I was thinking they would want it to park in the lobby of headquarters to show how badass their trucks are. All that shit melted and it STILL got in and out of there.

I wouldn't pay a nickle for what's left of that truck after insurance payed to fix it.
IMHO it simply wouldn't be safe on the road due to visually undetectable hidden heat damage.

All that melted plastic.
If he'd been in a '65 Ford F-100, you'd never have known it had been run through a forest fire at all...

Just an update on this. The burned truck is at the Toyota Headquarters in Dallas. More than likely will go into their museum after the engineers finish taking all the data required.

Dang, talk about Negative Nelly. You must be fun at parties.

It was kindof, just a lot more localized.
