LEGO Set Highlight: 850 Fork-Lift Truck

850 Fork-Lift Truck was released 1977, and contained 210 pieces. It came with 5 other sets that composed the first wave of LEGO Technic sets. Although for the next 20 years Technic vehicles were built with basic Technic bricks, the year 1998 saw a switch from Technic bricks to Technic Liftarms and Panels; the style with which this little set was built would no longer be produced again. Still, the Fork-Lift Truck helped pioneer features (such as gears and steering) that would remain in Technic sets for many years to come.

MOC: U-Haul Moving Truck

The U-Haul Moving Truck was created for a LEGO City Vehicles contest a couple of years ago. While it is a fat, bulky thing, it has some pretty accurate details, including the orange stripes, the uhaul lettering, a pull-out loading ramp, and an opening back door. Also included is a couple of minifigures loading up a couch.
