I spent enough time in them old trucks. No thanks. They are nice to look at but I need cruise control without pulling the throttle knob all the way out. 


 Same. I am ever so happy to see others restore and show off those old rigs. I'm a spectator, not a participator.

 If I were to restore and old rig to "roll coal" it would be a Silver 92. Double O at minimum. Take a torch to the "pyrometer" to discolor it, remove the glass and bend the needle, then put the glass back in and break it. 5anna4.

 If I could only have one option choice, it would be power steering. I grew up with "center point" steering and though it was better than the standard hub axles, power steering was theee option.

 "Those were the days" as they say. Absolutely awesome sense of community in the trucking industry back then. Yep............those were the days..........some great memories to recall when laying down outside on a clear, cold day staring up at the beautiful blue sky.

Who said everything in life has to be practical?  I've earned the right to have a little fun and I'd take it.  The simplicity of that engine, for the power, is one of the things that makes it beautiful. 

Don't get me wrong. I love seeing the old trucks on the road. I just don't want to drive them anymore. On the same note a family friend has an old peterbilt with the butter fly hood and 2 sticks. I forgot the year but he and my dad restored it in the late 70s. I was kid but I "helped"  If he ever sells it I'm buying it. I'm not driving across country with it. Just haul a little grain locally.
