So I’m guessing this is either what meat trucks looked like in Japan at some point, or what someone in Japan thought meat trucks looked like in the United States. Either way, it’s a pretty cool meat truck.

    A) I would love to own a meat truck. B) The wraparound bumper on that thing is killing me. C) It looks somewhere between a Police bus and an ambulance with a milkman as a driver.

      yes, they’ve boldly left very little room for one to mistake that the contents of this particular truck would be anything other than “meat.”

    Mark I love this! Pretty cool I agree!!
    A couple questions-is it metal or plastic? About how big is it? Where did you find it because if it’s Japan, I want my pilot buddy that flies to Narita to get me one.

    Allee I’m with you that bumper is hilarious.

    Mark this reminds me of a wind-up car my grandma had that was metal. God I wish I had it now. It was a metal post war design (think ’48 Chrysler) and once you wound it up it would go round and round. Through a garage on one end of the loop (no track, it was just designed to go in circles.) The garage had swivel doors on both sides and it would actually drive in one door and out the other. All bright yellow. I’ll check to see who has it now, a cousin I’m guessing.

      hey mark, it’s metal and the wrap around bumper is plastic. it’s about 3 1/4″ long and 1 1/4″ wide. it’s got a bit of a wonky rev-up mechanism that gives it a little bit of forward momentum when you push it. i haven’t the faintest clue where i found it, as i’ve had it for ages – i’m pretty sure i got it in the u.s. though, probably at a thrift store or garage sale…

      i’d like to see that wind-up car – start tracking ‘er down!

      and happy 4th weekend!

    Same to you Mark!

    and the same to all of my AWMOK friends!

    Let us all be mindful of the redneck phrase that when coupled with booze, cars, and fireworks, can change the whole weekend….”Watch this!!”
