Arkanaut: A stationary pizza truck would be kinda pointless, no?
JarJar: WTF"Error establishing a database connection"
Cybernetic: Link is well and truly farked.
Abe Vigoda's Ghost: Cybernetic: Link is well and truly farked.[i46.tinypic.com image 600x450][i49.tinypic.com image 600x399]Del Popolo, meaning "of the people," is a food truck crafted from a massive Freightliner M2 turned mobile pizzeria. The diesel is a gourmet behemoth with glass windows covering an entire side of the truck, enabling passerby to gaze into the sleek interior. The inside features a 5,000 lb Stefano Ferrara brick oven and the smell of freshly-made dough baking fills the air as customers wait for a slice of the famous pizza.The owner, Jon Darsky, hails from New York and sources his organic ingredients from small family-run Italian producers.
Running Block: First off, it's Freightliner, and b) they didn't gut it. The truck is still a Freightliner. It still has all of its components. They modified the load area, which may have been empty to begin with, or may have had a hollowed cargo space all ready. All they did was add an oven./don't look at me before I've finished my coffee
Dynascape: ...as someone who works at a trucking company, we can safely assume the Pizza Freightliner probably breaks down after 50 miles, and needs a new fuel pump every week.
Abe Vigoda's Ghost: Arkanaut: A stationary pizza truck would be kinda pointless, no?I would hate having to run next to a moving truck to get my pizza. I would hope at some point it is stationary.
Speaker2Animals: JarJar: WTF"Error establishing a database connection"Yup -- we farked it.
phaseolus: This is cool and all, but I'm wondering about his business plan. Is there a shortage of places to buy a slice of pizza in NYC? Or is this guy just "hailing from" NYC and planning on operating the truck somewhere else?
JohnCarter: I can see about 50 health code violations, numerous DOT issues, and not doubt some ADA problems.Great idea and concept, one which not survive a meeting with GovCO
Egoy3k: You can't 'gut' something that is already empty.
oldfarthenry: PUH! I have a similar coffee-maker in my car:[i1151.photobucket.com image 850x561]
Hopman: This truck gives a whole new spin to "pizza delivery."
cevarius: I'm a bit biased as I helped with refitting the first truck and fabrication and construction of the second truck, but I think this is classier:[i.imgur.com image 720x540][i.imgur.com image 719x457]1949 Studebaker firetruck and 1952 Studebaker farmtruck, original Big 6 engines, only modification to the completely original engine/drivetrains are overdrive units to help with the weight. Both with woodfire brick ovens built into the truck.A third truck is under construction - a 1955 Studebaker step van prototype, the only one ever built.The Rolling Stonebaker
