MENOMONIE, Wisconsin — Brad Doane's family has spent three generations playing with Freightliners, Kenworths and Chevys, but it took 66 years for the boys at Irvington Garage Towing to finally make it official and welcome to their fleet an actual tow toy.

It's a life-size version of a Tonka Mighty Wrecker.

"You can't mistake what it is," smiles Brad. "'Dang, that looks like a Tonka truck.'"
