Last campaign for "trucks" ended back in 2011. How about another?

Don't remember that one. What was theme? Only civilian trucks; pickups, tractor trailers, SUVs, farm trucks? I've got a bunch of large and small scale military trucks, not armored or gunned, would they qualify?

These were the Group Build Guidelines of the "Keep on Truckin'!" Group Build that I ran back in 2008:

Operational Overview
The trucking industry is the back bone of the transportation world. If you got it, a truck brought it! This campaign is to honor the men & women of the trucking industry from all over the world.

The Rules and Regs
1. Civilian vehicles only. No military vehicles will be allowed unless they are in civilian use
2. Must be a "work truck" of some variety IE: Hauler, Wrecker, Etc.
3. Trucks may be OOB, highly modified, tricked out, or whatever suits your fancy.
4 All makes & models of vehicles are allowed.
5. Trailers & loads are encouraged, but not required.
6. All model manufactures & after market manufacturers are allowed.
7. Dioramas are encouraged, but not required.
8. Have fun!

Contest Element
Build as many trucks as you like. Kits begun prior to the start date are allowed. All participants will be awarded a campaign ribbon upon successful completion of the campaign; one ribbon per participant. Kits finished after the end date might not be considered for the campaign ribbon

The last one was the "Over the Road" Group Build in 2011. Here are those rules:

Operational Overview
OTR - "Over the Road" campaign. If it travels on the roads, carrying a load, it's in. Straight trucks, moving vans long and short, dumps, mixers, flats, tractors, trailers, a combo of both - USA or Euro makes and models are all accepted.
This is a good time to button up that unfinished project as well, but try and toss in a whole build if you can too, with build pics for everyone to see the ongoing process and how you did it. Other's may learn something new from your build pics or vise versa.

The Rules and Regs
Any scale you like. The build rules are that it be either a lone tractor, tractor and trailer, stand alone trailer, or straight truck as in cement mixer/box van/stake bed/dump. Let's have everyone toss in build pics along the way too, so we can see the progress and process used. Time to complete the build is 1 year.

Contest Element
All participants will be awarded a ribbon for successful completion of this Group Build. Multiple builds are encouraged but only one ribbon per participant will be awarded

I don't know what Mike is planning, but it'll be interesting.

Would be perfect excuse to try something new, so I'm in if this becomes a campaign.
