I love the dump truck -- whoever thought that one up was a genius!

The dump truck in Sacramento is just a shiny copy of the REAL DUMP TRUCK owned by Carry_Okie:
Ever heard of Dick Tuck?
As Nixon's political star began to rise, Tuck continued to torment him. In 1956 Nixon was running for reelection as Eisenhower's Vice President. The Republican Convention was being held in San Francisco that year, and Tuck learned that the route taken by garbage trucks going to the dump led them right past the convention center. Therefore, Tuck paid to have all the garbage trucks bear signs that read "Dump Nixon".
