I GOT A RIDE IN THE REO TODAY !!!!!!!!!!!
« on: June 28, 2010, 05:59:10 AM »
Finally made it out to Utah and was able to hook up with Ryan today. What a great treat. Dropped the family off at the beach and went for a fantastic ride in Ryan's Truck. Very cool to tour around Brigham. He showed me the yard where he works out of and a tour of the pit. Since its been 30 years that I have lived in Brigham, things have changed. The pit he hauls from was a motorcycle park when I lived there. Ryan thanks again and you are a class act behind the wheel !!!!
I took some short videos of the ride and posted them on my youtube page.

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust if it wasn't for those " Bad Ass Peterbilts " the Hammer Lane would rust.

Great series, I find it pretty cool  that you got a REO, I mean how many of those does a guy see every day? :-D Not many, it's different, old, and cool! 8-)


BTW, I'll never get tired of hearing that Detroit.
