Canadian Tire Truck Made From Ice Travels 2.5 MILES!!!


When I first looked at the above photo I thought that someone had sprayed water on this truck in extremely frigid weather so that it froze on contact ~ imagine my amazement to find out the following… be sure to watch the video and the behind the scene documentary – really interesting!

“If I Saw This Truck Going Down The Road, I’d Do A Double Take… Because It’s Simply Unbelievable.”

Canadian Tire built a truck made of 11 000 pounds of ice to prove how reliable the MotoMaster Eliminator Ultra Automotive Battery with AGM Technology is in the middle of winter. The MotoMaster Eliminator Ultra Battery with AGM was frozen to – 40 degrees celsius before being used to start the Ice Truck. The Canadian Tire Ice Truck not only started with the frozen battery but drove Paul and his son to Hockey Practice.

A Canadian ice sculpture company called Iceculture took on an incredible challenge recently. The result is pretty much unbelievable.

Canadian Tire, a battery company, wanted to showcase just how well their batteries hold up in the cold. The best way to do that? Build an 11,000+ pound, fully functional and driveable ice truck.

Every part of the truck that is not absolutely necessary for driving is made of ice.

It was built in extremely freezing temperatures.

There’s 11,000 pounds of ice. The total weight is more than 15,000 pounds.

The incredible “sculpture” was built on a 2005 Chevy Silverado frame.

And the best part? They drove it.

They drove it over 2.5 miles in total and submitted the feat to Guinness Book of World Records.

As stated, the truck was created to demonstrate how well Canadian Tire’s batteries hold up in the blistering cold Canadian winters.

The result was much more impressive than that.

Even the windshield is made of ice. Phenomenal work.
I guess the only depressing part to this is that they left it to melt after accomplishing what they wanted – that took 40 hours. I think, if I was capable of sculpting something like this, I would sadly watch it, drowning in my own sorrow… and cold water.
