Tow Trucks Parade Through NYC In World Record Bid

(AP) Talk about towing the line.

Nearly 300 tow trucks rumbled through New York City on Saturday in an attempt to smash the world record for the largest parade of its kind.

Organizers think they hit the mark, with 292 trucks participating. The procession included flatbeds, wreckers and 50-ton rotators.

The trucks departed from Shea Stadium in Queens and cruised down a couple of highways before finishing at an abandoned airport tarmac to spell out "New York."

The previous world record was a parade of 83 tow trucks in August 2004 in Washington state.
