Why do little boys love trucks?

I know a two-year-old who sometimes forgets my name (after I've been babysitting him once a week for six months) but can identify any construction vehicle. I once babysat for an 18-month-old who loved the Pixar movie Cars to the point where he cried if I turned it off. I know not all boys love trucks. I know there are probably a great deal of little girls who love trucks (though I have yet to meet any). I know that some people continue to love trucks into adulthood. But what's the appeal of cars and trucks to so many young kids? I don't get it.
