The 9-11 Tribute to America Truck was built starting 3 weeks after the dreadful day that we will never forget in New York City. The creator of the 911 Tribute To America Truck Anthony Pristera was a New York Fire Fighter who took the truck to ground zero after completion in 2002 and was given the key to New York City from Rudolph Guilliani and Governor Pataki.
Anthony's 9-11 Tribute to America Truck was not only seen at Ground Zero but also made the front cover of 7 national magazines, it took first place in numberous custom car shows in Florida, and can be seen in the movie 2 Fast 2 Furious. Anthony says just the air brush paint on the truck covering it from head lights to tail lights was over $64,000. Anthony stated that the truck upon completion totaled close to 1/4 million dollars.
Today Anthony Pristera's Tribute To America Truck can be seen at Carville's Auto Mart in Grand Junction, Co. Here it is used to honor our military and veterans and helps with local fundraising events like the Community Food Bank by being present across the grand valley. During the 2016 Colorado Mesa University Homecoming Parade Kris "Tanto" Paronto former US Army Ranger Hero of Benghazi's Libya Attack and co-author of the best selling book "13 Hours in Benghazi" led the parade in the Carville's Auto Mart Tribute to America Truck and did a live feed speaking of the Patriotism that this community brings and what this truck represents. The Tribute Truck can also be seen every December in the Parade of Lights with our Military Forces marching down Main St in Grand Junction, Co. Stop by Carville's Auto Mart to show your patriotism and pay tribute to this remarkable symbol of our American History.
