Tow trucks aren’t the most celebrated of America’s vehicles, but they are the most appreciated during difficult situations. Tow trucks are an American invention created by a Tennessee garage worker turned inventor just under 100 years ago. Since the first tow trucks were produced in 1919, towing has grown into a multi-billion dollar industry across the country. The history of towing is now celebrated at the International Towing & Recovery Museum, located in the birthplace of towing in Tennessee.
