Sporting the Tribal-Flamed Tradition

0-lead photo 63680By George L. Nitti

Owner Joe Calvagno of All County Towing in Freeport, New York, has continued to build on a tradition of sporting tribal-flamed themed tow trucks over the years.

"It's what I've always done from the start," he said. "I've just kept it going," suggesting that he would not be changing styles anytime in the near future.

The blue tribal flames found on their 2017 Kenworth T880/2016 Jerr-Dan 50/60 rotator are one of the key distinguishing features of this fresh-looking wrap, created by 32 Signs.

"The wraps are working for us," Calvagno said. "We used to custom paint our trucks, but now we are wrapping them. For resale of the truck, you can easily peel it off and if you have to replace part of the wrap because of damage, it's not a problem. Custom paint was time consuming."

While the tribal flames create accent and add zest to the design, All County's bright color scheme of blue, green and white stands out. It's a winning combination enhanced by the use of gradient patterns that give the unit a fresh design.

Large, white, reflective lettering spans the side of the rotator, clearly displaying the company name.

"That's the point," Calvagno said. "You want people to remember your name."

The two-year-old rotator is packed with many of Jerr-Dan's popular features, including the rotator's five-axle twin-steer.

Cavagno said the company was among the first in the industry to get the Jerr-Dan rotator on a twin-steer five-axle chassis.

LED lights cover it under the boom and truck.

Calvagno said they use the truck every day because "it runs good, tows good and works great. There is nothing better."
