A rare find indeed Ray. 8) There's one about 30 miles north of me that belongs to a crane company but it never sees the road. :(

Congrats on the catch Ray, it's very nice. I can't remember seeing many of those with the rear cab fairings, or perhaps I just never noticed it before.
Looks to be a nice candidate for a restoration project, hopefully it finds a good home.

Thanks Guys  8) This truck used to sit behind a Security Fence to the Right of this Picture, so i was never able to get a Good Photo. Also This Gentleman always has a couple of trucks sitting in front for sale. Like in this Case he had a Blue Ford L-8000 and White International 4900 Day Cab Cab/Chassis for sale as I riding by, but out of the corner my i seen that COE sitting in the back off the road. So i had to make a U-turn and get a couple of Photos of it.

Nice picture, thanks for turning around to get it.

Story-time;
 Back when they came out I ran into this gent quite frequently that had one, spanky new!
After a time he told me he had to wooden block the air ride for the cab as he couldn't feel
the nastiness of some of the roads we were required to run.
He said he was scared he was going to start breaking stuff.

Others say.......It was he was tired of hearing drivers call on the radio that his truck looked broken!

He was 270+ Lbs and that cab used to have an inherent lean when he was it the seat!!!!!Lol!!!

Argueing with a trucker is like wrestleing with a pig in the mud.
After a while you realize the pig is enjoying it.

I'd never tell you that Jim  ;D. Just some health related issues the Mrs. had from this past winter & she feels like she'd be more at ease being home with doctors et al nearby (in spite of the cold). We might just take a year off.......we'll see. :-\ As for me i'll be ramping up my Snowbird car delivery service through local advertising, Craigslist & word of mouth. I'd like to make as many trips down to Florida as possible & maybe spend an extra day with friends before flying home (I like warmth). :) I'm also looking to expand my delivery area & will include all the warm areas of the country where Snowbirds flock (AL,TX,AZ & CA) so we'll see what happens. ;D
