After readin Doug's and Wee Willy's list all I can say is WOW!!!!!!!!!, thats very impressive. Since I've known Doug most my life I do know he has driven a lot of different trucks. Good memory guys.
Ive mostly driven all your basic company issue type daycabs but spent the most time in Fords, International and Freightliner Classics. Oh I forgot about the Ryder standard spec Columbia daycab with the optional 1977 AMC Pacer windshied and interior door panels that somedays I drive.
