The Pork Chop Express - Is it still running?
« on: October 04, 2012, 08:13:15 AM »
Hi Newby here from England.

I am building a 1/24th scale model of my favourite truck, The Pork Chop Express from Big Trouble in Little China. I have taken screen shots from the movie. They offer a little detail, but leave many areas out of view.

I was therefore wondering if the Express still existed and wondered if any of you fine members have any pics of it or know who owns it now, so that I might be able to go and bug them for some pics. I had found a forum thread on the IMCDb site which suggested that there were pics on one of the threads here but I have not been succesful in searching.

Any assistance would be much appreciated. Many Thanks

Thought I read somewhere that the truck is in the Northeast still working, but this is unconfirmed so don't quote me on this. Just watched this for the first time the other day. Very odd movie, not the best acting, but the truck was still awesome IMO. A great old classic Freightliner 8) 8)

I just realized awhile back that truck from PA wasn't a Pork chop truck, the stripes colors were in reverse (Yellow/Blue not Blue/Yellow)  :-\

That one would of been a Replica,  the owners have the paper work and badges all over it to prove it's real one and was they only one,  this one always remained in it's movie colors
