Nice looking Pete, Matt.  How did it ride?  What was under the hood?

 

It rode like words that cannot be used on this forum!!! :lol:

 

Actually Jim, it really didn't ride too bad unless I had a heavy load or a load I couldn't (or was just to lazy to  :lol: ) balance correctly, then she was like a bucking bronco! As for (lack of) power, she had a 425 Cummapart backed with a straight 10 and probably around 2.73 gears, I was too lazy to crawl that far under to look at the axle tag! 

 

All I know, since my medical issues are mended and I may be going back to work within the next week or two, I REALLY  hope I get a Freightliner or Intertrashinal this time around. The old Classic XLs with 470 and 500+ Detroits I drove in the beginning of my career spoiled me and that Pete or their Kenworth cousins can't hold a candle to those Classics!
