  1. First truck I drove was a 4070A Transtar too, 1974. 290 Cummins with a 13 speed.
  2. We used to haul lumber from Drakes Branch, Va. up to Cortland, N.Y. It was a good run, I liked it but haven't been there for years.
  3. Fish, I saw fish too- catfish. The menu at a little food place at the Daytona Speedway. The prices look like they can be changed easily, they probably jack these already sky-high prices up through the roof during race week. The concession stands in the grandstands are probably even more expensiver.
  4. It was headed south. I took the picture in S.C. when traffic was backed up because of an accident. Couldn't get a very good picture, but it was behind a white 9400 International, didn't notice the name.
  5. If you go to Daytona to the race, or bike week, or just to visit, the Museum of arts and Sciences is not far from the speedway, and very easy to find, because I painted a red stripe in the street for you when I was there. Just follow the red line from the speedway down to S. Nova, turn right, the museum is down a little ways on the right. They have a planetarium, we didn't see that, but they have a lot of Coca Cola stuff, train stuff, the sugar mill and cigar stuff from Cuba, and much more. There might be birds near there too.
  6. I thought you would, and birds everywhere do too, knowing that they're equally represented along with the reptiles and mammals.
  7. I should have posted a bird- here's a bird.
  8. It really was, I took the pictures with my phone, but it was very detailed.
  9. Passed through Drakes Branch the other day, the rusty B-61 sleeper is still sitting there. I went to a museum in Fl. Two of them actually. I didn't bother to take my camera in because I wasn't expecting to see anything interesting. I was mistaken- I saw an R model in this Coca Cola display- But the neatest thing was this scale model of an actual sugar mill in Cuba. I saw an R model dump truck on a trailer on 95 too. We went to Daytona, this gives you an idea of just how steep the banking is on the track-
  10. Sorry for your difficulties Rowdy, but it'll get better. And I've wished over and over that i'd kept my 4 cyl. 5 spd. Ranger, one of- if not THE- best vehicles i've ever had. I let it go and kept the POS Dodge just because the Dodge was 4wd.
  11. I was in Florida on Christmas and some folks went all out decorating there too.
  12. I chained up one time to get from here to the beer store and back, a four mile round trip.
  13. My daddy had a 66 Chevy, 1/2 ton, long bed, 3 speed on the column. Had a 292 6 cyl. in it and it had the heavy coil springs in the rear instead of leaf springs. That's what I learned to drive on.
  14. And I agree, 100%.
  15. ...and she said "Awww tell him I said happy new year back ! Hes a nice guy.. and remembers me "
  16. Thank you, thank you very much, i'll tell Zina and happy new year to you as well!
  17. They make fine log trailers.
  18. Yes, same truck. They have his PIE Freightliner tanker and the GMC tanker that he was still working on in his video there too.
  19. A little over-cooked, but we did eat that turkey.😂
  20. True, I've been 5 or 6 times now, and I'd go back tomorrow. By the way, the barbecue there is really good too.
  21. Wow, it's already December- Me and Zina from Florida took another trip down to the Keystone Antique Truck and Tractor Museum Saturday to see what was new. Took my grandson too. Saw a couple of big Mack trucks. I think this is the one Dave was working on the last time we were there.
  22. I smoked a turkey, it only cost $4 and something at Food Lion but it was good. And no sheds were harmed during the smoking process.
  23. I have a new refrigerator coming Saturday. I've been meaning to get a new one for a while now, because the plastic bars in the door are made out of duct tape on mine, and the paint is coming off of the door in a couple of spots. So I ordered a new on from Home Depot, and then I found out I needed a new stove too. I found out when Zina from Florida told me I did.
  24. I still haven't gotten around to getting a replacement shed!
