    Mad Dog's dually gets extra points in my books for having actually won the Cannonball.

    (Got to check the book, but if it didn't win, it placed pretty high in it. Like many cars in the movie, it was a real Cannonball entrant.)

      Mad Dog and the boys came in 5th at the 1979 Cannonball Run. About 2 hours (to the minute!) behind the winner. The did the trip in the 454 powered crew cab dually in about 34 hours.

      Awesome story though isn't it!

        The GMC that Rocky drove in the Rockford Files was actually James Garner's personal truck and daily driver.

            Man, you would figure that with a Mopar guy at the helm, the least you could do is recognize that Dennis Weaver drove a Valiant, not a Dart. Geez!
            It's really no different than trying to glue them back on after she has her way.

              "5) K.I.T.T.'s nemisis Goliath from Knight Rider: Yeah, yeah, it?s another rig and another Peterbilt at that. This one was a cab-over model 352 and traumatized Lohnes as a kid when it nearly killed K.I.T.T. In a legendarily campy couple of episodes, Hasselhoff played Michael Knight as well as his evil twin Garthe. Garthe had the truck worked over into in invincible battleship on wheels with the sole mission being the destruction of K.I.T.T. Shockingly, he failed and the series trooped on, much to the delight of kids across America. "

              You and me both Brian :'( :P

              At least the A-Team van had a 350, I figured it was a 305.

              Escaped on a technicality.

                      If you'd like to watch a movie that mainly consists of Dennis Weaver on the verge of tears, sweating, and panting, this is the one for you.

                      The truck is pretty neat though and the fact you never see the driver outside of the occasional shot of his foot on the gas, hand on the shifter, etc is cool.

                      It beats to poop out of Death Proof.

                        Any truck that uses 2 pieces of railroad track as a bumper is evil enough in my book.

                          You can't leave off the Ford F Series from Buckaroo Banzai.

                            Does Daisy Duke's Jeep count as a truck? :P

                            As for Semi's, I always thought that the Kenworth in B.J. and the Bear was the best.
                            (now that I type that, I can't believe that they named a TV show BJ) :

                              Me and DF went back and forth on the Jeep. I was for he was against. Guess who won? ;)

                              This was a fun one to put together. We had about 6 versions until settling on this final one.
