Re: GM Semis

My oh my, just the way I like them. Soild and faded. Needs nothing, but shame about the hood. That's an interesting configuration. First, that type of body. Are those fold down high-sides? Then the sleeper on such a truck. Could be a repurpose from some point. Just makes me wonder what it's use was.

Did you already show this one? It was at the bottom of my picture pile. At some point I started putting ns at the end of the code and taking it ff once shown, but there are those pics I already had, haven't shown, and who knows!! Enjoy, once or twice!

Re: GM Semis

I'd say. Great company livery on that Crackerbox. That's a unique visor. Looks like a pull down shade!

Here's one from the Tri-State Show last weekend

I got a spam in my email with this title. I just responded without reporting it or opening the thread. I looked later and there was nothing actually in the thread regarding the crap in the email. Weird.

Those Crackerboxes remind me of Praying Mantis or grasshopper face. I guess those are the antennae

Weee bit overloaded? But seeing a truck working hard is a good thing to see. Our grandparents had no problems pushing the limits with everything.

That's a cool picture, but I always believed that it was "photoshopped".

Freshly cut wood is unbelievably heavy.

Also, check out the Front Left Wheel. I believe I see only 5 Lugs on there.

If I'm correct, it was pretty rare for GM, in my opinion.
