The guy apparently likes 1940’s Chevy pickup truck styling.

Four spares and probably no way in hell that anything less than four people could change one without a crane.

Even though it looks like that guy is wearing a Tyvek suit (he's not) why do I feel like he'll never be changing a flat by himself?
That's a lot of oil $$$ there and somehow I feel like I may have contributed to it's build at the pump.
Pretty amazing though.

Before they were called SUV's and "I've got the the Largest SUV" and so on...

Go back to 1939, Admiral Byrd and an expedition long forgotten, "The Snow Cruiser".
Good video of various vehicles built to conquer Antartica with this one perhaps being the largest & strangest.
To me the fact that it traveled/drove over 1000 miles from it's factory in the Midwest to the Boston docks is even more amazing than it ultimate demise. Don't show to the Sheik:
