That car on the roof, it's one of the coolest things I have ever seen.

I knew it would be back, it left for a while for a make-over.

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 was a tow truck.

According to, 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. It's cool and on their website, they give this information if you're out of town and want to visit.

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? 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?

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
