    IDK about Diamond Reos but if you’ve got the greenbacks for import/export permits we could probably snag some Freightliner Argosys from Australia and South Africa-a couple of them might even have twin-steer axles!!;)
    I’ve also seen a couple Western Star cabovers available in the Land of Oz!
    Inga’s off limits?!? Aw,man that’s no fun!!!:p

    The “new” digs at Jurupa Valley have plenty of room to park your car but with the way they’ve been storing old retired trailers,trailers needing repairs and of course the usual loaded and empties sometimes parking can be a nuisance.

    Those Australian Argosys are sweet. Problem is I think the steering wheel is on the wrong side, and all the gages are metric. Importing would cost me an arm and leg.

    A Diamond Reo will be tough to find, if it was easy I'd have Mobley do it. Here is your chance to prove yourself and at least get a chance to ogle Inga.

    Didn’t early 70s Diamond Reo have gauges above the sun visor?

    It wasn't me who did the cheerios but if you find yellow snow it was me, not responsible if anyone trips on it there should be some brown pudding too that's from the dog best watch them land mines too. Most companies are bad and you gotta play find the least toxic company and you just gotta pick one that fits you best.
    btw i am not just referring to Megas companies small companies can be worse.

    Some are decent either great pay, good family time, benefits. but any company that sends letters like that is just flat out terrible idc want anyone has say if someone goes jail so be it due to accidents don't need mess with someone whos down already I had a former boss did something like this company only hes dead one former employee decided to pay him a visit shot him dead all that money ain't gonna save you if you piss off someone too much

    Even the SS in Washington DC have a hard time protecting the president doesn't even matter who the president would be and people want to kick someone who might have lost everything they playing with fire. Not trying to bring politics but that's just an idea put your head there are enough crazy people.

    That’s no problem we can get US standard gauges,steering gear and dashes from the Cleveland,N.C. factory where they’re built-easy peasy.;)

    The thing is Randy also has trophies stored in his warehouse(which IIRC correctly includes a lion’s head)which means he’s experienced with firearms. Which would leave me to believe he may be prepared for anyone who might try to do him any harm-and I’m sure he’s had plenty of practice!;)
    Now,that aside there are companies that probably do far worse-heck, the FMCSA sends letters to drivers if they’re deemed a hazard to the traveling public. Don’t see anyone ranting about that.

    How about an arm from Mobley, and a leg from Ardis?
