The Truck

The sight of this colossal truck has been known to silence even the most chatter prone two-year olds, and occasionally even their fathers. There's nothing like it. This truck has to be seen in real life in order to be believed. But if you're reading this, you may as well check out a live view and prepare your imagination! Built by General Motors of Canada, the 1974 Terex Titan – all 350 tonnes, 66 feet and 3,300 Horse Power of it – lives in Sparwood. Two Greyhound buses and 2 pickups can fit into the box, all at once!
