    I know exactly what your say'n.... ..Wore Out ... take everything I'am fix'n to say in this post as the highest level of a Compliment that can be given ..The good home.. I promise would be there.. but I couldn't take her ...LOL... It would be the death of my drive in life..If you asked anybody that knows me well (especially my Fiance) 1st....I have spent the better part of 15+ yrs looking for another EXHD number classic the hunt would be over I would have no challenge left
    2.. your 359 already has everything my list of what I'am looking for there's nothing to change...( thats no fun.)
    3...I worry I might worship her and not work her.. that's always been a pet peeve with me & it's not what you built that truck for either
    4... YOU. Built that truck I DIDN'T... JMO... but there's no pride in writing a check for somebody esle's hard work & blood sweet & tears..
    5... Neither you or I would be happy in the end ...LOL

    I don't like long posts and this is getting long ..I like this thread alot don't want to derail it or make it about me
    I've been gonna start a thread over on Trucker's rant's just gota find time to post it..about the 1200 mile ####show trip we took over labor day week-end looking at a couple 359's that were for sale & the tards that were selling them it's a whole story in it's self... I got picture's too ...LMAO

    Funny you say that. I bought my first one without much thought or talking to Dad. To show me a lil something he wouldn’t lease me on till I found my own work.

    I guess Unc took pity on me got me on with boxin Bob Conley pulling one of his trailers. I’m leaving out to get started the ol man walks out in the driveway, I stop he opens the door says “boy you get out there make a hand.”

    I haven’t always......but I do still try

    Amen. I remember my dad using that phrase several times. And if he caught wind I wasn't making a hand...... That generation knew what work was and it didn't scare them in the least.

    Look familiar? Unloaded Bertrand Ne last night 9:30. Back to load at Mt. Vernon at 7:07. I was 7 min late. Only 540mi.... Not a stellar achievement. Lol. 20210923_072320.jpg

    Best and least favorite part of the week come on the same day. Sunday is usually set aside for my bunch, but it’s also usually the day I pour myself in this ol Pete and get started.

    Maybe this ol white CAT has another week left in it

    Funny how nobody's mentioned even the trailer will try to kill you. That beam in the roof of the jailhouse will smack me hard every couple weeks.
