Remember When! Did You Notice That Cute Car on the Roof in Bayville, NJ
That car on the roof, it's one of the coolest things I have ever seen.
If you've never seen the adorable fiat, I believe that's the make of the car, on Cosmo's. Wait, I'm hearing it was once a Volkswagen bug? I didn't even realize it's a tow truck.
According to roadsideamerica.com, it's a 1950 Fiat Tow Truck. So funny of all the attractions around the country, Bayville gets on the list with this little Fiat on the roof, Bud - the dinosaur, and the giant bottle on Rt. 9. Bayville, we're famous.
It's cool on their website they give this information if you're out of town and want to visit. Bayville, we're famous.

It's funny something we see every day, people just want to see it. Do you remember when the first time you saw the car was? I have friends that lived here all their life and have always seen that car.
So many of you also use it as a form of direction. When you see the car on the roof on Rt. 9, you're close to my house. Or, did you pass the car on the roof, yet?
I remember driving Rt. 9 through Bayville for the first time going to the Bayville WOBM Studios. I took pictures, I actually stopped at the auto place and took pictures, I had no idea what it was, but I knew my Dad would love to see it. When I moved to Bayville about 12 years ago, he always knew when he was close to my house when he'd see that car on the roof. It holds a special place in my heart because I knew my Dad loved it.
Do you remember seeing that cute car? I want to hear those memories or do you drive by it every day and not even think about it.
