Power Wagon Turned Planter

Time for your daily dose of derelict trucks rusting in their final resting place.

This dead Dodge was spotted near Waverly, Ohio in 2006. That badass winch caught my attention right away, and the front bumper looks big enough to park a rocking chair on and enjoy a view of the sunset from Anytown, USA.

If the "Pitch In" sticker didn't look years younger than the truck's last parking job I'd say this might be a former municipal machine. The tread pattern on those tires looks archaic, or military. Anyone have a guess at the purpose of this truck and the year it was built in?

Rust In Peace is a daily feature on Truck Yeah! that takes a moment to respect retired trucks as they return to the Earth. If you've seen one you think we should share, drop a note totips@jalopnik.com!
