You truly have not seen everything in the world of ego-driven Angeleno bloatwagons until you’ve seen one of these fat bastards on the road.
I ran into one similar in Death Valley last year owned by a couple who claimed never to even haul anything with theirs other than a camp trailer and their poodle. For scale, check the puny Mustang cowering in its shadow. I don’t even want to contemplate how many tax dollars are being spent right now defending the owner’s right to buy enough fuel to drive it.
My good friend Lee emailed me this image. His notes after the jump …
As a truck guy, I was impressed with the sheer ballsiness. But as a human, I gotta give it an environmental “ewww…”
I saw this International MXT pickup at a gas station in Culver City…
The sucker weighs 10,000 pounds and is almost 8 feet tall. I love the part of the copy that says it might be hard to park in most garages. This was MXT #8, and the factory guy said “it gulps a lot of diesel…”
Gee, ya think!?
Feel free to post about it and to use my photo. Sorry I didn’t get a human next to it for scale, but he was in a hurry to drive over things, I guess.
