I bet that isn't the original paint job. Amazing colours.

A real "ship of the desert." And well protected against evil spirits. Beautiful

The new owners have definitely added their own personal "touch" to the paint job. An improvement over military drab or camou, I'm sure.

Tthis one is empty !... but I have already seen some old transports on narrow West Indian roads , completely painted up and overfilled with people ... and guess what saying there was in front of the truck ? "Lord, here we come"

@Namaki: I also like the way they have signs painted on the buses and trucks - my favourite truck picture has 'Titanic' written across the back. Bus - 'We Trast in God' In Afghanistan its interesting that they always do these in English!

Marie-Hélène Ammor from Casablanca/Paris, Morocco

It's pretty special that colored truck abandoned in a desert place ! it is the only color in a gray landscape ! Beautiful picture !
