SIKU Mounty = Dodge RAM

A Brief History of the RAM

*taken from Wikipedia

The Ram (previously known as Dodge Ram) is a full-size pickup truck manufactured by Chrysler Group LLC and, as of late 2010, sold under the Ram brand. Previously, Ram was part of the Dodge lineup of light trucks. The name Ram was first used in 1981 on the redesigned Ram and Power Ram, though it came from the hood ornament used on 1930s and '40s Dodge vehicles. The truck is in its fourth generation as of the 2009 year model.

Dodge Ram trucks have been named Motor Trend magazine's Truck of the Year three times - the second-generation Ram won the award in 1994, and the third-generation Ram Heavy Duty won the award in 2003. The fourth-generation Dodge Ram Heavy Duty won in 2010.

I recently opened a SIKU gift pack which consisted of a SIKU Mounty pickup truck with a Go Kart on trailer. The SIKU Mounty definetly looks like the RAM. They have the same front hood profile with regards to the engine hood, grills, head light, fog lamps and bumper. SIKU may not have been able to secure the license in producing the RAM so they renamed this to Mounty.

I have more SIKUs to share as soon as I find time to shoot them. Thanks for viewing!
