2. Kenworth w900 used in Smokey and the Bandit.

3. Mack CX 613 Vision used by the bad guys in Bad boys II.

4. Peterbilt 379 in Black Dog.

5. Freightliner COE used in terminator 2 (by the t-1000 again)

6. Madmax Mack RD

7. Convoy Mack AKA Rubber Duck

8. GMC Astro COE in Beverly Hills Cop.

9. Futuristic Mack in the Island.

10. International Transtar in The Terminator

Thanks guys for your lists, I forgot all about the Mack R cement mixer in Beverly Hills Cop 2, the only part I remember from that movie, is when Eddie Murphy drives it up to the county club, walks in, and says, I'm here to clean the pool, very funny scene.

Here is a trailer for "Over the Top", starring Sylvester Stallone, a Volvo Integral Sleeper with 100" Double Eagle sleeper behind, and an ancient Autocar daycab.
I guess it was a forgettable movie...

I agree with Philatruck. But I'd put that Freightliner COE wrecker(from Terminator 2) 1st 8)

I just got done watching my dvd of White Line Fever. Still a awsome movie after all these years. Even my kids loved it.
