Nice find Tony-Z, I have not seen that one before. I'm going to hot-link it over to a discussion in another forum if you don't mind (see below).

EDIT: replaced truck images with different ones.

What show is that from? I just picked the image off the Internet today, it is funny. EDIT: was talking about the form, but the truck thing is better.

Google "The highwayman"
I pulled the pic off the net somewhere

It showed for about a year when I was a kid, maybe 10 years old....

The Highwayman (TV Series 1987)
IMDb - The Highwayman (TV Series 1987)
Quote:
Series starring a big high-tech 18-wheeler. The driver, the title's 'Highwayman' was one of a team of federal marshals empowered to right wrongs "where ordinary laws do not reach" - and to haul special cargo. The truck was heavily armed, and had a cab that turned into a helicopter for quick escapes. Written by Mike McCluskey
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Highwayman_(TV_series)
Quote:
Original channel NBC
Original run September 20, 1987 – May 6, 1988
I did not own a TV then, was full time working for an architect, and full time night school. I'll see if I can find a DVD of the movie they made.

A little Truck ID game or Trivia if you Will

From what I remember of the show there were a few different trucks, each with its own special design.
The lead truck's cab was actually part of a helicopter which would raise up and fly off leaving the truck behind....
hey, I was young and that was cool. Cooler than Airwolf!!!

more pics






Here the copter is "launching"

Dunno where that is, but here's part of the decor at The Cue Ball, Salem, Oregon.
