I've 'always' liked Dekotora trucks and knew about the Pakistani long haul painted trucks, but I hadn't noticed the similarities.


justacarguy.blogspot.com:Pakistani custom trucks, the lo-tech version of Japan's 'dekotora trucks'

Dekotora have the over-the-cab storage area, that ostensibly is for carrying tire chains and &tc. The front bumper box is similar but it's definitely a non-electric version.

^^ I was looking for the windows and got thinking about visibility, safety, etc. But I guess that is not the point

Let's look in teh dictionary Wikipedia to see who's picture is next to bad sightlines:


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fileekotora.jpg

Who needs sightlines when you can have a shelf full of religious icons and burning incense preceding you down the road?

jakobnev — An icon of the vehicle that killed the 1930s art deco teardrop, when the 1949 Ford drove the original 'lead sled' design upscale to Mercury.

Dekotora trucks are quite weird-looking. Well, there are trucks with some strange decorations here in Brazil too, but nothing so extreme.

I have no idea how the above example is supposed to work, and in which direction.

Well, had that ducting in front of the A-pillar been clear in order to not harm visibility, I'd actually be quite curious to test-drive it

Test drive? I don't think it would move.

It is art, so by definition its only function is to not have a function.
