Packers fan shows his extreme love for team

Packer pride can be seen nearly anywhere you look throughout the state of Wisconsin.

But one local man is taking his love of the team to a whole new level.


Milton Barta isn't your average packers fan. So when this 79-year-old retiree saw a big, old delivery van sitting unused, he knew exactly what to do with it.

The result? A van that has become the perfect packers tailgate on wheels

So, what drives a 79-year-old man to tackle such a huge project?

Take one look at this van and it's easy to see Milton's love for the Packers, but he says it was a chance encounter that led his wife to acquire season tickets 50 years ago that's led to such passion.

Milton's wife was a part-time nurse, when-during a stressful surgery-a doctor used some language she didn't approve of.

Milton knows his creation may soon make him one of the most popular tailgaters at lambeau field, and that doesn't bother him.
