     Sadly, my collection guys would just destroy it as fast as they could.  Unless, of course, one of the stoned scrappers grabbed first it thinking it was actually metal.

       Same here, it would only take 2 or 3 collections to look like it was in the Jawas’ Sandcrawler.

    Well, hmm… What if you offered to paint the trash truck to appear like a sandcrawler? 

    Sigh, they’ll never go for it.
