Like most kids, Brad Doane collected and played with numerous Tonka toy trucks. Today, Brad Doane decided to pay homage to his favorite childhood toy and turn his Chevy pick-up truck into a life-sized replica of Mighty Tonka Wrecker Tow Truck toy.

Even the inside of the life-size Tonka truck is identical to the toy, right down to the steering wheel. Stats for Life-Size Toy Trucks Trending: Older & Chilly
