Re: Trucks Are Beautiful

Although I never drove one, I always found those Dodge trucks interesting. Really like how you can get to the engine compartment on that single axle. Although there is nothing like a tilt front end like the tandem has.

Re: Trucks Are Beautiful

The 800 swing fender has a Cat V8 and the Big Horn 950 (only 261 ever made) has a Cummins and 13 speed.

Re: Trucks Are Beautiful

I like these trucks with production cabs same as pickups.At our Tri-State show there is a feller who brings like 8 of those. Nothing special but a wide variety of builds. One he has is a tandem jet fuel tanker with exhaust run along the front bumper. A couple other "beautiful" Dodges to look at

That first dodge truck sure looks similar to a Mack! I have never seen one like that before. Looks pretty cool. I'll have to forward it to my buddy who is into dodges. He possibly is going to trade for one like the second pic.

Re: Trucks Are Beautiful

Does anyone know of good sites that show the old trailers when the corners were rounded and not a square brick like they are today?

The old truck guys search high and low for those old trailers. It seems there are more trucks than trailers survived. I don't know of any trailer-specific groups (but probably out there), but the in old truck owner circles is where you will find the trailers. I see them for sale at the shows and in the publications. I get magazines from ATHS (Wheels of Time) and ATCA (Double Clutch) with free classifieds in the back. Hank's Truck Pictures is where ou'll find the most old rig pictures.

Re: Trucks Are Beautiful

I agree on the needle noses. A look that makes you stop what your doing to get all you can of it. You know one is coming at you as soon as it becomes more than a speck.

I think it's the same old cab that gave these trucks their bold new look

Impressive looking Dodge.

Probably Detroit powered.

Too bad they didn't make more of them.

Forgot if I ever posted this here, I don't think I did.... There's one of those Big Horns that ends up at shows around here. This was at the Lancaster Truck Show in Bolton MA.
