The Tallahassee Fire Department is looking for the person or persons who set fire to a truck early Wednesday morning and this was no ordinary truck. The 1957 GMC Suburban owned by Coosh Willis was a staple at Coosh's Bayou Rouge Restaurant.

Firefighters say the truck was set on fire between 1:00 and 2:00 in the morning. Willis says he has owned the truck for five years, but it took him two years to find such a classic.

"When you do this, it goes deeper than just you know, we did something funny or something like this because this is a lot of effort that we had put into this--my whole family." said Willis.

The fire department is still investigating the arson--if you have any information about this crime call the fire hot line (850) 891-FIRE.
