Your looking good Jim . Last night I dreamed about driving a 903 for the first time in 44 years and I could feel that engine throb .
I drove one with a 13 over at 25 hundred , and one with a 13 direct (or under) the man who owned it had it set at twenty nine fifty ! I had to pull over twice to let her cool running up Snow Bird . (pyrometer)

I'm surprised you guys are talking about ugly trucks and nobody mentioned the Dodge 1000.

Says the pink haired punk rock trucker from the mile "high" state......
That drags 191,000lb trucks over Wolf Creek...  8)

And, hey, I'm VEGAN, too!
(my bad)
 He's a pink punk trucker and he's a VEGAN, too!!!!!
 
Oh my, 37 miles of hell called Wolf Creek Pass, so scary, I'm shakin in my boots!!!!
 
Tap into that Pink VEGAN Punk Trucker Chi of yours and try to imagine this.

Cabover, no jakes, A train, 50 tons, winter, slippery, snowing heavily, middle of night, 8 hrs sleep in the last 3 days, chanting the company slogan over and over in your head, On the road and on time....... On the road and on time...... On the road and on time...... etc, ready for a nap but still have to drive several hundred miles on these highways and you ran out of goobers the night before.

The Canuckish version of I-70 and I-80.

No point in jakes if it's that slick, Willy.  ::)

Not real efficient sleeping that much though...  ;D

Drove a fair portion of Hwy-1 back when I was running into Canada. Pretty stretch of highway. More interesting than the boonies of Saskatchewan and Alberta.

I don't like McDonalds either, but some prime rib at The Keg, hmmm...  ;D
Tofu, tempeh, kale, and spinach for me!

That's not kale.

I saw a tree in SK or AB one time, can't remember which. ;D
