    A week or so ago running across Oklahoma I saw a maybe 1980 working International Transtar [II?]kept mostly original from the quick look as it was going the other way. Brought back a quick flashback to my earliest days in trucks right out of high school. Good times ... a different era and a different mindset altogether.

    Example except I think the one I observed had steel wheels

    Watch that video.

    But why Tuck?
    Because it has no mega truck drivers or elogs and shows truckers speeding and tailgating and driving recklessly.
    Look at the poor lane control, every window licker truck driver was running right on the yellow line. No wonder tolls and taxes are so high because we constantly have to repaint those lines.

    Hey! I have a Valiant with a 360. It’s sort of in pieces but you get the idea

    They can’t make an updated version of that video today. There were no construction zones to speed through and all the trucks would be broke down.

    I drive the speed limit through construction zones and lower speed limits just to annoy everyone, and everyone passes me!! Cars, mega trucks and super truckers.
