Taco Truck Leaving Idaho

One of my taco truck operatives (TTOs) discovered this truck as it was being shipped to Washington. It's a shame; it has a lot of character. Would that a truck like this would park semi-permanently in downtown Boise.

This taco truck is an International Harvester Metro Van. IH made these from 1938 - 1975. The body was built in Bridgeport Connecticut as was my friend Rick Pinchera. Since I am talking history it seems appropriate to bring up a war story; history is full of war stories. One of the first Metro Vans was sold to the Czechoslovakian Army and destroyed by the Nazis during WWII. The Nazis went on to destroy a bunch of other stuff after that.

If you are interested in a new Metro Van it was re-issued in 2000 by Navistar.
