Toughest Trucks from the Streets to Showtime

by Norm Geddis

Hardcover(Library Binding)



Trucks have always been the car's less attractive and less washed cousins. That does not mean their culture is any less important and certainly not less fun. In fact, trucks are essential to the economy of the world and are a lot of fun when the right creative minded person comes along and makes a monster of them. From 18-wheelers hauling everything under the sun cross-country to pickup trucks fancier than any luxury car, it's all inside. Pickups are not just utility vehicles anymore, but there are many that have the power needed to get the toughest job done. Find out which trucks are the brawniest and which are packing arenas with screaming fans in Toughest Trucks: From the Streets to Showtime. Each book in The World of Automobiles series takes a close-up look at the most interesting aspects of the cars we love. Who makes them, how we love to trick them out, the craziest cars of them all, and trucks too…it's all here. So, jump in, get behind the wheel and put the pedal to the floor!
