The Prodigal Cool Old Pickup Truck

The cool old pickup truck has been found, on East 12th Street!

The last time it was seen was March 2, after spending a month unmoved from its parking spot on St. Mark's Place! Speculation ran high after that, that its owner had packed up and moved out of the East Village. But here it is again:

The strange thing is that I found myself on 12th Street quite by accident; I even thought to myself "What am I doing here? There's nothing down here." And then, voila!

As you might expect, it has a couple of stylish, new accoutrements, like this rooster crest hanging from the rearview mirror:

Also, the last time it was seen, it was sporting a red seat cover. That's gone now, and contrasting seat belts have been added:

East Villagers are delighted at the return of the cool old pickup truck, if in fact it was ever really gone. If slaughtering a fatted calf were legal, it would be done. Instead, I'm just going to have a cheeseburger tomorrow for lunch!

  1. thanks for the update, EVT! i have been wondering what happened to this puppy!

    :-) it looks like it's been driven hard and put away dirty. :-)


  2. Truck injury lawyers also understand the trauma faced by victims of truck accidents and help them to access funds to pay their medical bills and for upkeep during the time of recuperation. Twitter
