Bought this a year ago with 306K original miles. 1989 Canepa T600.

This was 21 years ago when I saw it at a vintage race in Wisconsin.

This is the same truck when new. These are two postcards I bought in a truckstop back in 1990. Noted photographer Ron Kimball shot the pics. I also have a 16x20 with a third shot.

It's nice to see how trucking evolved from old model to newer model. It seems like the T600 never seemed to lose it's distinctive appearance, the same with the T800 series.

To me, the roof looks interesting. It's not as aerodynamic, a bit thinner and bits of rough edges near the side. I mean, it looks like a shark fin. The thought of cresting hills up and down from a perpendicular point of view could give an impression that there's "land-sharks"  ;D. Oh, it even has those Mercedes headlight wiper thingies. When was this ever a trend? Funny how newer trucks never have this type of feature anymore.

My truck is getting a bit of an overhaul right now.The main reason it went into the shop was for a broken spring in the clutch and new stacks.They ended up finding the kingpins wore out ,truck was pulling hard to the right,but now it sounds like they are putting a new axle on the front.Also fuel tanks are leaking a little bit by the straps so they have to come off and be repaired.It wil probably be down for a week,

It is looking good RobG. I have just returned from a 700 mile round trip to a Truck show driving a Pete 379. It was a very pleasant 16 hours behind the the wheel and nice to have a proper gear box at hand a 15 speed Fuller  and series 60 DD. Tomorrow it is back to the the dial a gear Volvo.        Bob.

  Sounds like that would have been a fun trip.

RobG. It was a good trip enjoyed every minute. It was made worth while as the Pete got a highly commended certificate there were 2500 trucks entered in the show not all looking for silver ware. The powers that be said that over the two day show about 90,000 people went through the gates at 65 Bucks for a family of four.        Bob.

This is my 1979 white western star. I'm the 3rd owner, and I'm very proud of how this old girl has preformed this far. We haul grain in the Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas area. Sometimes the loads are a bit heavy, and the days are long, but she hangs right in there with the new trucks. She's got a Big Cam 1 400, and a 13 speed. And if anyone happens to know the first owner I'd love to get in contact with them, the first owner had the truck stolen in Fresno CA around 1983 and never came back for it.
