The Maibatsu Monstrosity. Mine is bigger.

But in all seriousness, that's one kick ass vehicle.

Fitting that this is going to be debuted in Detroit.

Maybe now Robocop can stop driving that shiatty Taurus...

Didn't this get reported last year by PopSci? Or was that the concept, this is the real deal?
I think the Palastines have the lock on the Terror Truck logo - load a minibus up with nutjobs and C4, drive it into a wall. Fun for everyone!

John Winger: Come on, it's Czechoslovakia. We zip in, we pick 'em up, we zip right out again. We're not going to Moscow. It's Czechoslovakia, it's like going into Wisconsin.

Russell Ziskey: Well, I got the sh** kicked out of me in Wisconsin once. Forget it.

My wife has the copyright on Terror Truck. Or car. Or anything else she drives.
2002-12-28 01:38:04 PM  
Soccer moms all across america are killing kittens to this as we speak.
2002-12-28 01:39:41 PM  
Pyrex Nope. It's spelled LASER. It's an acronym. Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.

Hey, I've been looking for a chance to test one of these LAWs that I... found, yeah...
2002-12-28 01:43:53 PM  
I can assure you that we here in Canada will begin purchasing these "terror trucks" as soon as they catch on in the states.

Nobody removes 007's hoes.

How long until I can get one of these in El Camino form?
2002-12-28 01:57:47 PM  
Finally, a place to put my grenade launcher!
2002-12-28 01:59:45 PM  
Ya, I own one of these, they are great!
2002-12-28 01:59:50 PM

road rage.

Yeah...I know it might be hard to believe in Oregon. Ya'll still have those people in carts, huh?
2002-12-28 02:50:02 PM  
That's better than "sharks with frikkin' laser beams attached to their heads"

Born To Be Wiiild!
2002-12-28 02:55:50 PM  
I would love one of these to take out some of these idiot drivers here in pittsburgh..... But the fact that it has a grenade launcher on the roof is enough to make me want to go and mortgage everything I own for one of these trucks....
2002-12-28 02:58:23 PM  
It's like what the A team would build, if they weren't always having to pull something together in 2-3 hours.

"DETROIT - The 87th North American International Auto Show that will open here on January 5 claims to be "a show of superlatives" that started in 1907 when 17 exhibitors presented 33 vehicles in a Detroit beer garden."

Hey, am I the only one that's highly disappointed in the PR department for this show? "Show of Superlatives"? Ain't that like giving up? Fark, at least you can actually USE a couple of superlatives to hype the damn thing. I'm sure that there's some hyperactive PR woman named Darlene or Susie that should be fired for this.
2002-12-28 02:59:07 PM  
Hell, I have designed a few anti-pursuit devices myself. Oils slicks are easy to make. The microwave gun destroys a pursuer's electronics. The flaming magnesuim grid blinds them with the light of 100 suns. The only real trick is working the devices into the tail of your vehicle without being overly conspicuous.
2002-12-28 03:11:24 PM  
I hear Randy Moss ordered 3 or 4 of these

2002-12-28 03:12:44 PM  
BuzzardBreath, thanks. I was looking for a picture of the Urban Assault Vehicle. Life imitates art.
2002-12-28 03:18:02 PM  
Sure it does. But I have a lasergunproof suit and my dad could STILL wup your dad.

My truck can beatup your truck!!

Gee, well now I'm convinced.

Do we need to get Bevets in here to explain why you should accept things based upon blind faith?
2002-12-28 03:28:41 PM  
...unfortunately if this thing thinks its sexy, it better stay out of San Francisco...or it will take it up the exhaust pipe...

SmarTruck is old, old and busted

Maybe the truck from Stripes should be the new hotness
