BigLorryBlog has been the site for some recent bragging about “mine is longer than yours”. The latest entry, a wind turbine blade,comes with an actual measurement, a whopping 61.5 meters (202 feet). But the previous entry (after the jump) is nothing to be embarrassed about either, even thought it lacks any official measurements. Note that neither load was being pulled by a Hummer.

    Speaking of long trucks. Here's a picture from Hemmings.com of a 60ft long trailer from 1942. The custom-built trailers were used to transport B-24 bomber parts from factory to factory. The tractor used two engines linked to a single transmission. Can you imagine driving this thing cross country in those pre-interstate highway days? http://cll.hemmings.com/uimage/3787032-748-531.jpg

    Judging by all the chrome and bullbar... the last truck is from Aussiesland. 61.5 mts is effing long.

  • MaintenanceCosts So this is really just a restyled VW Fox. Craptacular tin can but fun to drive in a "makes ordinary traffic seem like a NASCAR race" kind of way.
  • THX1136 While reading the article a thought crossed my mind. Does Mexico have a fairly good charging infrastructure in place? Knowing that it is a bit poorer economy than the US relatively speaking, that thought along with who's buying came to mind.

  • Lou_BC How about telling China and Mexico, we'll accept 1 EV for every illegal you take off our hands ;)
  • Analoggrotto The original Tassos was likely conceived in one of these.
