NNNBS is a bit ridiculous. GM needs to start something new.

55, 56, 57 trucks are called tri five trucks but you also have one model year in there thats refered to as a "Big Window".
Theres also a big window truck in the mid 60's series and another Big window in the 67-72 series.
Early 50's trucks are distinguished by "Three Window" and "Five Window".
It all gets confusing at times.

I vote we just call the newest style trucks
And leave it at that!
