Domino's Triton No. 1


the plaque in front of the car. It reads, “Triton No 1. Experimental Pizza Car. Presented to Famous Pioneer Auto Show, Murdo So. Dak. by Tom Monaghan, founder of Dominoes"


In 1985: Domino’s envisioned the future with the Triton No. 1, an experimental pizza-delivery vehicle. Unfortunately, a quarter century later, we still have pot holes. So this particular future went straight to a museum in South Dakota.

    1. WOW! Thanks! This is so far back in the archives (all 2 months) that when I saw the comment I had to think about what in the world it referred to! Sure appreciate the note!

  2. There was a Tritan sighting in northern Virginia a couple years ago. Barn find, on display, maybe at Lien lot or something similar, then sold. Any ideas how to find it? I just want to know what the last 5 numbers on the VIN tag are. There are 4 missing.

    1. Darned if I know.... I only just learned about the #1 a couple months ago, and there wasn't any mention of more existing. I just learned that #10 was in Tupelo today, and that tell you how rare they ever pop up in any context at all... and this is all I do, cars! Goofy and rare as they may be, they are in my zone, and I only just learned they were ever made...
