DO YOU EVER WONDER, like I do, about the stories a vehicle could tell?
I suppose it’s the former news reporter in me or that natural curiosity I’ve always possessed that fuels my mind to frame questions.
How often did this truck travel, after bar closings, to tug a vehicle from a ditch near Montgomery, Minnesota?
And how many tragic scenes—shards of glass scattered across the highway, crushed metal, flashing lights—has this tow truck viewed?
Has this truck’s driver cursed when the phone rang in the wee hours of a brutal winter morning?
It appears, from the snow locking in and blanketing this truck, that it hasn’t moved in awhile from property along a residential street in Montgomery.
Is this tow truck the planned project of a restorer or simply abandoned, destined to rust away in this spot an alley away from a small town Minnesota city park?
