I love 'Convoy' for the driving and the music - closely followed by 'Mad Max: Fury Road' (Charlize Theron of course)

It's not really a truck, but Jacob Fuller (Harvey Keitel) told in the movie, that he has a truck license, too.

He drives a truck in a chase, but no truck in the picture:

Searched for a good image, when the Terminator hunted Sarah Connor in 'Terminator', but there was only this one visually strong enough:

The images when Terminator crushes into the police station are not fitting.

Breumaster, I'd say that shot more than fits, but a random trivia fact: it's a miniature, actually and Linda Hamilton is filmed via rear projection. The shot is so seamless fewer people will tell to this day. 

According to my estimates there are 10 shots of this very miniature, which last just 10 seconds

I'll watch the link, soon. For now I got no time. By the way ... I still got those war movies you suggested me to watch. I ordered them and they are here for about half and a year. I hope have time to watch'em this week.

Oscar Isaac in 'A Most Violent Year'. It's a movie about the hard contest of some different heating oil suppliers. Some of the play unfair and rob other suppliers. This is an image of Oscar Isaac, playing Abel Morales. He tries to be fair, but ...

Nice I could help you. :) On 'Le salaire de la peur ': It really is a high suspense classic. I don't know if I gave you links that would fit for your special purpose. But I know that many people will remember this great classic when they click it. It's a great movie except the last minute which seems a little ... implausible. But the first 2h29 are pretty good to watch. ;D

Odd that you're including bus drivers... because you literally could fill this out with 35 options from the 70s alone but #shrugs.

And that William Friedkin's Sorcerer is a remake of The Wages of Fear (1953).

I suggest the guy who lifts weights in his truck, the guy who let his son jackknife his truck in the middle of the road, the guy who arm wrestles, the guy who sweats, the guy who turns his cap around to feel like a truck - the one and only Lincoln Hawk!

I need a Picture of a Man or Woman and a truck. I need them to be central to the story. Or at least a memorable part of the story. Currently the only exceptions are the 'Cars' entry and 'Duel'. The pictures you have submitted are much too dark and undefined. Plus you cannot see the driver.
