B-61 twin screw day cab with 711 and tri-plex was my first road truck from Trenton, NJ to McCook, Neb. I thought I was king of the road with my power steering and 2 stick tranny. Hell it even had push button turn signal buttons, AM radio and electric sanders. What a beast.

I remember my friend telling me about when he hauled steel with one from the Sault. He said Hamilton was a 2 day trip, LOL.

I'd still rather have that than a new one.

Too bad the 711's didn't hold up like the 673'S :)
