Finally stopped and shot a few pics of this old Tow Truck that I have noticed for a few years located in Medicine Park, Oklahoma.
Equipped with a sling attached to the winch cable, which runs over a pulley mounted on the gin poles, state of the art in the days of cars with real bumpers! In these times with plastic bumper covers on all the cars, using this rig has become obsolete. Now everything is brought to the shop on a shiney, flat roll up bed truck. ( Just wondering.......is the word 'tow' still relevant?)
