    This truck obviously isn't working anymore, but I think its what you meant for this thread. Its the red & white cabover in the picture. The article in the link tells a little about it. 5.2 million miles!

    I know of a 62' model KW conv. that pulls a step deck that works daily running all 48 and I have a freind that runs a 66' KW daycab pulling an end dump that works it everyday in Oklahoma. I have seen several old classic rides at Landstar and Mercer and I know of one old Autocar that still makes the rounds.

    I also know of a 82 year old owner operator that still runs all 48 and goes back to the east coast on a regular basis but he runs a late model Pete 389. If I am still trucking at 82 I hope I have some good drugs to take because they way I fill at 41 I am going to need them.

    The last Marmon was built in 1997. Mine wasn't the last one but it was built in 1997!
