Two 1970s Chevy Silverado pickup trucks thrive as one

| | ,

Eric Wright can’t drive far before people point, shout, make jokes and take pictures. Wright hasn’t done anything wrong. It’s just that most observers can’t figure out what’s going on when they view him in his truck on city streets, on the highway and in parking lots.

Is Wright driving on the wrong side of the road? Is he going against traffic? Or just what exactly is he doing is in his Chevy Silverado? Specifically, what is he doing in two 1970s Chevy Silverado pickup trucks, the cabs of which are advancing in opposite directions?

Eric Wright is either coming or going in his cutomized two vintage Chevy Silverado pickup trucks atrached as one.

Wright, who was seeking a truck to promote his business couldn’t find exactly what he wanted on eBay. But what he discovered was a truck made from nearly identical opposite-facing cabs. It was used as a marketing attraction but never driven. But now it is, and it’s perfectly legal.

Two Chevy Silverado pickup trucks as one

The truck was originally from Arizona. It had been built by a Chevy dealership and a GMC dealership and they used to park it in front of one or the other location to attract attention to the respective businesses.

While the truck has the same steering wheels, seats and liner and looks symmetrical, it can only be driven from one side. The engine is under the driver’s side of the truck; the trunk is located under the hood of the passenger’s side (back).

The truck has LED turn signals in front and large brake lights from a school bus in back.

The two-face truck has a vanity plate that reads “What The.” It’s a shortened version of the well-known phrase” “What The F***?” It’s what a DMV representative said when Wright first registered the vehicle.

“All I can say, is I just have more fun driving this than anything I’ve ever driven,” said Wright, who lives in Tyngsborough, Mass. “I drive this and I get my picture taken every two minutes. It’s pretty cool.”
