After the filming was finished the truck was hauled away to the junk yard.
My brother lived (still does) in the Wilmington, NC area when the movie
was made. A
man by the name of John Allison bought the head from a
junk yard that was across the road from his house called Silent Rick's Towing &
Salvage. He cut the head from the
hood, leaving part of the hood attached to it. He had to move and didn't have room to keep the head
so he contacted
the Wilmington Morning Star and they did this article about it.
My brother saw the article and called me and told me about it. I called John Allison and
a price was agreed upon so I went and got it. I've owned it since 1987.
That trip is a story in itself! I had a blast bringing it home.
Everyone that passed me was freaking out! Truck drivers were fighting for a
place beside my truck so they could get a better look and when I would stop
for gas it would take a half hour to get away from the crowd!!
To the right is a picture of the newspaper article.
If anyone has a better copy of this newspaper please let me know because
I would love to find a better copy.
