Long Description:
This particular local boy, is a tow truck. It'd been sitting and rusting away until one day a research crew from Pixar came through. Now this tow truck is famous. Or rather, is the inspiration for the world famous Tow Mater in Pixar's movie "Cars".

So, then four women came along with an idea. They purchased the rusty old truck (eventually they got word from Pixar that it is the truck they had found), and an old gas station and started remodeling the place.

Now "Tow Tater" has a nice place to stay and people come from all over just to say "Hi".

Here at this one location you'll find
1)a vintage gas station (business),
2)a movie location (entertainment),
3)a spot along the legendary Route 66 (history),
4)a roadside attraction (recreation),
5)a news article location (waymarking multifarious),
6)a wikipedia entry (technology - internet),
7)a pair of vintage gas pumps (technology - machines), and
8)a neon sign (listed in both categories)(signs)

Oh and across the street there's also an old ghost sign too!
