  1. Dan posted some pics several weeks ago of his WS still being assembled on the JOT site. Sad that Mack wasn't interested in working with him but the WS looks very good.
  2. I'm on both forums but am unable to make the show. Both forums are now talking about moving picture time. If someone here that is also a member of JOT and can make the shows could chat on both forums and come up with different pic times that would probably be best.
  3. Cam Lavin has one or two I believe. He's not a member here but I see him posting often on FB pages and might be a member at the Just Old Trucks forum. I'm not sure which FB pages I see him posting to but one might be the ATHS page & some of the Fallen Flags pages might also be someplace to look for him.
  4. Was there some discussion, years ago, about Watt's repop'n these?
  5. My farmer friend is a Deere guy but he has one Allis that has good Heat/AC so it does most of the manure spreading in the winter and ditch mowing in the summer. He also has an 806 and a 966 that do various other jobs around the farms and an old M and an H that each run augers come harvest time. I haven't been able to work for him for more than 5 years now because of my full time job but come silage time I always liked to run the 806. It's a bit brisk in the early hours but at least I don't roast in the cab of the 966 from 11am until we're done!
  6. This is the most authentic Rubber Duck there is. Dan Bruno put a lot of time & effort into this. It actually has parts from one of the original movie trucks and I think it uses that VIN. The trailer is one of two used in the movie as well. Dan sold the rig several years ago to Brad Wike who I think has since sold it and it may be in Georgia. On another site Dan did post pics of his new Western Star that will look like a "modern day" Duck truck. Single exhaust, blacked out, etc...
  7. Actually an Ultraliner (MH) across the street...
  8. ODFL has Autocar spotters. One of our two (hopefully our new 3rd will also be) is an Autocar and the guys really like it. It runs hard about 16 hours a day and the only real issue we have had is that the rear door won't stay open and the step catwalk directly behind the cab (against it really) has come loose a couple times, I provided some locktite for the two nuts/bolts and that seems to have done the trick so far.
  9. Some of that good, quality, Chicago lawyering..... Not only the Mayor but the Police Chief and Union are down right pissed off about this!
  10. I think they each weigh a bit more than 10K. I still carry some of my towing equip/tools on by K2500 Chevy and with my concrete ballast for the blade in the bed it weighs in at 7,100# without the blade. I ran it across our scale at work & it was 3,280 steer, 3,820 on the drive.
  11. We purchased 4 or 5 of these in the mid 1980's used. They were late 70's/early 80's models and they had the long grab handle. These were great little city tractors. Power steering, A/C, with a pup you could almost do a u-turn on a city street with them.
  12. If I remember correctly in 1979 the Pontiac 400 was backed by a 4 speed in the F body and the Olds 403 was backed by an automatic in the F body. I had two 1978 Trans Am's in the 1980's & '90's. One was a black Pontiac 400/Automatic and the other a gold Pontiac 400/4 speed. Both cars were a blast to drive and did fantastic "Rockford's"!
  13. When I'm having a bad day and wondering what could be worse I just simply tell myself "Terry, Look at it this way, you could be the safety director for Swift".
  14. In Sept of 2000 I traded the 1993 K1500 that I ordered new for a 2000 K2500 that was on the lot for nearly a year and acquired 46 miles moving snow on the dealership lot. Mine is a 350 gas engine but has the cold weather package on it. In 19 years I've put 191K & change on it and a few grand in repairs, tires & maintenance but it has really never truly let me down. I think I'll be rebuilding the transmission soon but I just don't seem me replacing it any time soon.
