Even though we saw a Dodge truck just a couple weeks back, it's been much longer since we saw our last Dodge pickup. That means it's time for us to feast our eyes on this industrial-strength Power Wagon. The grille design means it's either a '70 or a '71, but once again I'm (mildly) ashamed to admit I can't figure out the exact year of a DOTS vehicle. Power Wagon experts, fill in the blanks!

In any case, this is one of the last of the original American Power Wagons. What a name: Power Wagon! Too bad there's no reactor in the bed, because then it could be the Nuclear Power Wagon.

This truck lives on the island's East End, in a parking-challenged neighborhood, and it's clearly someone's daily driver. Must be fun parallel-parking this brute!

Sure, it gets 8 MPG and the ride feels like a shopping cart in a rock quarry, but the driver of this truck can snort in derision at drivers of luxurious modern pickups.

See why I heart Jalopnik? This DOTS Truck series has been extra great. Look at all the real trucks Murilee has brought to us... and this one, wow. Love the matt paint, the rugged bumpers, the mean looking black rims. This is the embodiment of testosterone. Look at it, take it in, then look at what the pickup has become today.
