Thursday Thirteen - Dekotora

Having recently heard of these decorated trucks, I was happy to have found a good selection of photos on Pink Tentacle. Here are thirteen right off of that website.



1. Blinding is the only word that comes to mind.

 




2. Love the dinoasaur theme!
















3. That's a lot of chrome






















4. I wonder what these additions cost


5. Do truck stops bother with overhead lights?






6. I wouldn't want to put anything in this beauty

















7. This reminds me of a slot machine somehow





















8. Can you imagine a parade of these things?

















9. I can't imagine this clearing a bump in the road





















10. Is this really street legal?
















11. Hitting deer must not be a fear for these drivers





















12. I'd love to see these going down American freeways!
















13. This rivals the Las Vegas strip

  1. Wow I've never seen anything like this. Can you imagine the price tag on any one of these. Spectacular.

    Happy Holidays!

  3. Impressive. They'd fit right in with some of the local Christmas decorations.

  4. I never thought about deer but this does look holiday-ish. :) The cost is something I cannot imagine. Thanks for the great comments, dears.

  5. Wowza, those trucks are seriously pimped out! I take it that it's illegal to actually drive some those on the highway? I'd imagine the distraction some of them to cause would be, um, hazardous? ;)

  6. Where are these truck from? They all kind of make me think of slot machines.

  9. I didn't think to mention that these trucks are examples from Japan. I do believe it's legal to take them all on the roads, believe it or not. :)

  10. Woa. Those are crazy looking. How much do people spend to do this? I can't even imagine. It must cost more than my whole year's salary just to get the bumper!

    Thanks - erm, I think - I didn't know people actually did this to their "rolling stock." This is a whole new dimension of pimped out.

  11. Wow, those are really wild - I can't believe it's legal to drive them.

  13. I can't say I'd want to meet any of those trucks on the road! Thank you for sharing a unique experience, Darla!

  14. I think these trucks would make a parade all by themselves.

    Happy TT.

  15. I can't believe these are actual trucks! And here I thought the electric purple semi I saw was unusual. It's positively dowdy next to these specimens!

    Thank you for sharing these, Darla; they're really fun!
