Tanker Thursday: Peterbuilt tanker truck

Illustration for article titled Tanker Thursday: Peterbuilt tanker truck

This Peterbuilt tanker truck is from my childhood collection. It's been around long enough, that I can't remember not having it. I feel like I use to have two of them, but now it's just the one. It is in rather good shape, which is impressive given the mileage I put on this beast. And I do mean beast, this thing is seriously heavy. If you whip this at somebody's head, you'll do some real damage!

My only gripe with it, is it doesn't roll very well. As a child of the 80's, this seemed to be a problem with a lot of the Hot Wheels I had at the time. I was more of a Matchbox guy as a kid, because they had suspensions and axles that could stand up to my abuse. 80's Hot Wheels? Not so much. Having read a bit of Hot Wheels company history, I now know that my childhood was not good times for Hot Wheels.
