They do some nice work indeed. I've been there in the past for Towing stuff. The only two non Pascar trucks on their site:

Well if anybody was wondering, I also watched that episode of shipping wars last night too. And everbody involved with that show is a complete and total idiot. None of them have any idea of what they're doing and they get paid huge money to screw things up. And I can't stand how they dramatize everything. Plus did anybody else notice how much it cost for them to bring the wrecker out to load up the F model? Yea, $400. Think about that in real life. If you called that guy and asked him to load up that truck for you for $400 he would probably hang up the phone on you. And that's just one small detail that made me hate the show.

But aside from the stupid show, I do think the truck is pretty neat and I'm interested to see the restoration.

I watched also. The guy who hauled Evil's truck seems like the only one who has a clue. Am I the only one who wonders how they get away with too many hours behind the wheel, hauling huge loads with "pickup" trucks, etc. If I treated my customers like the hippie, I would probably need a full time dentist. Somebody needs to let the kid with the van know that MacDonalds is hiring. Makes my blood boil!

Is that Dennis Mehan's old truck? I met him at the ATHS show in Auburn in 2005?? Super nice guy. I heard he had an accident and sold the truck recently. Is that true?

Second time I ever watched it, if it wasn't for Evels Mack I would never suffered through it.
