But a very old beat-down Ford truck coming out of the ocean as slowly as a 200-year-old giant turtle is clearly something else. Sure, we have seen the Blue Oval bet a fortune on rock crawling models, but it’s probably the first time we’re witnessing a Ford take up the battle with the naturally occurring minerals no matter what!
Especially since the said geological formations were probably deemed pretty safe from automotive interference, as they dwelled on a stretch of beach in Las Grutas, a resort located in the Argentine province of Río Negro, at the northern edge of Patagonia.
Anyways, we don’t have a lot of context behind the story that was recently shared by the ViralHog channel on YouTube. According to the description, some locals were on site to help rescue a Toyota Hilux that got stuck in the sand (!) when all of a sudden, everyone dropped their jaws at the sight of this mythical creature coming out of the sea.
Even though seeing any sort of vehicle crawl out of the ocean is enough to stop anyone in its tracks, this was a lot more shocking given the advanced state of decay of the vintage Ford truck.
There’s no grille, no hood, and the slow arrival was seemingly owed to a huge load of wood making it look as if someone did a very poor job of turning it into a bagged lowrider.
