“The Toy” Rolls on the Fourth of JulyJun 29th, 2012 | By Editorial Staff | Category: Spotlight
The owner, Jimmy Southers, who also owns Auto Towing & Repair of Lexington, will drive the truck and serve as the parade grand marshall. “The Toy”, nicknamed by Jimmy’s son Edward, was originally built and used by the military. After its retirement, Southers purchased it from the Virginia Transportation Museum around 1995.
The Toy is a tribute to military veterans, and a perfect truck roll out when we salute the red, white and blue.
Look for this truck, and insight on its history, in an upcoming issue of Tow Times.
