Video of the day | Canada built a fully featured ice pick


While the eastern part of Canada is experiencing one of the worst ice storms in history (de-energized for a total of more than 350 million homes and 5 people were killed), the idea of ​​ice machine may seem evil ironic joke. However, Canadian companies and Canadian Tire Iceculture before the storm came up and built a real, fully functioning truck from this frozen liquid.

It should be noted that along with the ” Lego car “, this SUV ice occupies the top slot on the list of the most unique vehicles created in 2013 year. Ice truck is based on a 2500 Chevy Silverado pickup HD 2005 release, last very long and laborious process of transformation with the help of engineers from the Bronson Line Automotive Ltd, Pick Me Productions and designers Iceculture.



GVW pickup ice is 6803 pounds, of which there are only 4989 pounds on the ice. And believe me, the guys made a tremendous effort to ensure that this monster of frozen water was the most visually similar to its original model. In Texas, where I came from a car company Bronson Automotive it completely disassembled by removing the cab and body, then underestimated clearance and extended engine compartment. Then the car was sent to Ontario, where a team of engineers Pick Me Productions has developed and is welded to the base of a special steel structure for mounting the ice blocks. Iceculture then had three times cut ice blocks to set them as a body, and further survey vehicle for advertising purposes.



To avoid sharp melting ice blocks in front of the car, where the engine creators have considered several options on how to remove heat from the ice components. It was decided that the best way out is to install special additional fans that will dissipate heat and help maintain the integrity of the frozen structure. All items for this problem were made by hand.

In the end it turned out that for the advertising campaign for the company Canadian Tire creators had to collect a few icy bodies. One truck was used as a prototype, the second – the partners showed Canadian Tire, and the third working model – show clients.



After shooting advertising working model pickup again dismantled and sent to the studio Iceculture, located in Ontario. The team was on it’s 24 hours, some of which they spent on the 1.6-kilometer test drive and at the same time make an attempt to open a new category of records in the Guinness Book of Records. After that, the truck was taken back to the store and left defrosting which lasted more than 40 hours.



Infomercial with ice car will show during the broadcast of the Canadian Hockey League NHL Hockey Classic. And while you have the opportunity to look at the process of melting the ice truck.
