know where they get them, but they are just giving them away at the border, I swear! (bananas cost extra)
I flew there and drove/rode back. Drove the Al-Can down to Portland where I flew out again to get back to Cali. Once I get enough $$ and time (magic ingredients) I want to drive up and back in the Land Rover.
