Oddball truck?
« on: July 02, 2010, 11:50:18 PM »

They were filming scenes for a movie here this week.
 
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0433035/
 
The steet scene included the Cadillac Sixteen concept car and this IH cabover thing which seems to have a lower windshield by the drivers feet?
 
Anybody know if that is factory, or is it something they cooked up for this film?

Very innovative use of a cab that was used for many years.
Obviously,not much  other than a regualr cab mounted high atop the engine.Looks like it was stacked on top of  the fenders.
At the same time,I find it hilarious that where the firewall would have been on a conventional truck had two windows.

Screw the truck!  That Cadillac Sixteen is incredible.  But, typical GM, they probably won't take it to production.

And of course, Dodge did it.  Although technically a semi-cabover:

If it makes it into production, maybe they can find a better solution for the park brake

If I described the tractor that I did my first road trip in, you'd never wonder again why I am so grizzled.

This is what my father drove back in the day. A little rough.

How about REALLY pushing the limits with the lowly A100 minivan:

 
These were great trucks in their day

I remember several manufacturers raiding the parts bins and doing that.
Heres a Ford version.  We affectionately called it The 1 1/2 story Falcon.
