Crew Dick Interviews: Sunnyvale Wheels

Ricky using his clearing stick to clear shit off the shitmobile

With Trailer Park Boys Season 12 filming wrapping up, the camera dicks are getting ready to leave Sunnyvale. We can confirm that Ricky is thrilled that they are leaving because he is fucking fed up with them, but we can bet that he will miss the help of Transportation Coordinator Shawn Murphy.  Without constant work on the Shitmobile, it’s FUCKED.

Murphy is the vehicle wrangler on the set of Trailer Park Boys, and while he and the rest of the crew dicks have a love-hate relationship with Ricky’s 1975 New Yorker, there’s no question as to its value.

Generally the Shitmobile is what it is, it’s a piece of shit which requires a lot of bubble gum to keep it running each season,” says Murphy.  “But it’s definitely our prize possession.”

It wasn’t always a big piece of shit, but Ricky doesn’t exactly baby the fucking thing.

“Back in the day, it was a great-running vehicle,” recalls Murphy.  “But as you’ve seen through the seasons, we’ve definitely put her through her paces. She’s incurred some damage, and it basically is now what it’s called, it’s a Shitmobile.”

Murphy says there are a ton of fucking issues with it – gaskets, oil, all kinds of fuckarounds – but the main thing that keeps him busy is the Shitmobile’s extreme lack of fuel efficiency.

“The biggest problem with the Shitmobile has always been the fact that it runs off a marine gas tank in the back,” says Murphy. “That big motor, it takes about 11 minutes at idle before you gotta dump a jerry can in it.  That’s basically the biggest headache with the Shitmobile.”  

But lucky for Ricky, when the crew dicks are around, they make sure the Shitmobile at least meets the safety standards of a film set… even a totally fucked one like Trailer Park Boys.

It starts every time.  It does run, the brakes are good, we gotta have it safe for cast and crew, bystanders and whatnot,” explains Murphy.  “It definitely doesn’t have an actual safety sticker on it.  Even it was in good condition, you couldn’t get that, seeing as how it’s missing a door.

From Japan by way of a greasy Nova Scotian junk yard

When it was time for Bubbles to upgrade from his go-kart, they checked in with Murphy to see if he knew of anything that was low-cost, but could still haul around some barrels of Nuclear Bloom (or bull semen).  Enter Bubbles’ fucked little white truck.

“It came from Chester, Nova Scotia,” recalls Murphy.  “A guy down there, an eccentric fellow that owns a scrap yard is sitting on 50 of them, in the woods there, with trees and grass all growing up through them. I met him on a different production.  When the Boys said they wanted a mini truck, I knew where to get one for cheap.”

The Mitsubishi turned out to be perfect for Bubbles.  Well, almost perfect.

“It’s made for Asian men, there’s no seat adjustment,” explains Murphy.  “When us Canadian folk go in, we get pretty jammed up in there. And it’s a right-side drive, it’s a little interesting getting used to that at first.”

While the size of the thing might’ve been a bastard to deal with, it did leave Bubbles and the transportation dicks some room for error while they were getting used to steering on the other side of the vehicle.

“The thing is only about three feet wide, so you have a lot of lane left.”

A favourite from his fan days

Before he was fucking around with vehicles on the set of Sunnyvale, Murphy was a fan of the show and loved the many vehicles that Julian would cruise around in.  When asked for a favourite, it was an easy answer.

I liked Julian’s SVT Cobra Mustang,”  says Murphy.  “It’s a badass pony.

Even though he wasn’t a part of the Trailer Park Boys crew at the time, he still got his greasy fingers on the Mustang.  In a bit of foreshadowing for his future role, the car was brought into Murphy’s former place of business.

“I was working at a Ford dealership at the time, when he was getting the motor rebuilt on it, and I actually got to take it on its first test drive with the new motor myself.”

The verdict?

“It was a pretty wild car.”

New on swearnet.com – Kings of Sunnyvale

Kitty Ricky is causing some big fucking problems in the park on the latest episode of Trailer Park Cats.  

Living in a car can certainly be a whore of a life, and Ricky is fed up with the dogs and squirrels of Sunnyvale.  They’re constantly barking and pissing in his dope plants and he’s had enough.

He’s not the only one who has had enough – Julian is fucking annoyed at Ricky for firing off guns in the middle of the night, and Bubbles doesn’t want Ricky forcing his cats to live with him in the shitmobile.

Guest animator Jordan Hill changes the kitty litter for a fresh take on the look and feel of the Trailer Park Cats series, which features on feline adaptations of classic Trailer Park Boys moments!
