For starters, I have no skin in this game. Just wanted to get that out of the way that I’m not hawking Hess Trucks (like they need our help?!) but rather pointing out the fact that this year’s version of the iconic rig is a pretty good one. My sons Tom and Jack have both gotten a Hess truck each year for Christmas. I’m thinking because this year’s includes a “funny car” it will be their favorite one yet.
Yeah, I know the look is not 100% spot on but they were reasonably close. The thing has zoomies and it even pulls wheelies. Hey, maybe Cruz Pedregon can get some sponsorship out of this deal because he is the undisputed king of the funny car wheelstand at this point.
Hess trucks have been a Christmas time staple for decades and the trucks have morphed and changed over the years but in my experience, even just scoring them for the last few years they are of high quality, have neat features, and they stand up to the beating that a couple of imaginative young guys can lay on them.
I’m thinking that there is going to be a sweet wheelie contest at the Lohnes household on Christmas morning in the hallway. Hopefully the track prep is good.
