    70's and Today's Rigs

    I enjoy today's rigs and rigs of the 1970's. They both look amazing even though there are more new rigs than 70's rigs and they have more comfort,power,and efficient. I enjoy the way the rigs of the 70's worked back in their time. They ran through the 80's also and stopped around the 90's somehow. I enjoyed reading about the rigs back then also including looking through Hank's Truck Pictures and seeing the life of them. Here's my list of favorites from the 70's and Now:

    old trucks

    is a 96 considered old? if so it's #1
    i like the 70's w900a...driven a few of em
    even the 80's version of the w9 isnt bad....just ask brickman...he gets to drive one every now an then
    as far as the cabovers.....you can keep em....ive driven 1 or two when i was wrenchin (road test) and hated every bone jarring minute of it
    my all time favorite was driving a 1963 KW W900....first year of the tilt hood...had a bc3 cummins, 5+4 trans, aluninum frame and huge stacks...you could, no kidding, black out a road if you skipped too many gears...the only down side was it had an ancient holmes wrecker body on it, but man would it winch the guts out (we broke the frame twice while winching)

    Anyone have a pic of a RS 700 L Or RL 700 S Mack. It was an R model w/chrome buds and big bumper, long hood and chrome stacks. Pretty awesome Mack.

    I really miss the '79 W900A I used to drive. Notsomuch the Transtar II, though. Hated that thing. Was always waiting for that 430 Jimmy to 'splode through the doghouse. Froze my legs off in the winter, too.
