Tycho of Beijing’s Carnewschina is onto a rapidly trending phenomenon among the big boys of China: Heavy trucks with convertible tops. It appears to be an aftermarket mod that is not always strictly voluntary:  Trucks sometimes roll. Due to the amazing build quality of Chinese trucks and the help of a few hundred migrant workers, a rolled truck quickly is back on its many wheels. With parts essential for a repair safely secured, the chop-top truck is back on its merry way.

China has an “insatiable appetite for heavy-duty trucks,” as Forbes’ China-tracking Jack Perkowski wrote. China is the world’s largest market for heavy trucks, with nearly 1 million units of the big (and usually blue) units sold last year.

This brilliant blue FAW (with matching shirt) truck was seen in Xuzhou in Jiangsu Province. The topless trucks usually go unmolested by Chinese law enforcement, Carnewschina says: “Police, if on the road, which is extremely rare, will likely do with just a fine and let it all go, confiscating would be far too much paperwork!”

I you are into trucks that dropped their tops, head on over to Carnewschina, a virtual Topless Central when it comes to trucks.
