World's Largest Tow Truck Parade

In a bid to create a New World Record for 'Largest Tow Truck Parade'. 292 tow trucks rumbled through New York City on Saturday, September 20, 2008. The previous world record was set in Wenatchee, Wash., in 2004, with a total of 83 trucks.

The parade, that was organized by the Metropolitan New York Towing Association, included flatbeds, wreckers and 50-ton rotators. The tow trucks started from the Shea Stadium in Queens and cruised down a couple of highways before finishing at the small historic airport in Gateway National Park in Brooklyn.

The above picture provided by the Metropolitan New York Towing Association, shows the tow trucks forming "New York" in the abandoned airport tarmac.
