the incredible American LaFrance custom car hauler has a 1962 Ferrari 250 GT 2+2 nestled in back.

The truck's owner, Gary Briggs, of Danville, California, said he had searched for a unique hauler to cart around vintage cars from his collection, but none of them seemed cool enough.

 He got together with master car builder Ben McClay, and they designed the huge hauler from the bones of a 1971 American LaFrance fire truck. “He built it, fabricating everything from the cab back,” Briggs said, noting that the Art Deco look of the past was “exactly what I was going for.”

  1. WOW, That is fantastic, I wish I had pockets deep enough to make an offer on that even if it is not for sale . Great colors, great imagination, great fabrication. That would be the hit of the show at the biggest caffine and octane show in America, Perimeter mall, Atlanta.
