    Like the Jimmy and the Great Dane, would look good in my barn.

    Everybody likes that GMC, myself included. The owner invites everybody to get in it and look around. It's unrestored, has old oil cans in the side box, cigar box in the floor, just looking like it's working in about 1960.

    OD, how do you get text in between your photos? I've tried to figure out how but I can't.

    I write the caption first- let me back up, I do this at home on the computer, not the phone, which I'm on now- let me back up some more, I'm on vacation this week and adult beverages are flowing freely- I select all the pictures that I'm going to use first, they are saved on my computer. So I write my caption, hit "enter" on the keyboard- that puts whatever you put next on the next lower line. Then I just click on whatever picture I want, and it's under the caption. Hit "enter" again, next caption is under the picture. If you want the caption under the pic, just post the picture,hit"enter", then write your caption.

    Well I don't know how they compare build wise, but Western Star will still build you anything you want. I had a TON of build quality issues with my 2013, but my new 2020 is way better. And I've also talked to KW owners here that had bad ones also.

    But that's one thing about Star. You want a 6900 with a sheet metal hood, twin steer, all wheel drive with a big high rise sleeper? Sure. Want a Detroit? Yep. Want a Cummins? Yep Want planetary axles? Sure.

    I've just never been a big Peterbilt fan. Probably just because every owner op with a show truck had one and they all do the same look to them. There's only so many 300 inch wheelbase Pete's with bumpers dragging the ground, huge drop visors and wood stove chimneys for exhaust that I can stand looking at, LOL.

    I like the small cab KW's....but not the current dash.

    I'm with you, I like the KW cab. Drove a big "gussied up" -as Jerry Clower would say- Peterbilt for several years, and they're over rated in my opinion. I like the look of a W9 better. Those new Western Stars are really good looking trucks too, but i've never driven a Western Star.

    AND? I've had mine since 1989 injected, computer controlled V6 4 speed and only put 40,000 on it in 30 years. You don't want it I'll come pick it up.

    I just want it to run so I can actually use it, got lots of stuff I need to haul. If the distributor and or computer doesn't fix it, I give up- I'll give you a call.

    I saw a grey machine OD that looked identical (except in color) to the green machine you took pics of and it was grinding asphalt before they widened the highway. Maybe that machine is mixing/grinding that stuff being spread into the ground?  Nice Kubota by the way. 

    There was a thing under the green machine that was turning, like a big paddle wheel.

    Never did see too many of those with the 239 V6, (3.9ltr) engine around here in 4X4. There were plenty of V8 powered trucks however. Nice to see one not all eaten up as any around here are.

    Yes, I saw it sitting by the road with a "for sale" sign on it. I thought "that's a nice looking little Dodge right there". Short bed Chevrolets are everywhere, don't see that many Dodges. So I turned around and went back to look at it. Crawled up under it, bone dry front to back, all 4 tires wearing even. Next thing you know, I had called the number. And before I knew it I bought the danged thing. Had it over 3 years now, probably haven't put 300 miles on it.

    Seen that scenario maybe half a dozen times through the years and it's consistently been the ignition pickup module inside the distributor. Change both the pickup and the reluctor wheel, (part that looks like a gear mounted to the rotating shaft) and you have a good chance of success. Don't forget to slather on a coating of heat conducting grease to the bottom of the pickup module to help it cool itself. That is to repair it yourself. Other option is to purchase a reman distributor complete and simply install as all new bushings and reground shaft will be included.

    If going the reman route I would go with a Pertronix retrofit and kiss ignition problems goodby forever for just a few more dollars.

    Well thank you very much for that info! It has a V6 in it,4 speed, and runs very good except for when it has those spells.

    Is his drive tire mounted backwards? Or is that better on pavement vs dirt?   .....Hippy

    They are indeed backwards, I didn't even notice it.

    Well, that sucks!  

    Didn't remember what year it was but sort of thought it was pre computer.  Hope you get it handled because it looks a little too good to become a toaster.

    It's a 91, from what I understand it's the first year of the computer and the throttle body injection that it has. Good looking little truck, but it will just quit at any given time, just like you cut the key off, then it'll come right back to life. Been doing it since I had it, you never know when it's going to do it. Might go weeks trouble free, or you might not get out of the drive way before it starts. I've replaced every sensor on it, some twice, still does it.

    I just got it from a shop in Concord a couple of weeks ago, the guy said he fooled with the timing some, and drove it a while and it never missed a beat, said it was fixed. But, like I said, that's how it does, and i'm pretty sure the timing has nothing to do with it, it would run bad all the time if it was the timing, not just once in a while for a few seconds.

    Ha!  Have a safe trip up.  A car will be more comfortable but the Dodge pickup would look great on the show field.

    That Dodge is over at the shop in Concord, I'm going to drive it home Wednesday so she can bring the car. I don't know if it would make it to Macungie, I don't even know if it will make it the 26 miles here. It's been in one garage or another ever since I got it, and nobody can fix it. I think I might order a new computer thing, the ECM? I looked online, you can still get them for that make, model, and engine for $129. If that doesn't fix it i'll sell it for scrap, or whatever I can get out of it. I've already spent about $10,000,000 on it, mostly for nothing.

    Fyi redheads will turn you into an old man I know been with one for 32 year lol wouldn't have any other lol post truck pics please cause  we re behind and can't take time off damn rain

    I always take tons of pictures, but she has a new super-powered camera that she got for Christmas that she's going to bring. I would need like a 3,000mm lens that cost thousands to have the zoom capability of her camera, it's pretty awesome. Not that you need that much zoom for a truck show, but it's nice to have if you do need it. She's taken some incredible bird pictures with it.

    It will take close-ups like this-


    And check this bird out. I don't know how far away it was, but you can see the tiny water drops on it's feathers.


    Heckuva camera. And it rained all night, it's raining now, and I think they're calling for rain until Tuesday here. About like last year, we were over 2 feet above normal rainfall for the year. I don't know where we're at this year, I don't get the paper anymore.

    Is the redhead visiting Macungie this year... 

    Are you and the redhead visiting Macungie this year?

    Yes, she is. 

    I'm planning to be there too. She's very excited, she said she would go if I didn't, she has friends there now.

  14. I wish you could make it to Macungie Bob, there's an entirely different attitude.

    Might as well put my 2 cents in- I went to an ATHS Show in Winchester in 2005 or 2006, took lots of pictures, sent them to Old Bill. He scanned them- this was before I even had a digital camera,  I had a 35mm Nikon film camera- and put them on his website, and added a link to the ATHS website. Somebody, don't remember who, I think it was Mike somebody, from the ATHS contacted me, wanted me and Old Bill both to come to Winchester the next year- on them. They said they also wanted me to take the pictures again. I said that'd be great!

    Didn't hear from them for a while, then when I asked about what they had said before they were like "who the hell are you?".

    I did send them pictures from different shows for their website after that, several times, but nobody ever even said thanks for the pictures or anything, and they were posted by some other guy, can't remember his name either or i'd call it, as if they were his own. So now I read the magazine when it comes, but I don't send them anything at all.

  15. Great pictures Bob, thanks for posting! I like the day cab K100 and I always liked the Hayes with the big "H" made into the hood, good looking trucks.
