    TRIVIA
    Released in December 1999, 18 Wheeler is a part of the Sega's 'Real Life Career Series', others are "Emergency Call Ambulance", "Brave Firefighters", "Jambo! Safari", "Airline Pilots" and "Crazy Taxi".

    Michael Jackson used to own this game (serial number U0098403). It was sold at the official Michael Jackson Auction on Apr. 24th, 2009.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Travel on the regular highways. Taking into consideration the road and traffic conditions, safely and smoothly overtake. Use caution! The heavier your cargo is, the slower your acceleration and braking.
    • Press the horn button located in the centre of the steering wheel and in front of the passenger seat to clear slow moving traffic off the road!
    • Hit the cars to get a three second Time Bonus.
    • Drive behind other large trucks to enter their slipstream, increasing your trucks acceleration and top-speed. (Slip-Stream) will be displayed on the screen.
    • Better turns: Instead of turning the wheel sharply and going into a skid, try slightly turning the wheel with the turn. Braking will not be necessary because you will not be skidding off the road.
    • Shifting: For Highway Cat and Stream Line, shift up when at about 50 mph.
