Nice Pull Truck

Doesn't miss a lick. This was at the Garrett County Fair in Maryland in '09

Re: Nice Pull Truck

Looks good, too. Now I'm looking at other pullers. I like this Stepside

Re: Nice Pull Truck

That sound sends shivers down my spine!

I pulled for three years with a 69K20 short bed, stock 5800lb class back in the 80's. I loved beating the super stock class guys with their 1/2 tons and 3.08 gears.

Re: Nice Pull Truck

I love that sound... that feeling! If everyone in the world could work together as well as all those engine parts the world would be a wonderful place!

Here's another very angry sounding one:

Re: Nice Pull Truck

Awesome trucks! I miss seeing the truck pulls. They just aren't as prevalent here in the PNW anymore. There are some pullers in the area, but have to travel quite a ways to participate or watch.

Re: Nice Pull Truck

It's mostly tractors around here, but the trucks are there, too. Seems all the pulling is biggest in the mid-west, truck and tractor.

Re: Nice Pull Truck

Love the truck pull videos I would go but we ain'ts got no's tractor/truck pulls round here. Here is what I think was an old tug boat I seen on a trip to Iowa a couple months ago? It's awesome seeing different variations and modifications of these old trucks

Re: Nice Pull Truck

2 Wheel pullers always did wheelstands pretty much through the entire run. Man I miss seeing the truck pulls!

Re: Nice Pull Truck

The sound of these engines seriously sends chills down my spine and makes the hair on my neck stand up. Always has.

Re: Nice Pull Truck

Hey, there ya go! Sounds and it pulled great! I saw it once, but hadn't found it since.

A neat little tip: In that link code, if you simply take the 's' off of the 'https' it will show in your thread like the videos I posted, not just a link.
