THE BEST OF TAT

Highlights from X Years of Having Fun and Saving Kids

2009

Touch A Truck - the first one, numero uno, TAT 1.0... You get the idea.

The perennial favorite trash truck!

What would Touch A Truck be without the Daily Disposal "clean" trash truck? They've been awesome supporters since the first year!

Del Mar Lifeguards

Trucks, boats, and lifeguards... who doesn't like?

Paint a Porsche?

A one-year-only occurrence, it was both fun and weird to be painting a Porsche!

Stormtroopers?

Also, an every-year tradition, the San Diego Star Wars Society make for plenty of photo opportunities!

2010

Whoa. From 300 to 2,500 attendees! Plus, Vintage funny cars, Navy Seals and U.S. Marines!

Drag 'chutes, 'nuff said.

One of the biggest names in drag racing, Don "The Snake" Prudhomme brought his beautiful 72 'Cuda and matching Dodge transport truck. You couldn't climb in the 'Cuda but for most kids and many dads, it was so cool to see up close! #Legend

U.S. Navy Seals and Marines Marsoc

Special forces from both the Navy and Marine Corp really outdid themselves in 2010. They set up "camp" at Touch A Truck and broke out some of their equipment for everyone to touch and carry!

Paint a face?

Who could resist getting camo-painted by one of our country's finest?

Pretty obvious for these two volunteers that this was the "best of" Touch A Truck ever... San Diego being what it is, there are a lot of celebrities that live here and sometimes they go out in public, especially for a good cause!

Miramar Fire Dept

Miramar Fire Dept brought out their trucks and hoses and helmets and... everything! The kids had a blast with these local heroes!

Motorcycle Alley

What started with a few Harley's expanded to more than a dozen bikes and trikes. Kids see them every day but rarely get to sit on them - that's the essence of Touch A Truck!

Hot Rods

We had a fine collection of hot rods in 2011 (both super-clean and "rat rods" like this one)

2012

Stadium. 5K. Robosaurus. Were we nuts?
