  1. Anyone that knows me , knows I have a soft spot for International Loadstars. My father always had them, and I got my CDL on one. Last week I had a Loadstar Sundance cross my path. It has a special decor package that was offered in late 75, 76 and 77.(I think) It had an upholstered dash, door panels, two tone paint . The frame and wheels were painted the same colour as part of the cab. To me a Sundance was like a unicorn, people said they where around , but I had never seen one . Now I am fortunate enough to have my own Sundance. It needs a little attention, but

  3. "Rights" do not require the actions of others in order for you to exercise them. Speech (nobody HAS to listen to you). Press (nobody HAS to read your publications). Keep & Bear Arms (nobody HAS to buy them for you). Etc., etc., etc... Involuntary servitude was outlawed by the Constitution by the 13th Amendment, which is what doctors MUST do IF their service is somehow considered a "Right" held by everybody else. You don't have the RIGHT to MY services any more than I have the RIGHT to YOUR services. It doesn't matter if I am a truck driver, banker, mason, blacksmith, proprietor of a s

  10. Car & Driver / March 3, 2017 General Motors has officially agreed to sell its Opel and Vauxhall brands to the PSA Group as the Detroit automaker attempts to stanch more than a decade of staggering losses in Europe. According to a report by Reuters, the PSA Group (Peugeot and Citroën) approved the deal Friday, weeks after admitting it was seeking to buy the German and British brands that GM has owned for 86 and 91 years, respectively. GM and PSA are expected to announce the deal on Monday, and have resolved their competitive issues in China and the problem of Opel’s billi

  12. To give you an idea of the depth of the relationship, the Saudi royal family comes to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota for their health care. For decades they're rented a suite year round at the prestigious Kahler Hotel near the clinic, and the Hotel's parking ramp has a section set aside for their security detail's vehicles.

  13. I've heard that before about massive dealings in those countries, but never been able to see real proof. You have any links? A complicated Saudi / U.S. relationship, based on oil and money (duh!) predates the birth of Donald Trump. I am not up to speed on the details but the portion of the history deemed suitable for sharing with us the underclass is available. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saudi_Arabia–United_States_relations Thicker Than Oil: America's Uneasy Partnership with Saudi Arabia https://books.google.com/books?isbn=0199741174 R

  14. I agree Paul. But we've already been vetting would-be immigrants for years. Not too long ago, it took a year for my wife to obtain her immigrant visa, and subsequently "green card", as a result of the long time vetting process. How many terrorists come from Norway? And she has a U.S.-born citizen spouse. So we've already been vetting. The only difference I see here is that it's almost impossible to vet these people. And if we can't confirm the background from problematic countries................. Do you agree that the countries home to the terrorists who have killed Americans should

  18. I'm not a doctor. If I was, though, should I be FORCED to offer my time and services free of charge just because that service is deemed to be "vital"? What's next? Everybody needs food, so should farmers be forced to give away their crops, beef, pork, and poultry? Should truckers haul those commodities pro-bono as well because it is "required for life"? What about grocery stores and restaurants? Should they be required to let anybody who is hungry walk out of their doors with full bellies without paying? Doctors spend years going to college, medical school, completing their residency...re

  25. first thing i noticed is he was driving way too fast for traffic conditions, and not paying attention. second thing i noticed is his trailer brakes were not working. if he had working trailer brakes, that probably would not have happened. you can clearly see the tractor brakes locked up and the trailer wheels freewheeling.

  29. It's super high tech- a 20" box fan in the back window, sometimes a second one in the next window. Works OK, unless it's windy. Saturday the wind spun it backwards and the blew it out of the sill. Had to close it all up, so there was a little more mess in the shop. I've been using my smaller gun on these parts, my 1 qt. gun would put out a lot more overspray.

  30. Peugeot owner PSA to buy lossmaking Opel business for €2.2bn The Financial Times / March 6, 2017 GM cuts ties with Europe after a decade of losses in the region PSA has announced a €2.2bn agreement to buy General Motors’ lossmaking Opel division in a deal that will make the Peugeot and Citroën owner the second-largest carmaker in Europe. The agreement comes after months of negotiations between the two carmakers that have occasionally stumbled over the issue of Opel’s pension deficit and the ability of PSA to use GM’s electric car technology.

  32. Scania Group Press Release / March 3, 2017 We all know that as new truck models are introduced, advances are made in terms of fuel consumption and emissions. But it’s only when you take a long-term view that it becomes clear just how much progress is being made. Independently conducted on-road tests that put a 1992 vintage Scania Streamline 143 head-to-head with a New Generation Scania S 500 show this beyond a shadow of a doubt. Fuel consumption accounts for a significant proportion of running costs for all truck operators. This means that there’s considerable impetus to achieve ev

  33. I judge a man not by what he says but by what he does! Andrew Carnegie As most of us know Carnegie was no saint! But I like that quote! My grandfather was born in 1887 and he said that the wagons carried the dead workers out of his steel mills on a daily basis! Some claim that he built all those Libraries out of guilt! At least he BUILT the libraries! He came to America penniless from Edinburgh Scotland! Or was that Edinborough? Don't remember!

  38. I remember my test. The girl testing must have liked me?? Told me I only had to do ONE side of the truck on the pre-trip. "The other side is just a duplicate". Well, okay then. I had like 15 extra minutes in the cab to chat as the timer ran out. I forget what the time limit is? It is one of those nerve racking tests, for sure. Once done, you realize it isn't all that bad. I rented their truck so it was much easier on me to not worry about if the truck would pass pre trip.
