So this was something I did out of pure boredom. Back in October, I had ordered the 7638 Tow Truck off of eBay for a good price, but then I thought that it didn't really match well with my gas station. Recently, City has been doing nods to a lot of its classic sets in current city sets. In 2015, there were two nods. One was a tv chopper in set 60097, which was rather eerily similar to the TV Chopper from 1998. There was also this space set, which was a nod to a classic set. But I don't remember what it was. 2018, they did 60183 Heavy Cargo Transport and in 2021, they had the 60289 Air Show Transport; both of which were obvious nods to the 6357 Stunt Copter N Truck. It came to my mind of.....what would a revival of the tow truck from the 6337 Fast Track Finish set look like. So with that being said, here is a pic of my nod to the old Octan tow truck. For the side stickers, I had some Xtra sticker packs where I got the Octan labels from plus another Octan label that I got from eBay. My method to making this MOC, which is basically a recolored 7638, was really just to replace all the orange with white and all the bottom with red and green. I also replaced the blue lights with orange lights as those are what we use as warning lights here in the states (Just to clarify to our members from other countries). This MOC was pretty simple come to think of it. Now the tow truck is ready to help out any car that is broken down in town.

Nice, the colors fit well to it.

It is also a reminder of the truck that came with the 6397 Octan station

DUDE!!!!! I remember having that set too! As a child who was building towns since preteenhood, that building fit perfectly into my town. To date, I think I have owned every since service center made by Lego from 2000 onward. Though the one from 2020 made me go back to the 2016. :laugh:

Not sure why, but I can't see any of your pictures...

Hmmmm.....that's odd. Both on my computer and phone, I can see them. I guess that depends on what type of browser you're using.

I cleared my cache and it's still not working. (I'm using google chrome, on a PC running windows, in case anyone else is having this issue!) Very strange...

Are they hosted with Google? I can't see them either, usually it's because my ad/tracking blocker is fighting off whatever nonsense Google wants to track and spam me with.

I mouse over it, and yes, It appears to be as you describe. I also have an adblocker, so you're probably correct.

When I posted above the image was showing, but now indeed it does not work.

Maybe try to use a more "standard" image service? Like imgur.com
