I didn’t know there was a towing and recovery hall of fame, but there it is in the place where first tow truck was built:
Did you know the first tow truck was built in Chattanooga in 1916? Did you know the fastest tow truck ran a timed lap of Talladega Superspeedway at 109 mph? And did you know there are more than 200 recovery names in the Hall of Fame? (Don’t be surprised if you don’t recognize any of them.)
Be prepared to hang around the museum much longer than you thought, admiring the rigs and impressive collection of tow truck toys, as well. Admission is $10 for adults (discounts available for AAA members), but be prepared to spend some time in the truck-themed gift shop at the end of the self-guided tour.
There are fascinating old tow trucks and lots of stories there – worth the visit for any truck fan!
