Well, when I walked in there, the snow fell of my boots, and when it hit the concrete, it didnt melt

I had a big furnace in there last year, and I burned lots of waste oil, of every type, but I got rid of it cause I ran out of room.
Time for a new garage, I suppose.

I like where this build is going. This is the kinda truck you would find in a horror movie chasing you down a dark road!
