And now, the bulldog of the fleet. It's mostly stock, except for the exhaust stack. The end was replaced with a car sidepipe to get a curved turnout. Its graphite gray and metallic maroon. I'm especially proud of the mudflaps.

I think they did reissue it a couple years ago, but it went fast.

This is the reissue, produced about 2-3 years ago by Stevens International. It was limited edition, I think only 5000 made. This was run alongside the Autocar dumptruck. It sold fast, and I was only able to snag one before the LHS sold out.

Thanks guys. I just got back from being on vacation for a week, so that's why I haven't been around. Trailer Mechanic, the exhaust stack came from a Lindberg '34 Ford pickup.

P.S.
I don't know if you got it, but just in case, Tim, YGM.
