The Grizzly Truck

In 1992 persons formerly affiliated with the venerable Pacific Truck company made 12 of the most durable, powerfull trucks known to man. I have seen the model shown in the picture tooling around town. The Grizzly is an impressive piece of machinery, somewhat larger than a classic hummer and twice as bad-ass the reality of this vehicle is hard to describe. These vehicles were made in North Vancouver, until they were not.

Where did this company go? Who owns it? What happend? Does anyone know? I imagine my self rumbling around logging roads impressing the chicks and intimidating the mack jackets. I want it. I want to make dozens of them and sell them to Californians bored of those whimpy H2s and measley sherman tanks.

Grrrrizzly!
