Fearsome cowskull truck terrorizes, enchants

Posted By on Fri, Feb 27, 2009 at 7:05 AM

Westside residents may already be familiar with this awesome sight, but it was only recently that we at The Pitch noticed it cruising down Southwest Boulevard.

Looking straight out of a Robert Rodriguez movie, this mightily ornamented truck belongs to the owners of Los Alamos Market y Cocina at 17th and Summit, our 2007 Best Mom and Pop winners. We spotted it parked outside the well-stocked cafe and convenience store while picking up Mardi Gras supplies (tequila and a sixer of Bud Light Lime) and were struck not just by how fiercely it comes off but also by the detailed craftsmanship -- that faux-weathered white enamel, the squiggly "cracks" in the skull. It's a work of art. But not one you'd want coming at you at 45 miles an hour.
