Great thread TJ! Even though I figure this is more for the real ones rather than models, I seen you threw in a few diecasts, too. I have this old 1:87 scale B Model Mack I figured I'd add in. Sorry I don't have any real pics!

Sorry for the poor quality pic, too, this was taken before I learned how to use the Macro function on my camera! B) I'll try to get some better pics later!

That's sweet. i figured even though it is a 1:1 it is more for inspiration on builds of old and new and I have got some ideas from these die casts that I used on the drawing of my wrecker I did. These diecasts i have have enough detail to build a 1:1 off of. Thought I had some tanker pics. Apparently not online.

Here'a a couple of pictures of the old '80 F350 that we are currently using around the place here.. I have a '56 IHC as well but I can not find any pictures of it even though I know that I have some. And kids, don't try this at home without adequate adult supervision. :D :D :D

I did that one time, except with a 1974 White Western Star!! I was trying to pull a wreck onto a lowboy and lifted the steer axle 6-8 feet off the ground. I wish I had pics!!
