A vintage pickup truck was towed away Wednesday morning from Cody’s Original Roadhouse in The Villages.
Curious Villagers watched as a tow truck from Superior Towing in Ocala loaded up the old orange truck which has been a part of the restaurant’s decor since it opened its doors at Lake Sumter Landing.
The truck was being hauled from the restaurant site to be taken in for a fresh paint job, according to Cody’s owner Allen Musikantow. After it gets a fresh coat of paint, it will be returned to the popular restaurant. The paint job should take a few days, he said.
After the truck at Lake Sumter Landing is finished, the truck at the Brownwood restaurant will also be painted.
