We've seen some pretty impressive ice sculptures from all over, but this is the first one that moves under its own steam. Or gasoline, actually. The truck was made from 11,000 pounds of ice, sculpted and set over a regular truck chassis. It was a stunt from Canadian Tire to demonstrate how their Eliminator battery could start even in the coldest temperatures. The truck was driven 1.6 kilometers (a mile) at about 20 mph km/h in December 12th. I guess this is what they mean when they say "Cool ride!"
