In practice, every competition has a lot of crashes. Some trucks are going crushed by others. And always we can see at this competitions a lot of dirt (or snow), fun "drift" ( ) of huge machines and stench of exhaust gases
Сompletely agree, ZIL 130 have an collective image of american tracks of that time. But it is more plus of this car because the shape has turned out beautiful.
Thus the design is imposed for the big sizes of a car ( 2.20 m width of a cabin )
Yes, Zil 130/131 trucks are very popular all over the world =)
By the way, there was a question. Whether there were american trucks with the sizes of a cabin as at Zil 130 (and with similar design)?
Copying of design and design decisions took root to factories from the country leaders. Unfortunately...
But in Russia always there were talented designers and artists. Many projects were closed at the earliest stages.
But it is the fact that the design school of the Soviet car factories has come from USA . The first big russian car factory was built with the help of Ford and the first products of "GAZ" factory was license ford cars.
