I hired a mover/hauler out of the paper today, and it was a real interesting experience. 
 
He showed up with 2 other guys in a real hillbilly truck.  He had an old truck fixed up with his own version of "forced air conditioning".  On the top of the cab, he had cut a hole and used an air conditioning duct as an air intake, then he cut a bigger hole and attached a wind turbine from a house as the air exhaust.  He said it works pretty good above 5 mph.  I've got to admit he was a real character and is a real hillbilly from Arkansas.  He said if you wanted to know more about him, just Google "Wichita Hillbilly" and there are several sites that refer to him.   He said today's truck is his work vehicle, just check out the real Wichita Hillbilly truck with the gorilla and bull horns on top here: 
 
 
I gotta admit he was the most interesting person I have ever met, and, even though he might seem like a nutcase, he was a really likeable, nice person.  You can see the pictures I took today of his "normal" truck and his idea of hood loovers.

That would certainly be a winner in the "Under Construction" class at the car shows!
