    well they are old but they spend about 1 - 2 Laks on its decoration.. basically they are trailer type trucks .. and their back is build by people and usually you see alot of reflecting stickers which are their decoration

    and 1 more thing.. they are really tough and sometimes they get heat up but they travel karachi to Pershwar anytime with just 5 hours stop somewhere near Multan or before! ... as far as hilly ares are concerned.. they do get overheat but still its just and 4 - 5 hours stay and they get cooled by water.. and there you GO

    thanks XaxoOBoY.Is it running on Petrol or diesel? well ,I have seen such bedord trucks around a decade back and so are those front housing buses.but ,indian law asks for scrapping of taxi vehicles to be scrapped after some years of usage. The decoration of pakistani trucks are sure looks like a artform! it is shocking to see that umbrella like thing above trucks. Well ,decoration of trucks are common in India.we can identify the truck by its looks from which state it is coming from.


    Those bedfords ,chevrolet lorries and buses were common in India until end of 1960s.british Leyland and benz(TATA) replaced them all.also ,petrol powered trucks are labelled not safe during those times due to ford trucks caught fire.these are infos I gathered from a old baba near our place.

    the ones running on highways are mid 60's models.
    Almost everyone in Pakistan is doing corruption to the extent they can. Our leaders are doing at the level they can do. So why should we complain?

    I do not agree with the comments of the aashiq that the HINO Bussses are first introduced in 1992 by Nawaz Sharif scheme. The hino busses and trucks are start assembling in pakistan since 1986. And hino busses and trucks are also imported from Japan also before 1986.

    the main thing is that they are fuel efficient and are easy to be repaired even on the road the driver can repair them on their own i even saw the tyre joint repaired by the driver himself.

    they r diesel powered and can carry heavy loads easily n are decorated with love as they are in pakistan
    the litterally spent 4 to 8 lacs for the (Chamak Pattis )
    a guy in UK have imported some of these trucks and rickshaws as well from Pakistan....

    they are the true icon of pakistan

    there is a water service in karachi by the name of Ghulam Nabi water tanker he owns almost 100 150 of these kinds and every one of them are worth watching
