When it comes to cars and machinery, there’s nothing quite as deeply satisfying and pandering to the big kid in all of as as a large red truck. You see a pudgy looking red toy truck as a kid and somehow your little-kid mind can’t imagine that such a thing can actually exist in the real world at a real size. And then you see one and it’s so much bigger than anything you imagined. I remember how excited I was a as kid every time a fire-engine passed by. I’d have been completely in love with this sort of large red dumper truck, alas we only had yellow one where I lived. If we had red trucks like this, I’d have probably hung around road-works and building sites and stared at it all day and imagined borrowing it and going on magic adventures.
