AL admires the work of John Brinckerhoff Jackson, one of the great American oddballs. See our post on JBJ and Ed Ruscha; here's another AL post on JBJ and The Vernacular Landscape.
And below is Robert Macfarlane's review of Helen Horowitz's

from Alex Emond: Here's a rig for you. Lots of room, lots of clearance, lots of torque. Whatever that is ... wasn't he in the "Monkees"? I saw this truck in Shaunavon, Sask. Every summer Shaunavon hosts some riding mower races. Good for a laugh. Cheers, Alex
AL: I think the Canadian Pacific Railway had a bunch of these trucks. And you can find a bunch more Autoliterate posts on Internationals up here.
