Help Identify an 80s TV Show...

I can not remember the names of any actors that were in it, but for some reason I think that the big Australian guy who used to yell "OY" selling energizer batteries before the bunny came about was in it.

It featured this group of guys with a futuristic almost transforming semi truck on strips of highway. I don't think it made it a whole season, but Im trying to find some photos of the truck.

ANY INFO appreciated...

Thanks

The TV show was "The Highwayman", starring Sam Jones (the 1980 Flash Gordon) and Jacko (the big Australian guy who used to yell "OY" selling energizer batteries before the bunny came about). I think it was a TV movie first and the series followed. It aired around 1988-1989 on NBC.

Oh crap. I had successfully buried Jacko deep, deep in my subconcious. Hadn't thought about him in a decade. Now he's right back in the front of my mind.

I'll be spontaneously going "It'll soproize ya! Oi!" for the next several months. Thanks.
