I did not duck for underpasses but we hauled lots of hanging beef from wpg to mtl. Even thou the first cl's I drove did not have air ride suspension or cab the softer suspension and the height of your ass plus full power steering made a big difference. The trick with hanging beef was to get it over to the outside of your turn BEFORE you actually had to start the turn. I know that sounds odd but your turn in was 5 to 10 feet early. Hauling in in 2 26 foot pups could be wicked. Once the air ride was added it was necessary to learn a different driving style, you could no longer believe what your ass and the seat was telling you. Sometimes you had to just pointed the nose where you wanted to go and ignore your ass and grit your teeth, let all the wiggling sort its self out and carry on. The CL was certain warm and nice inside, The WT was not, but with manual steering and reyco suspension the old girl always told how it was feeling about the road and you felt you had better control.

Had a fair go in an LTL9000 with a 425 15 speed and I think they were 4.11s on 11R22.5s ....ex logging spec....  Good for about 110 km/h ... But would sit on 100 (truck speed limit here) almost everywhere, any load.

One of the more surprising combos I've driven was a small Cam 290 and 15 speed in a series 1 Road Commander ...  No idea of the diff ratio, but guess in the 4.11 range....  Had some real guts for what it was ...absolutely  blew away the S2670 Inter with a 300 in it that was floating around at the same place.

I also found the trailer that hauls the "The Famous Idaho Potato Tour" around the country sitting at the Maryland House sans tractor. I had a hankering for fries shortly thereafter. ;D




And i'll wrap it up with a couple of trucks that were at the Flying J in North East MD today starting with a sharp Lanita Specialized KW W900 from Mt. Aetna PA.


I thought of Paystar when I saw this Paystar 5000 mixer that's intransit. ;D

Glad you all liked the 359. :) So this morning on the way to Maryland I stopped in Carneys Point to get a few pics and lo and behold..........another 359. 8) This one was at the Sunoco fuel stop just up the road from the Pilot where I bagged yesterdays catch..........and it belongs to his brother. ;D Didn't get the year but thought it cool that 2 brothers are running 30+ year old trucks........now that's old skool. :D

The inventory is always changing with all sorts of trucks and well stocked!

I love going there in the summer!

That yard looks well stocked with some very solid trucks!! I quite like the GMC 7500 (light blue) dump truck. Great stuff!
