"Duel" truck

A great movie!

She Looks Ready to Go to Work Today

Of course any self-respecting trucker would want bigger side view mirrors, additional marker lights, turn signals and would certainly enjoy playing with the turn signal semaphore.

This is an IH and the truck from the movie is a Peterbilt but the horn in the middle of the roof instantly brought me to the movie. If you look quick the trucks are similar. Down below the bumper is the regular steering wheel activated horn.
