A Pick Up Truck Bed big Enough for “Too Tall” Jones

I remember seeing this ad in an old magazine as a kid and it captured my imagination. Not because of the long truck bed, but because I thought about how magical it would be to lay down flat in the back of an open air vehicle, zipping down the highway, relaxed and staring at the clouds. I was eventually able to live this particular dream and it does not live up to expectations. Roads are not always flat, especially once your friend who is driving the truck realizes he can throw you around in the back. What should have been a magical calming ride turned into a miserable torture session. Damn you “Too Tall!”
