1930 Ford Pickup owned and built by Jimmy Hervatin of Warrenton, Missouri. The truck, who is known as "Emerald Tide", was built from scratch after a Keith Weesner painting with the same name. The build was started at the end of 2008. The cab was made from scratch and consisted of aluminum skin over a steel inner structure. The bed was made out of steel.

The original plan was to keep the car unpainted and paint all bare metal with clear paint. It was eventually painted green metallic like the Keith Weesner painting. The build was completed in 2010.
