Come on, all of you have a favorite badass truck from a movie or a television show. No, B.J. and the Bear’struck didn’t make this list. TFLtruck’s Top 5 Movie or TV Trucks will count down to one, crowning its winner with accolades and high praise… well, not really.
This is a list based on our small team’s opinions alone. We looked at film and television to find a spectacular or highly notable truck. It may not be the focal point of the program/film, but these trucks stand out and imbedded their coolness upon us.
Sure, it didn’t have much film time, when it was on the screen the highly modified 1941 Chevrolet COE was creepy as hell. I believe the ’41 Cevy COE had a 235.5 cid straight six, but there’s speculation (nothing confirmed) that the Jeepers Creepers Truck had a beefed up 350 or 383 cid V8. It’s hard to know for sure as there’s no “Official” information corroborated by a secondary source.
“This 2001 film stars Justin Long and Gina Philips. Yep, this horror/thriller has a bat-like cannibal hillbilly as the main antagonist. Despite his screeching aloft in the last portion of the film, the evil redneck-mutant drove one hell of a nasty truck for a good portion of the film.
Check out the beefed up 1941 Chevrolet COE (Cab Over Engine) truck with the license BEATNGU. This is a fairly scary movie with some intense and disturbing scenes – yum! It’s just the ticket for a Halloween-ish car flick night!” – – TFLcar’s 10 Ten Spooky Halloween Flicks
It’s not just a creepy truck, the Jeepers Creepers Truck was a cast-member of the film. It is a truck that I would love to own, and so would you. Just think about that obnoxious high school reunion, or that bothersome in-law that needs a ride – or could you imagine tailgating in the Jeepers Creepers Truck? Imagine pulling up in this baby when you attend your ex’s wedding. (maniacal laugh)
Yep, it’s cool because it’s creepy and badass.
