When it comes to odd cars, we thought we’ve seen it all: Camaros made to look like a Lamborghini, box trucks approaching a million miles on the odometer, and blasphemizingly-donked Camaros, just to name a few. What we haven’t seen is a vehicle made (almost) entirely out of ice… until now.
Created for an upcoming commercial for retail firm Canadian Tire due to air in January, this ice truck isn’t just for show, because it’s actually drivable. The cool truck (pun fully intended) is based on a 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500 Heavy Duty frame (regular cab, long box) from Florida (rust-free for the win!). A member of the Tahoe-Yukon Forum painted the chassis black, the driveline and exhaust silver, mounted the tires. After that, someone else made it into an ice truck.
After it was no longer needed, the ice sculpture on wheels was melted down… in a very surreal kind of meltdown.
The GM Authority Take
Creative and unique. Well done, Canadian Tire and partners. Well done, indeed.
