Volvo Trucks - "Big in the USA"

Mid-American Trucking Show is the largest truck show in the U.S. At this event drivers, fleet owners and trucking companies meet up for a few intensive days to inspire each other. Of course Volvo Trucks were also in place at the fair and visitors flocked around hybrid truck Mean Green. We also took a look at a really homely truck - who would not want to have a truck with its own shower and kitchen? Visit Volvo Trucks web site: http://www.volvotrucks.com/
