  • OT- Truck Art

    Post 1 of 2.

    I thought a bit of "lightening up" and change of pace with some worthwhile manipulation of photo images would be a nice change.

    It is "as is" as it arrived by email recently.

    It's one for the "Truckers" and "image-manipulators".

    I thought it was pretty clever. They are very imaginative.

    Very obviously, it is the same image of the same truck in the same place - 7 times.

    As there are 7 images, and as I am limited to 4 images per post, this will have to go to (what I hope to be) 2 consecutive posts.

    Any comment/s?

    .................................................. ......

    Here are 7 pictures of European trucks whose trailers are decorated to look like the sides are missing and the products they are hauling are painted on the sides and back.

    The first one is of a bottle of beer and looks so real, like it is coming out the side of the trailer.

    The second is of canvas tote bag.

    The third is of Pepsi cases and they are all stacked on the ceiling, and the bottom of the trailer is empty.

    The fourth is of another truck with the windshield facing the back and there has been a driver painted in the driver's seat looking back over his shoulder to appear like he is driving backwards. (Now this one is just plain scary, even when the German reads "On the wrong way?")

    Now - onto post 2 of 2.

    Truck art (2)

    Post 2 of 2

    The fifth one is of an aquarium with fish swimming in it.

    The sixth one is of a bookshelf with books lined up in it and a post-it-note with an advertisement on it, probably for the company that sells the books.

    The last one is for Pringles-Hot & Spicy. The "inside" of the trailer has the appearance of having been through a fire.

      Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

      It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

        Oh, I so wish that we could have recorded a truck in Avignon. The Sur le pont d'Avignon one. I'd just 'sous' 'd the bridge and went up for nourishment neare the Palace of the Popes. Here was a lorry/truck/camion with the words
        in French

        'Another load of Psh1tt!' ( fooled yer)

        But Rolls Royce was going to name its new 'flag ship' Silver Mist.
        I'll leave the Dutch to translate.

        One of my mates found something called Pile Wonder in France. It did not work. Well, it did because his rear end glowed for a while

            This one's been around the forums for quite a while, but it's still my favorite truck paint job:

              Nope, went under the old bridge! Would you believe that it has spans missing?
              I was canoeing- down the Rhone to Arles. L'Arlaisienne ( or Lazy Hen) and having a Bizet time. Finished up in the Med- in more ways than one- for the Carthorse Julie- Quartorze Juillet. I was a right little Bastille- as Hector Berlioz wood( ah, yes) say. I am almost cracked the expression about curing one's Cathar. However, it would be Aigues Mortes or Dead Water on the rest.

              One passes a place called Orange but not the one next to Tumbarumba in NSW!

              PS. Nice one, Frank, Oi loik it- Gard de Lieu?

                  Nope- it is guard the 'loo. The water bit doesn't quite bother me although I do get flushed at times from my exertions. It is the Chamber( sic) of Horrors that causes the damage- from upstairs windows.

                  Never did trust the French. Did you realise that the sewers of Paris have street names and every so often they run boat trips for visitors> Then they run their balls down them to clean them. I joketh not, fellas.

                  We, and I confess to being a Francophile have something called a 'Poo bell' in the French 'broom cupboard' up in the Savoie.
                  And they have a nasty habit of nasal things.
                  They have signs at the end of tunnels asking the Brits to 'extinguish their bougies' Boogies are snots in any language but I don't pick my nose in public- even in tunnels. And then at every bend in the road - they 'Danger Pierres chutes'
                  Poor bugger- with every Frog gunning for him.

                  And they eat snails. They do!

                    Foreign languages

                    Norm and others.

                    Beware when quoting foregn languages or "rubbishing" the "locals".

                    Being of Irish extraction, I just loved this one.

                    An Irishman walking through a field sees a man drinking water from a pool with his hand. The Irishman shouts "Na ol an t-uisce, ta sé lan de chac bo" (Don't drink the water, it's full of cow sh!t.)

                    The man shouts back "I'm English, speak English, I don't understand you".

                    The Irishman shouts back "Use both hands, you'll get more in."

                        Road Rocket

                        Here's one for all you "Road Warriors" - a "Road Rocket"

                        "As is" - from an email received recently.


                        Can you imagine some guy going 110 kph on the freeway
                        with these balloons trailing a few metres behind him?

                        Instructions for a fun time on the freeway...............

                        Step 1. Tie balloons to car.
                        Step 2. Drive like a bat out of hell....
                        Step 3. Watch people freak out!!!!

                        I don't care who you are....that's funny.

                          I can not Imagine anyone going 110 KPH.

                          80 MPH perhaps.

                            Porsche or Ferarri not enough?

                            The following is another email received rescently - "as is" - just a pic. Says it all - doesn't it?

                            'nuther one for the "Road Warriors".

                            Seems a Porsche or Ferarri or the like just is not enough.

                            But check out the "Doctors" car in the Doctor's car Park.

                            OT? No way. This is about:
                            - "cutting edge" stuff;
                            - quality "mills";
                            - whether "quality iron" really will "do it for you";
                            - getting a better (bigger?) "fit";
                            - getting a better "finish";
                            - getting it in and keeping it in;
                            - perhaps "Sir" is going for a "Sir clip" - oh!! - a circlip was it?.
                            - whether "bigger is better" after all;
                            - retro-fitting with better gear;
                            - etc.;
                            - etc.

                            Oh dear.

                              I can go along with that John.

                              Reminds me of a crowd of men in a cleared land area.

                              If they were Irish, it would be a Paddy Field.

                              If they were Australian it would be a vacant lot.

                              Ain't it the truth though?
