Fords Tonka Trucks...

Haha this is so cool...

Ford highlights new F-650 and F-750 with full-size Tonka show truck [w/videos]

Quote:
Revealed at the NTEA Work Truck Show this week in Indianapolis, this Tonka show truck stands nearly 10 feet tall. It's painted bright yellow, just like the one you played with in the sand box (and probably still would given the opportunity and maybe no one else looking) and has a blacked-out nose treatment and special graphics. As you can see, it's also equipped with a working dump bed, and has a truly staggering 33,000-pound gross vehicle weight rating, built to showcase the Blue Oval's new line of medium duty trucks.

Of course "medium duty" is a relative term, and the new F-750 is clearly a heavier piece of machinery than the company's own Super Duty pickups, but they're lighter-duty than a proper big rig. The new 2016 Ford F-650 and F-750 are just as tough as the models they replace, but they're now quieter and more comfortable to use. In fact, Ford says its 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel is now 25-percent quieter inside the cabin at highway speeds, 45-percent quieter at idle and 35-percent quieter standing outside in front of the grille.

If I were a young kid again it would be pretty cool to see a full size Tonka truck.

They should get Tonka and Hot Wheels to create concepts for the Gran Turismo games. I would be interested to see what they come up with.

Yea. Don't they put all sorts of cars in the game, not just race cars? There are minivans and regular sedans and such. Why not a Tonka truck? I'm sure that Tonka would take the project seriously and come up with something interesting.

I think the answer is evident

Okay but that is a toy. This all started because of this truck. Think something more along those lines.



Maybe Tonka isn't quite right, but Hot Wheels? THat could definitely happen.

Hot Wheels is much more likely than Tonka, Tonka will only happen in your dreams.
