Last Call: Tugboat Annie Edition

Tugboat-Annie-FS Miller Motors was a DeSoto and Plymouth Distributor located in Mankato, MN which is just outside of Minneapolis. According to The Old Motor, the company started in 1927 doing auto repairs. They are still in business today as a Continental Tire store and oil change shop, however probably not as cool as they once were. At least not Tugboat Annie cool. The wrecker was commissioned by Miller Motors in 1937 as an iconic emblem of their business and started out as a cab-over International. If only today’s tow trucks were as awesome or had their own names. Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day.  It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged. Image: The Old Motor
