Truck yarō series

Before Itami Jūzō sunk his teeth into rāmen, via Tampopo, a whole range of “road movies” existed. One of the most popular was the Truck Yarō (トラック野郎)–truck rascals?–series. 10 films came out from Tōei between 1975 and 1979. As you can see in the trailer for the original here, the aesthetic is a little different…but look where they eat!
