A number of countries are famous for their colorful customized trucks, like Pakistan, and India. But here’s one from Russia that’s anything but cheerful. Feeling a bit surly, are we?
Looks like the intent is to replicate, in premise if not in precise detail, the armored tanker from the climactic scenes of “Road Warrior”
If not Road Warrior, somebody paid attention to the album art in Emerson Lake & Palmer’s “Tarkus”. (Nice goof on the Mack bulldog…)
Don’t look at that truck the wrong way!
Reminds me of this old Dennis Weaver flick: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duel_%281971_film%29
Only more menacing.
I think I saw this pic before, in the Manual of Mental Disorders!
Looks like somebody watched “Road Warrior” and “Duel” a few too many times…..
Very Mad Max
Wow. I agree – very mad max style. Wonder how that mod would look on a bucket truck??
Maybe the neighborhood that it delivers is just that rough.
In Soviet Russia, truck hauls you!
I was wondering how long it would take us to get to the Russian Reversal.
This looks like something out of the old Swat Kats cartoon.
