Re: Trucks Are Beautiful

They really thought up some great stuff on the old trucks. It's sad to see the US automakers drop out of the heavy truck market. Growing up there were so many different trucks on the road.
Also,all the companies that ran their own fleets rather than contracting to common carriers. I miss all the fleet paint jobs. Now so many run white with some trace of the fleet colors in a stripe or other graphic.

Re: Trucks Are Beautiful

This has to be the coolest thread in a long time. I love those old Lane GMC trucks at the beginning. There's nothing like the bark of a blown Detroit. I'm assuming that's what is in them.

What diesels did the old Ford and Dodge tractors use in the 50's-70's ?

Anyone remember the Bandag drag trucks from the late 70's. I used to have pics from seeing them at the state fair a long time ago

Re: Trucks Are Beautiful

Yeah,you're talking about the drag trucks? Probably about the first ones,as far as I know. The Fords and Dodges ran an assortment of powertrains,but it wasn't uncommon fro them to run the Detroits. Maybe even safe to say mostly Detroits. The GMCs could have other power but usually were Detroits. That green Cannonball on the first page has a blown Detroit screamer. I love that truck. I got to see it roll out on a joy ride.
Here's a cool GMC. I wish it was mine:

My cousins are farmers and they got 3 olderish petes they use for haulin corn. They also do some haulin when they can.
