    This appears to be a conventional site. I know that conventionals are some of the the nicest looking trucks. Just the same the cab overs were what got the grit work done. No long haul here, just take that truck and get it done. I honestly believe that one could say that cab overs were what built this great country.

    Thanks much for uploading some of the worlds best trucks,imo.It brings back to mind a beginning when I started to get bit by the bug that gave me white line fever.It was the fall of 1970 and I turned 18.Went down to the N.Y. drivers license office and got my class 1 permit,as it was referred to back then.My employer had a 1964 H1000 cabover with a sleeper, an old Maislin Bros. tractor that had almost a million miles.220 Cummins with a 10spd. Thus began a career that surrounded me in diesel equipment in just about every shape and size.I ended up as a mechanic more than an operator,for almost 45 years.I retired but as any other carrier of the fever will tell you,your done when they pry your dead hands off of the steering wheel and gearshift, or the wrenches. Happy Motoring !
