The movie 'Maximum Overdrive' and old Macks

Recommended Posts

Like many on here I enjoy movies that feature trucks such as Convoy, Black Dog etc. However my favorite has always been Maximum Overdrive where a machines came alive and some old trucks kept people hostage at a gas station.

Where there any other truck movies that featured so many old Macks?

Of all the remakes of movies nowadays and since technology is such a big part of our lives I always figured a remake a movie about our modern personal machines taking over would be cool.. including trucks.

Watch "Moonfire" great trucks and great acting with an awesome storyline!

I watched it the other night...lots of video of an RL700 and FL700...it was cool watching them and the great scenery (filmed in the southwest and Mexico). Several shots of the driver shifting the duplex.

I saw that recently. It is a superliner.

Also check out the German TV movie 'Fleisch' released in English as 'Spare Parts'. One of the main characters drives a great looking RS700L.

There was another B model at the Dixie boy thinking a 70 series from the radiator. I watch that movie a few times a year along with Convoy and Duel.

Never saw the whole movie, but have this clipped saved on my favorites: 

Lots of cool old iron, including a couple R models.
