75,000 pounds of sand, several days, professional equipment and even some authentic truck parts went into the design of the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 sand truck. It’s construction was for the U.S. Sand Sculpting Championship in San Diego, California. What’s the point, you ask? Sometimes there is none, but in this case, it has to do with Southern California being the nation’s number one sales spot for small and mid-sized trucks. Other states, like Colorado itself, are also major consumers.
