    Maybe in addition to a Mini-Schnauzer you should have a Labrador Retriever. They are eternally optimistic. Would provide a nice balance. :-)

    From conversations with Luke, he would design a trans-continental prime mover, with a spot for the Manx cats of course.

    Nice looking B-model. I would imagine it has a modern power train and not a thermodyne with a twin stick 5x4.

    I doubt that even Luke would have spoiled the cats that much. Besides, he thought electric was the way of the future, either battery or fuel cell.

    Probably mentioned this before somewhere.
    I never got the big boys truck license but had a ride in 1965? Mack once.
    That sucker had three sticks and no syncro as far as I know.
    The guy driving was a maestro juggling 3 gearboxes.
    A bit weird watching a two handed gearchange.

    I think your probably right ! That seems pretty bourgeois for a guy who seemed like an itinerant jack of all trades or Swagman.

    We have one up here an inmate with a Pete 379 550hp cat/18 speed pulling a camper :fpalm:fpalm

    [​IMG] This one was found in fairly rough shape cosmetically. It is a B61 Mack with a sleeper ( which was not that common really) ....The owner, my borther in law, and a long time truch driver needed a new picup to pull his 5th wheel with. Well long story short he got this a a decent price and did a great job of ,aking a nice rig out of it. He has done some shows for mack with it and it has racked up many miles over many years at this point. Decent mpg , great tire wear and frankly it will probably never be worth less than what he has in it. Yes it is a maxidine and is going well.

    Drone: Using "balance" and "Dave Big" in the same sentence is either an oxymoron or a non-sequitur. Not sure which; maybe both.:-)
