Arrow Biggest Truck Video

Check the video in the link below. It shows one of the biggest trucks I've ever seen! It is running over and pulverising a big SUV which is actually smaller than the truck's wheels!

World's Biggest Car - CollegeHumor video

The reflection on the windscreen in this photo (p1000631.jpg) suggests a badge with the colors of the Indian flag. Is this car with some Indian official?

The same picture also shows the console with a button/ indicator marked "Passenger Air Bag". Is it to switch on/ off the air bag or is it an indicator to show the working status? Is it true that the passenger air bag should be deactivated if there is a baby in a cradle in the front seat?

Wow that Nissan is a large SUV ! The biggest cars I have driven are Chevy Impala 2007 and Buick LeSabre 2005 both 5m and above.

Typical us type of car. Large V8 to make you enjoy ( and forget fuel pumps for sometime ), large interiors, everything is almost in excess. great writeup and hope you enjoy the journey.

Default Nissan is big on SUV's

Nissan has a lot of SUV's in its portfolio like the..

Pathfinder
Patrol
Armada
Xterea
murano

and they sell the luxury versions of the same branded as the Infinity QX series..like the Infinity QX56 which is the equivalent Armada but with way better kit..still.

The Audi Q7 never stands a chance near the Armada/QX56..here are a few pics

The biggest vehicle I have driven was a Tatra T815 8x8.1R. I covered a distance of ~10m, and that still is one of my most memorable drives.
Otherwise the 2.0 Safari is the biggest vehicle I have driven over some distance.

I was fortunate enough to have a free ride in this fine piece of automotive art.

The coolest thing in this car is the hydraulics controls on the rear doors;
free a button situated on the C-pillar on the inside and the door shuts smoothly....MAGIC!

[dhirajs;834592]The Biggest car ive EVER driven in B'bay for two days

Pardon me if this is OT, but I was wondering if all the mobile phones admissible in there are pre-programmed to be on silent, now that Ogilvy’s clock has gone quieter too with quartz tech?!

No sir, they still play the good old Himesh ringtones at their loudest! Especially Dhiraj's phone!
