Ever Seen A Vehicle Made Entirely of Ice?

Why is this truck made out of ice? Well, it’s a long story, but here goes:

Canadian Tire had a mission: Prove its MotoMaster Eliminator battery could withstand being frozen to -40 degrees Fahrenheit and still start a vehicle. To do that, it utilized a 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500. But this isn’t your average pickup. Taking the concept a step further, Canada’s retail giant decided to strip the chassis bare and rebuild it using massive blocks of ice. With some incredible carving and ingenuity, the team created the Ice Truck — a fully drivable pickup made (almost) entirely from ice.

So, the company (Canadian Tire) went ahead with the process of making and driving an ice truck. But what I like is the attention to detail. Notice the real headlights, ice-carved decals and even an air freshener hanging from the rearview mirror. Once the ice truck was built, Canadian Tire succeeded in driving about one mile.

Here’s how they did it:

 

Here’s the cool look at how the truck melted:

    Too bad they could only use it once. It’s the perfect alternative to the snowmobile.

      It would have probably came from big ice blocks in a lake (since there’s a lot of lakes in Canada) and have been shipped to their company, so would have not been measured.
