To The L.L. Bean Bootmobile And Step On It!
"Batman has the Batmobile, Oscar Meyer has the Weinermobile it only makes sense that L.L. Bean is bringing us the Bootmobile.
The Maine-based outdoor outfitter is marking their centennial this year, and theyre celebrating by driving a giant boot-shaped truck through Times Square and lacing er, racing it through the streets of Manhattan.
From the trademark windows, green gas cap and tiny wheels, the Bootmobile appears to be cobbled together from a diesel Ford F-250 pickup. (Its an automatic, so no heel-and-toe downshifts.) In true Yankee fashion, its wearing all-terrain tires, sports a Maine license plate and is missing a hubcap. It also has no trunk to speak of, which is sure to confuse the heck out of British tourists."
