    62? Diamond T C.O.E. CL

    Tragic how all those UPS Diamond Ts and Reos got scrapped they were so well maintained! My cousins buddy had one of those Diamond T cabovers anyone remember Bill Sheffer out of Breezewood Pa? Ran Diamond Ts was a columnist for Overdrive also.

    Giant Macks in the Artic

    I may still have Dennisons Ice Road, we were flooded in 2012 during tropical storm Debbie and I lost a lot of books really lamented losing a hardcover 1968 motors manual!

    Giant Macks in the Artic

    Fellas, has to be out of print, but decades ago I bought a book at a library sale called Dennisons Ice Road, apparently this guy Dennison was the first to have a regular route long before "Ice Road truckers" that served all the little communities near the artic circle. There are said to be hundreds of pieces of mostly heavy equipment that fell through the ice as the drivers had no scientific way to determine the ice thickness early or late in the " season"!
  6. Haven't seen a "ragtop" dry van in decades very nostalgic!

    1970 Brockway 361 Huskidrive

    The first big truck I ever rode in was a 361 Brockway with a 220 Cummins and an Eaton " bogie" a five speed main and a three speed differential.It was in 68, a year before I learned to drive semi. The only other truck I saw with this setup was a crackerbox "Jimmy" with a 671 Detroit.

    Right after NAFTA passed the American DOT officers were kept busy with those "impeccably maintained" Mexican trucks! Lol!

    Dirty Hoods

    The LTL is a piece of art! Haven't seen one of those turn signals with the arrows and the little visors in 60 yrs! Let alone chromed! Speaking of "Off the wall tranny combos" I used to know a guy with a F 350 hotshot tractor that he swapped in a 5.9 Cummins with a ten speed road ranger! First time I've ever seen a Ford pickup with a ten speed "ranger" he had a little electric air compressor to run the range selector!

    New t shirt

    Reminded me of something I've been harping about for years,when is a truck not a truck? When it is a pickup! In many of the articles in the newspaper involving an accident where someone in a pickup is at fault (drunk driving,speeding etc) the article reads "truck accident, charges pending" when the perpetrator was driving a pickup! I'm thinking the average motorist pictures a thundering eighteen wheeler! My favorite is the Suburu ad "a truck failed to stop, and that's why we drive a Suburu!" The "truck" is not pictured, I can only assume that the Suburu protected its owner from the truck with its automatic emergency braking!

    Screw up Saturday

    I believe an automatic in a trash truck or similar "vocational truck" would be easier on the drive line.
