Fantastically Strange Trucks

If you remember our article about Scary Trucks and Truck Trains, here are a couple of incredible trucks we found recently:

Two-headed MAN fire truck – more info:

This is the two-headed tunnel washer that works in the Mont Blanc tunnel. Having two cabs allow it not to turn around in the tunnel.

Le Tourneau US Army Load Carrier – more info

This is “the 1962 US Army’s 13-unit electric hub motor all-wheel-drive Overland Train MkII, built for the US Army Transportation Research and Development Command. A ‘mere’ 382 tonnes GCW and ‘small’ 137 tonnes payload.”


I’m always late anyway:

Big Heads

Click to enlarge – really bizarre ad campaign by DDB London Agency. I feel uncomfortable just looking at these:


Another one of these “get rich quick” schemes?

Sell these, together with a 30-day course of starting a donut farm.
