Truck made of ice goes into Guinness Book of World Records

By ,

In order to demonstrate the effectiveness of MotoMaster Eliminator batteries in extreme cold, Canadian Tire recently used one to power a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado built out of more than 11,000 pounds of ice in Hensall, Ontario.

The body, mirrors, grille, and licence plate were all made of ice. The truck managed to drive 1.6 kilometre at an average speed of 20 km/h in the city's streets.

The battery had previously been kept in a freezer at a temperature of -40 degrees Celsius, then fitted to the vehicle.

It will go into the Guinness Book of World Records as the ''first rolling ice structure.''
