This won't mean much to a lot of you, but I work for the company here in Iowa that provides the Iowa football team with the tractor trailer that hauls all the gears and other items to the games. The owner decided last fall that he wanted to have a model of the truck, and so here it is.........all the great detail, the mural behind the cab, the field on top of the trailer, its all there. It going to look cool with my other die cast tractors and trucks.

Does the real thing have the field on the top, too?

You do know that someday, someone bigger than you is going to post something like what he did above and you will need to do more than hide behind that Cat.  Just warning you.  :D

Cat being an Iowa native it only gets tough to pick between the hawkeys and cyclones when they are playing each other.

Yes the truck is an exact copy of the real one. The playing field, Mr Kinnicks airplane on the side, the mural of the stadium on the back of the cab, the company name, the trucks unit number, its all there. The only thing I know isn't there is the decals of the bowl games they been to. The truck and trailer are also exactly correct for yr and model,, a Kenworth and a Kentucky moving trailer.

I hear that!  We haven't had a car payment in a few years and I like it that way.  Guess if we do need another car we will be buying used.
