Highwayman Truck - High-tech,
heavily armed 12-ton
black Mack truck featured on the adventure THE HIGHWAYMAN/NBC/1988.
Patrolling the highways of futuristic America were Highwaymen,
lawmen working in secret and alone on behalf of the Justice
Department for a test program called the "Stealth Project."
"Most crimes in our society begin and end on some stretch of road
where laws often terminate at county lines. Combating these legal
blackouts is a new breed of lawman working in secret and alone and
known simply as Highwaymen....They say (of the agent called
"Highway") his mother was born of fire and his father was born of
wind...some who say the man is good and some say he is bad; but all
agree who try to play a cheatin' hand, you only get one chance to
draw against...the Highwayman!"
Once such agent named "Highway" (Sam Jones) rode a special
gadget-filled truck to combat the bad guys. His truck sported a cab
that doubled as the cockpit for a helicopter built into the truck,
and a stealth device that turned the truck invisible at full power.
Others assisting the Highwayman included:
- Mark "Jacko" Jackson as Jetto, the rough and tumble partner
- Jane Badler as Tania Winthrop,
touch controller who gave the
Highwaymen their rolling orders.
- Tim Russ as D.C.Montana, hi-tech mechanic and electronic
wizard who maintained the trucks for the Justice Department.
The phrase "If You Love Something, Set It Free" was printed on
the back of the truck. "The Highwayman" was written on the cab
The truck's various license plates were: 7GR-8E2, 13-8R41,
29-3588, PC-2986, PC-6045 and T-28032.
