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 they’re 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. (It’s an automatic, so no heel-and-toe downshifts.) In true Yankee fashion, it’s 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."

How can you have a bootmobile without a Boot?

Boot is what the Brits call our trunk.
