    Yes! (And - Doh!)

    OP, "Mack truck" is also an established allusion in America for big, bulky people who will blast through anything: "S/he's built like a Mack truck."

    And Mack trucks have a bulldog hood ornament - which you could mention if it fits your needs.

      Yup. That phrase -- and Mack trucks -- have made it down here.

        Try to avoid having a "massive semi" crash through the wall, because that will throw up all sorts of images...
