"All I Want For Christmas Is..." A Hess Truck!

by Stanely Stuyvesant · December 24, 2008

Remember the good old days when the biggest thing in the world was getting a Hess truck for Christmas?  According to wikipedia, in 1964 Hess gas stations started selling toy trucks around Christmas time, changing the model each year.  These trucks have become quite the collectors items with 1964 rigs fetching anywhere between $1,400 and $2,000 dollars.

If you can't make it to a Hess station this year, you might be able to find one of them hanging on the ceiling of the 21 club.  Another fun fact while we're at it, the only president to not eat at the 21 club since FDR is George Dubya.  He still has a few more weeks!
