One sitting just the same as always and the other done so nicely it looks ready for today. It's all too much for my brain to handle I have nothing else to say. Gotta go back and let my brain catch up to my eyeballs

Re: GM Semis

Those fat cabs are just too dang cool. A Detroit takes a lot of shifting. Imagine all the shifting in a local haul dump truck. That was quite the truck in it's time

Re: GM Semis

I know about being bored. Been nursing cracked ribs a couple weeks now. My pictures are all organized. Just now getting to where I can do a little. Probably mess all that up loading for the truck show at Carlisle, soon as I turn this computer off. I'm just going to go easy.

Something different. Not a recent build

Re: GM Semis

Ever see one of these push me pull yous? I remember there was one sitting in a town north of here for years. I always thought about doing something with it, but what? Now I wish I just bought it and now I'd have a great truck for the antique shows. I never knew what it was till I found this on the internet. Coleman built these

Re: GM Semis

was wondering wat these coleman trucks did , looks like they where mostly used as aircraft tugs :
Built by two American companies Federal (F-55-AF) and Coleman (CF-55-AF) these tugs were made up of two GM cabs welded together, had 4-wheel steering and were powered by a Buda LO-525 6cyl engine producing 125bhp.
while looking for them i found these :


http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/PrintTopic22610.aspx
from the look of the website they where mostly knows for there 4x4 axles
__________________
i got a job again and having fun at it too

idea's for the trucks and the order of things to do are taking shape and get closer to being realized , a few more months and i be able to start building for real

i complete 2 of the trucks intoo running fashion one custom and one basicly stock the thirth will be sacrificed for parts

Re: GM Semis

That is way cool. I never knew about those trucks or that concept. I know Coleman goes way way back with 4wd trucks, then conversions. Cool pictures of a rare truck(s).

I'm going to run through the converted 4wd/6wd pictures I have saved

Re: GM Semis

Years ago, a friend of mine bought an old Air Force Coleman tug. It was a single cab model, but had the 4 wheel steer. Interesting thing is, the steering knuckle is inside the giant baby moon looking hub cap.
