What is it about trucks that is so fascinating? Is it their sheer size and incredible power, or the aura of freedom and the allure of the open road? Whatever it is, Americans have a love affair with trucks, from the weekend pick-up to the biggest tractor-trailer. TRUCKS takes an in-depth look at these uniquely American machines. From primitive, turn of the century steam powered vehicles to the advanced "superliners" that are driving into the 21st century, see how trucks have looked, worked, and changed over the years. Hop in the cab of some of the most famous and unusual trucks ever built. Visit with the Mack Brothers Motor Company and "the truck that built America," and see what might be in store for the future with experts from the industry and the Smithsonian Institute. It's a big ride through the history of America's heavy haulers.
