Old Ford Car With an Inflated Ego.jpg


Old Car With an Inflated Ego!! The vehicle in this photo from the winter of 1940 might have been the first monster truck! The Ford Model A body was put on a Model AA truck frame with airplane tires installed. The guy leaning forward is my brother Eugene Myers, who was on leave from the Navy. Our dad put this modified Ford together to handle the snow on his rural mail route around Fullerton, Nebraska, and there was a lot of snow in the 1930s and '40s. Dad said the Ford would run over anything, but it was so high that the wind sometimes would blow it off the road.
