    One of my god fathers K100’s I grew up with. Can’t remember exact year on this one but I think it’s either an ‘80 or ‘81. Pic from 1983.

    This one is a ‘77 double bunk and Cat powered. I don’t know if it was a 1693 or a 3406. He put 1.5 on it and sold it in ‘84 and bought a new Pete 359. I have never seen another one painted like this one. Special order custom job. Pics are from ‘82. This truck eventually ended up in a junk yard in Gonzales Tx. in the early 90’s and was cut up for scrap.
    He also had a black with gold stripes single bunk like the blue one but I have no surviving pic.

    2020 579 that I pull tanks regionally with. X15 Cummins efficiency with 3.36 rears. I had a 09 386 before setup similarly. I prefer the 386 with the old isx tbh.

    Do you happen to know the name of that gray or perhaps the paint code?

    Here are a couple of mine...This first one is what I started with. It is a 2005 Freightliner
    M2-106 day cab that I bought from Ryder. The truck had a C7 Cat set at 330HP/900TQ. Cat put a crate motor in the truck for Ryder and I bought it for $9,000 in 2010. It had a 27' box on it because it was used as a local delivery truck. It had a 312" wheelbase that I had shortened to 205" by American Bobtail in Rockwall, TX. I pulled a 53' wedge 4-car trailer with it for 2 years before I bought my first step deck. This truck flat out made me money. photo-20160322-121106695.jpg
    My second truck is a 2005 International 9900ix Eagle Cummins ISX-15, 13 speed and 3.36 gears. It only had 201,000 miles on it when I picked it up in 2017. After some engine work and tuning it made 657HP and 2189TQ in Pittsburgh Powers Dyno. 20180329_193630.jpg
    This one was a short term truck. 2007 Pete 379 Glider C15-6NZ with an 18 speed. It made a little over 700HP from work performed by the previous owner. 20171218_111551.jpg

    Is the chic actually the one repairing it? Or is it a photo op? If she's doing the repairs that makes it 10x better imo
