  • I love it. Awesome mean looking machine.. it makes me wonder, the sytling we are all king of going towards, you know, may be coming from the emotional side of view, hard , mean machine.. I wonder if the world is ending up that way, I wonder if there's any happy in there ? Think about it..(even though i wouldnt mind you wouldnt mind may be, but the entire world in another 500 years...imagine)

  • Gary, Nice ergonomic and aerodynamic design! I love the retractable snow plow and four wheel steering! It just makes sense.

    12 years ago

  • Cheers Don. 10 years old now and with an aesthetic that I probably wouldn't follow these days, but I still kinda like it. The 4 wheel steering still makes sense though.

  • Many thanks Maarten, this was part of a study done primarily for a magazine article and to help keep things interesting.

  • I like how the forward-bias makes it look studiously hard at work even when it isn't operating. Also carries your trademarks for robust surface volumes and strong sense of durability. Nice one Gary!

  • Many thanks Marc. Hopefully my next role is going to allow me to explore concepts like this for real. Goes live July 1st.

    10 years ago

  • Thanks Dave. Like I said in my response to Marc, next time it won't just be self propelled work to relieve the frustration.

  • Always loved the chunky porportions of this, as well as the graphic lead-in from the DLO to the bed.

  • I love the "?-shape" edge that connects the grille and the cab. I do like the sloping canopy with integrated lights and the flat surface of the body. Great concept Gary!

  • Thanks Albert, I've wanted to do a big rigid truck for years and, whilst this was just a first look, I'll be doing some legitimate work on them really soon.
