    Got this from my good friend Hank in British Columbia, Canada. He knew the people that ran this truck back in the day on Vancouver Island. He knows and has a lot of history in BC mountain logging and the big fat trucks. It's too nice to not post here. He said it had a 60 ton trailer. We are thinking it is a B87?

    And another now gone old local fleet. The black R was a fuel hauler tanker company. I know the owner but forget the company name now. The blue ones were Steel City Truck Lines. They were a steel/lumber hauler and also had wood chip trailers.

    Little did I know at the time this thread started in 2013 that I would end up owning the VL pictured in the first V8 reply! Here is that pic and here is the truck today.

    Autocar Trucks / May 15, 2019 “ Miss Lisa “ - Pumpkin Center Super Tanker Project The old ‘64 Autocar had ran a good race. She was getting kinda tired and slowing her pace. Put out to pasture for many years, her paint was a fading, weeds growing round her gears. Then along came a man who could see her potential. He didn't ask for logs or to see her credentials. All she needed was a little bit of love, some diesel, a filter, and a big strong shove. Just a few parts; some old some new. Soon she'd be rolling with a tanker from ‘52. New Flaps and Stacks made the old Autocar start to grin. A 250 Cummins will make her fly again. She'll never complain when she's out on the road, that you're standing on the throttle and she's pulling a heavy load. Just service her engine and patch up her wounds, and that NH 250 will keep hummin' it's tune. . .

    First off, I apologize for the poor picture quality. I couldn't scan them because the photo albums are so old they are pretty much glued together, LOL Anyway, this was the very first DMM tandem tandem mixer to arrive in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. A bunch of them were purchased by Downey Ready Mix (no longer in business since Lafarge ate up many smaller companies.) Before these trucks it was all DM600 and Paystar 5000 tandem's. And the old steel butterfly hood International R series before that.

    The other day I made a stop at Adelmans truck yard. I had to drop off some fliers for our upcoming truck show in Ashland. The past owner of my B model works at the used truck lot after selling off the towing company. He was out in the lot tagging some new trailers and I caught a glimpse of these well worn Superliners sitting in the back. The yellow one didn't look too hateful overall. The red one had a bunk at some time and a piece of lexan is glued in the hole. I didn't ask about them, as I have no use or reason. But if someone else is looking for a chassis give Ron a call. Typically they don't haggle on pricing. Ron's told me that before, that's why he doesn't mind "selling" there. You either buy it or not. They are not listing on their website, as they are not on the front row. http://www.adelmans.com/adelmans-truck-sales

    I was sitting on the front porch today drinking a beer or twelve, after I had finished my work or course, reading the book Old Bill sent me of his stories. I'm sure everyone here knows Old Bill, the "Diesel gypsy". I am so thankful that he did send me that book, because his website is gone, just like Hank's Truck Pictures, where his stories were also available. I started feeling sentimental, I hadn't talked to Bill since the last time, several months ago. So when I realized again that he was the greatest truck driver ever, I decided that I needed to call him. I got no answer, thinking that I had waited too long...but no, the phone rang a few minutes later. I thought it was a telemarketer, and was prepared to lay a cussing on them like they'd never heard before. But it was Bill calling me back. Not only is he alive and well, he had just gotten back from a trip to Denmark. He also told me that he has plans to go to the western US this fall, and some person in Tn. has also invited him down to visit, and offered to fly him in and out. We talked about an hour, and I told him that if he got to Tennessee I would gladly drive there just to meet him. Just thought i'd pass this along.

    If they can stuff a MP10 under the hood of a anthem and keep it cool in the outback there is absolutely no reason they should not offer it here. I just wish they would consider a proper sized hood for a big engine. there is no reason to stuff a engine under the cab where you cant access them to work on.

    Since there is a forum here for tractors, thought I'd post a couple pics of mine. This is what kills the depression of having to run new trucks. The 2013 Kubota is what I do all my mowing, snow blowing and bush trail building and maintenance with on my property. Great little tractor. It's done more work than it was ever designed to do, including hauling 330 tons of pit run gravel up these hills to build roads, one bucket at a time. And then last year I wanted to get into antique tractors and maybe do some pulling at the local fairs, so I bought this 1955 Allis Chalmers CA. I'm as of yet undecided if I should leave it in it's 64 year old working clothes, or give it a pretty restoration. I like old tractors done either way. It is nice to see them shiny and new, but there is something to be said for a tractor that has worked way longer than anything new will ever live. Just like with trucks....I love old technology. I KNOW that old tractor will start, run and work every day I need it.

    I saw a red truck this week. And it's seat cover season, I saw a girl in a car at the stop light- Then I saw another red truck. And I saw another girl in another car at another stop light- They always have drinks, snacks, and phones handy! And I saw this nail in that board.

    Just last Saturday evening, making my way home from a race in Cincinnati, I was on Rt 30 just outside of Canton. Cruise set at 65 ish, minding my own bidness on a pretty empty road. I come up on two cars running something under 65 and I'm too close to home to slow down. I ease out and get by the first car. As I approach the second car, it suddenly is going my speed. I reach down and push on the go pedal to keep passing(I'm right on their qtr panel). Nope, not letting me do it. So I click the cruise off and mat the throttle. I get up to 72(governor) and this young kid is pacing me right at my passenger door. WTF? I ease off the throttle and reach over to the brownie box and ease it into OD and reapply boost. I know he hears me because his window is down. I start to pull away. 74, 76, 78 mph....... I look over and he has given up. I blow the horn and keep at it. Surely near 80 and GTF away from this azzhat. Of course this clueless little chit is running his brights(those blue aftermarket bastards that are obnoxious as heck in low beam). I move over and he continues to fall away. By a mile or so he is ancient history and can't even find his stupid bright lights behind me. I've had to do this more then once. It's not the fastest truck on the highway, but I'm not afraid to go as fast as it can to get around someone messing with me.

    This statement is so true ! the money Made today. Is the same money that was made back then with all the higher costs of rigs fuel and other expenses!I have been in truck repair my whole life and watched as the most powerful group of people fight and scramble to race each other to the bottom . Had they stuck together they could have made a good living! Think about it ! everything moves by truck if the trucks stop rolling no body eats! pretty decent Lever from my way of thinking!

    Nothing at this point. Enjoying life for a change right now. Trying to decide between a few different options. It's pretty tempting when you can change careers and make almost as much money with nothing but a lunch pail.

    Forgot to add that since the truck is local to me I contacted the seller The price started at $6,500 then went down to $5,000, and then to a buy it now price of $3,850. I was thinking about looking at it but I don't need another project and it might upset the wife.

    Right on. When I started driving that's pretty much all I got to drive. Detroit power was big in this area. Nothing more odd than a Superliner pulling log trailer making 2 stroke Detroit sounds, LOL.

    I love it. Way nicer than all the other new trucks with their "automobile inspired" dashes. At least this looks like a truck. That was the only thing I liked about my Star. Old school dash and room for 20 gauges. Too bad the rest of the truck was junk. But even Star has made changes to the dash this year to make them more car driver likable. Pretty sad.

    Well I love it, the grill looks good compared to what a lot of other manufacturers offer The inside looks good. Doubt they will ever make it in RHD but if they did I reckon I might well stick my hand up for one I have read lots of complaining on the forum over the years about lack of US truck manufacturing, here's you chance Americans to put your money were your mouth is and throw your support behind it The same goes for the T Line truck Paul

    I've been tracking this...…… think he's trying to beat Elon to Mars, but he still needs his own "Area 51". If he applies for a no fly zone over the Maine Veteran's ranch construction project it's confirmed....Fuel, facility, military trained staff, on-site housing, etc.
