this is my new project for the 2010 show season. hope to debut it at the old dominion show in richmond. 144" condo, scratch built headache rack, lift axle, real aluminum wheels and a bunch more modifications. colors will be sunset mist, titan silver, gunmetal and metallic grey. this will be pulling a scratch built 48ft drop deck trailer. trailer will not be done in time for richmond though. here are a few progress pics.

Should be pretty cool when it's done. Can't say as I've ever seen a LTL9000 with a condo sleeper, but there's a first ime for everything!

In the eighties there was a guy, (Dan Campbell I think) had a 9000 with a 120 in. double eagle on Bekins. It was featured in American Trucker. Look it up if you can, it was quite a truck. Seems to me he won the use of the truck for a year if I remember correctly.

I like the paint work! Great colour scheme. You don't realise how big this truck is until you spend some time studying the photo's. The sleeper is huge!! One question did Ford make an extended hood version? Just curiosity!

Great Work
