Mammoth Garbage Truck

A garbage truck dressed up as a wooly mammoth

I'm sure everyone at some time or another has envisioned some vehicles as animals.

Those front loading garbage trucks with the two "tusks" intrigue me the most. I think it'd be fun to dress these up as wooly mammoths. Nice big ivory-looking tusks to pick up the garbage bins, a thick coating of faux-fur to give that wooly look. A trunk would have to be added to the front. Fun/scary for small children to watch the mammoth eat a meal.

Maybe the back-loading garbage trucks could be made to look like Pac-Man.

       This sounds very much like Metalzoic, a comic series that appeared in 2000AD (see link) and that since has been collected into a graphic novel. It's not a criticism as the comic is a classic and it explores a fantastic future where machines have replaces plants, animals and men. In that series the "god-beast" is a huge robotic mammoth, complete with tusks that appears to have "evolved" from a petrol tanker. You might have some more ideas for this you read that comic first - it is a critically aclaimed.

       Another example I can think of (but can't find a pic for) is that dog-like vehicle the two guys from "Dumb and Dumber" drove. I loved those huge ears.
