Pickup Made From Ice - You Can Drive It Too

This ice truck is a really cool PR stunt.

Billed as the world’s first self-propelled ice sculpture ever, the truck uses around 11,000 pounds of ice. The ice is chiseled and placed around a truck chassis complete with engine and electrical systems. Adding to the coolness of the truck, the builders filmed the whole thing and drove it 1.6 kilometers at about 20 km/h on December 12, 2013.

Sadly, the truck has since melted.

    Sooo …. It went 1.6 km (about a mile) and melted down.
    That puts it in about the same class as Dodge transmissions and Ecoboast engines.
