Junkyard Dog is a tow truck driven by Billy Ray Stillwell in Twisted Metal: Black and Twisted Metal: Lost. This vehicle reappears in Twisted Metal (2012).
Billy Ray's vehicle, the Junkyard Dog, is a run-down tow truck that helps him earn a second income. At night, along the country road, he tows stranded motorists to the local mechanic for repairs. Its Special Attack is a flaming spiked ball that dangles from the truck's tow arm, and is similar to the Gas Can, but more powerful. Press the Fire Weapon button once to hurl it and a second time to bring it down upon the targeting reticle.

Junkyard Dog is a returning vehicle featured in Twisted Metal (2012). Junkyard Dog's primary special, "Taxi Toss" launches a homing taxi into enemies from behind using the tow winch. Yes, you read that correctly: this vehicle's special lets you throw a taxicab at your enemies! The taxi can also be dropped from behind like a mine and will explode when struck. The alternate special, "Taxi Detonation", functions similarly to the Remote Bomb and can be launched or dropped in the environment. Let the taxi cook long enough and it will send out a shockwave upon detonation, which will damage everyone caught in the blast radius.In Multiplayer team modes, the alternate special is replaced by "Team Health drop", which lets the player drop a "health taxi" for teammates in the enviroment that can be detonated remotely, the longer the "health taxi" cooks the more it will heal your teammates. Take note however that the "health taxi" cannot be used to heal yourself.
