I think these trucks are really interesting, i'd love to learn more about them, as far as i know, i like  capacity.
You should maybe find a hobby or a sport, spend sometime outside perhaps.

Capacity have always been my favorites, especially the older ones, Ottawas aren't bad either though...

Im a fan of go "borrow" another truck in the yard to assist me, but if I have my choice i'd say Ottawa, never had the privilege of using a Capacity.

I believe my friend's dad drives a Capacity for the USPS, as they're the only jockey's I see around there.

What's going on in that second picture codyainey?  It looks like a tri-axle lowboy with a... congear? :?

I like the rest of the pictures too.  I hope to see more. :-)

A congear is a unit used to hook two trailers together, but now looking at that picture more closely, it looks more like a "jeep" used in heavy hauling operations, though I've never seen a single axle one.  Nevertheless, interesting to see a truck like that moving such a large load.
