The owner who is 81 was forced to retire because he has extreme difficulty getting in and out of the truck since he broke his neck at age 79.He's a tough old dude and a pleasant man to converse with.

  4. Wasn't the Condor James Hebe's baby? It sort of followed him around. I remember the COF-5370. Basically a wide Cargostar cab on a Paystar chassis.

  11. Can't disagree more with you. I've had 2 blowouts on steer axles. 425's each time. First time was a set of Michelin's that had 1200 miles on them. Going 65mph, the passenger side steer instantly exploded. No humps, bumps, rot or cuts. Never touch the brakes, keep the truck in your lane till it slows. Second time was a set of Kumhos that had 120,000 miles on them. They were wearing perfectly flat and smooth. They didn't hop or bounce and had no visual defects. The tire decided to just blow. No pretrip can stop that from happening.

  15. "The search for a suitable replacement for the aging [Mack] M123 series 10-ton 6x6 [tractor) lead to the purchase of some commercial models as interim vehicles. Known as the XM532E2, it was based on the commercial off-highway Model 8066 ["Payhauler"] by International Harvester, and used the truckmaker's own DTI-817 six-cylinder turbocharged and intercooled 375 horsepower diesel engine, with a torque converter-equipped Clark four-speed powershift transmission. Four ranges combined with four gears gave 16 forward speeds. A relative lightweight vehicle at 38,790 pounds, the XM532E2 had more than its share of maintenance problems and only remained in the U.S. Army's fleet about five years. Planetary gear axles were used with 14.00x24 tires. The wheelbase was a very short 160 inches, and the set-back front axle gave a 39 degree angle of approach. The XM532E2 was a relatively slow truck, at 31 miles per hour maximum speed, but the 220 gallon fuel tank gave it a 325 mile range. A 60,000 pound capacity hydraulic winch was mounted amidship for recovery operations. The tractor is seen in this picture coupled to a 55-ton capacity M524E1 trailer with a collapsible gooseneck, and carrying an M60A1 medium tank." .
