This truck model and others similar to it stuck around, and since then they've been produced commercially throughout the country. But today, they’re not just functional and mundane — their paintings make them stand out. Colorful trucks aren’t rare in India, and their designs aren’t random. Artists that specialize in painting these trucks put a lot of thought into the art form, making the vehicles a spectacle of beauty in India. This Vox Borders episode looks at why truck art is such a staple in India.

The Philippines took a similar approach to jeepneys, but its no longer thriving, its dwindling

Truck horns in India are unique too. They come in many different tunes.

In Stockton, a lot of Punjabi truckers still try to put some art on their trucks, mainly of their roots, religion etc just like in India but not as much. I feel like you can find it everywhere. It's pretty cool
Best thing you will get is Quotes behind trucks that are very funny 😁 like-
