    I'm getting homesick for the Kenmores and The PeterCars. The last one is almost K ATERPULLER YELLR. 0063.gif

    Maybe. When the Company started planning to eliminate the truck fleet they changed from Cat yeller equipment to white. I actually think so the public wouldn't notice them eventually disappearing. Everyone had white tractors.:slap::49::(:cussing::cry:

    Old Truckers never die; they just get a new Peterbilt.

    I mostly drove a Freightliner;) and for a long time a Kenworth. :)But a few years in between a Peterbuilt.:1st: All long nose conventional cabs. To me the Peterbuit was the Cadillac of the bunch.
    Started out with those short boxy Ford cab overs. :vomito:

    But, did you ever drive a Binder full of Le Cars?

    Le Car...less nuts than a French Army sergeant. I rode in one of those once. Completely unimpressed. 0-60 acceleration, oh, when I get around to it. Diesel Peugeot's accelerate faster.

    In the days when the show would go through one or two per episode just for the obligatory jump. I heard a rumor that the majority of Charger front sheet metal on remaining cars met that usage at least once in its lifetime, and finding an untouched chassis is now impossible, unless you go for a Daytona.
