Truck shop what a great video! Ill bet the youngsters "driving" today don't even know what the "Monfort lane" is! That Diamond T looked like B C Frys triple digit 12 cylinder Detroit!

I remember the phrase Monfort Lane well at the same time on I-5 it was called the Far West Lane. Far West Had all black with a single gold strip W900A long hoods with Big power.

Little know fact the term Hammer Lane comes from a road that intersects I-5 near Tracy Calif. The highway sign read Hammer Lane Rd next exit, below that it read Not A Truck Route

no joke. I'm sure the sign is still there.

The last couple Monfort trucks I saw in the early 90s were pos generic Ryder rentals! Do they still exist?

Monfort was bought out by ConAgra some years back.
