The Ice Truck

by Paul Strauss

While we’ve seen a model of a Porsche sculpted from ice, the guys at Canadian Tire have done them about 1,000 times better by building an actual truck out of ice. Yes, what you’re looking at here is a fully-functional pickup truck created from blocks of ice.

It was made with the help of the folks at Iceculture, to promote the MotoMaster Eliminator Ultra Automotive Battery to demonstrate how the battery can hold up to even the most extreme weather conditions. In fact, the truck and its battery were kept at a temperature of -40° C before it was started up and driven.

All told, the truck’s frame had about 14,000 pounds of ice loaded on top of it. When completed, it was used for a commercial shoot, then shipped back to Iceculture’s studio to be reassembled and driven one mile, prior to its final send-off – a 40 hour slow-melt captured (in reverse) in the video below:
