If you thought the Texas Storm Fleet video looked familiar, you may be remembering the intro for the 1978 film Convoy.
The movie was based on the 1975 country and western novelty song, “ convoy” by C.W. McCall and Chip Davis.
The film was made when the CB Radio/trucking craze was at its peak the United States.
The Texas Storm Fleet promotion is an homage to the trucking craze of the 70’s.
