Spent a little time at the junkyard today, and spotted a couple of old COE Transtars on the lot. Maybe this will make you want to dig out one of those old Ertl kits you have stashed away!

Yeah, it is a touch depressing. B)

Who knows... maybe parts off those other two will help keep this one on the road! :huh:

G,day , i drove one in the mid 70's and it was orange with a black stripe around it. It was powered by 8;71 detroit with 9 speed box and went like the clappers ! But on the old hihgways here the cab kept cracking around the radiater cap door , it also had steel door trims and cardboardy style roof lining which made it hot in summer and cold in winter . We were an overnighter company so every week night we flew between sydney - melbourne , i WAS a young bloke and was in love with it .Cheers mark .
