For some reason it reminded me that old movie: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067023/


My prints are usually more realistic, this time I chose to depart from reality to give it a kinda scary/disturbing look

Always loved American trucks - so much part of American culture - European trucks are just more like a fridge freezer and void of any soul or character.


Looks like a Peterbilt 379 - probably my all time favourite, along with the Kenworth W900 - although both makes are owned by Paccar, who also own in Europe DAF and the now, sadly, defunct Foden brand - and probably a few other brands too.


The truck in Duel was also a Peterbilt, albeit a much older model.


Just some useless information.

Thank you for stopping by. I agree about American trucks, at least about the look (I cannot comment about technical matter). Your info are very welcome, it's always good to know a bit more about our subjects Wink.


Cheers, M.-

I love american trucks too. I share opinion with Matt5791 respec european trucks.


I think perhaps a less grade can be better for this copy but is an evaluation in my old computer :-(


"Duel" in Spain call "El diablo sobre ruedas" more or less translation The devil on wheels :-))))


Thank for share, regards,


Ruben

Hello, Ruben. Thanks for your comment. I used an hard grade to create a particular atmosphere or mood (the evil truck :D) , unfortunately some of the detail in the shadows got lost in the scan Sad.


Cheers, M.-

A good bold approach to this powerful machine combined with heavy'ish printing that suits. The glint of sun on the exhaust pipe is a nice touch.
