    that only means the old cats laying around will be bought up and reman for future use.i think they have enough motors in the industry to keep them busy for the next 20yrs.

    Last I heard PACCAR still had a lot of ACERT C13s and C15s they were looking to get rid of.

    You're not the same driver that had his Tn. drivers license suspended from Swift academy and had not heard of the school fiasco that had happened a year earlier, are you? Those little magazines and brochures you see around truck stops/ repair shops do have valuable info if you read them! An informed driver is miles ahead! :mconfused:

    No that wasnt me, And I would love to pick up those little brochures from truck stops but I dont go to truck stops as I will not be on the road till september 2010 when I turn 21. And I spend all my free time when not working 16hr/day 5 days a week talking to drivers and on every trucker forum I can find so as to learn as much as I can.
