    these trucks are all painted to look like what you see. they are actually regular box trucks. if i saw the guy driving backwards i would pee.

    my sister sends them in email form, but i don't know how to copy pics.
    so, i look them up . in this case i looked up "paintings on trucks" or something like that. and sure enough, that's where they always are.

    aren't these a riot? i'm telling you, i would have a heart attack if i saw that truck with two drivers going in different directions at once.

    my sister and i are the 2 funniest women in north america. well, there may be someone funnier, but i haven't met her. or modester, either. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    If you look real close, the shadows are all the same. I'm thinking these are computer generated illustrations. That many companies having the same truck and trailer would be extremely rare. The shadows under the truck are exactly the same, as is the placement of the squares on wall in front of the cab. Some of the pictures have been cropped so that you get more or less of the background.

    Cool ideas, tho.

    Those are awesome!

    How to copy pics from emails:
    1. Right-click on the picture.
    2. A little menu should appear. Click Copy. If there's no little menu, do Edir/Copy from your menu bar. If you can't. hit the Print Screen button on your keyboard.
    3. Go to your Windows Start button, choose Programs, then Accessories, then Paint.
    4. Edit/Paste. (If you paste in the entire screen, you'll need to crop off the rest of it so only the picture is left.)
    5. File/Save As.
    You can resize the picture in Paint if you need to by doing Image/Stretch-Skew and choosing some percent like 50%.

    Thanks for the link. I opened it at work, and I don't know what made me open more links on that page. Before you know, an hour had past and I had 10 windows opened.

    Now I thank you for this link since my DS is a trucker. He drives flatbed now, but used to drive box. Anyway, I won't pick apart as I loved them and they brightened my day, too. Thanks Butterfly. Keep em coming.

    That is PhotoShop, every truck has the same cab, same wheels, same bumper and tire flaps.
