You’ve seen rotisseries…
And you’ve seen trucks…
But have you ever seen a rotisserie truck?
Mac’s Custom Tie-Downs out of Sagle, Idaho pulled off a stunt like no other at this week’s Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. As the “latest and greatest demonstration” of its product, the company strapped a pristine 1935 Ford pickup onto a raised rotating platform using only Mac’s USA-made wheel nets.
The 2,400 pound, old school hot rod rotateed rotisserie-style above the crowds for the duration of the Jan. 14-22 event that attracted hundreds of thousands of enthusiasts from all over the world.

Colin McLemore, founder and owner of Mac’s Custom Tie-Downs, had the 1935 Ford truck secretly brought back to perfection for one very special car enthusiast-his father. McLemore’s father, Neal McLemore, purchased the truck in 1986 as a retirement project, but never got around to fixing it up. McLemore surprised his dad at his 80th birthday party with the completed project that included all the bells and whistles, like a warmed-over flathead V8, Lakester headers, custom interior and vintage-style sprint car tires. His father was speechless.
“People trust their prized possessions to our straps, and I’m willing to personally stand behind our product,” McLemore said. “Knowing that your cargo will get from point A to point B safely and securely is priceless.”
Mac’s Custom Tie-Downs has been the market leader in professional tie-down equipment for over 20 years. Based in Idaho, the company prides itself on crafting trusted, tested tie-down gear out of only the best materials. In addition to taking in the rotisserie hot rod, Barrett-Jackson auction attendees will be able to touch and feel many of the products, as well as interact with employees in their exhibit area.
The rotisserie hot rod truck isn’t Mac’s first show stunt. The company in 2013 hoisted McLemore’s personal Hemi-powered Jeep 20-feet high using a crane and only Mac’s wheel nets to secure it to a platform. The vehicle hung safely and securely high in the Utah sky at a national Jeep event for five straight days drawing a large crowd.
The Rotisserie hot rod truck demo will go on tour in 2017 and will feature different rotating vehicles at various auto events nationwide.
