General Motors Trucks of the Future (1982)

In 1982-83 Geoff Lawson created these concept paintings for General Motors. Stumbling upon great pieces of transportation futurism from the past certainly makes me wonder if a current lack of imagination is what has doomed the American auto industry. (via BigLorryBlog)

    The American auto industry has really woken up in a good motivation when they have been planning for this future trucks by the way. It's not a big thing which can ever have it before. The strategic and innovative ideas are good enough now .

I wonder what they would be like if actually built, as far as mileage, etc.?

When it comes to design-issues, I share your thoughts (but including the worldwide auto-industry).
Although the cars today may look much more 'stylish' than the ones let's say 10 years ago, I happen to miss a certain amount of 'evolution'...

I can't quite put my finger on why, but something about that truck in the top image reminds me of the "guildsmen" -- sort of extreme-high-tech descendants of today's "big rig" drivers -- in Heinlein's Starman Jones.

OMG, this design is so iconic 1980s futurism. The hmm... angular plasticity with some cyberpunk nichés, omnomnom! There's something similar to this

It reminds me of the TV series " The Highway Man".

And yes, the design is way..way futuristic of its time.

It all looks more like Japan than anything we'd ever have seen in the states.
