Don't we all love seeing these? Here's a place to see them run. I'll start off with this one showing many different trucks at an ATHS show,including good ole late Fred Craig's Cannonball (rest his soul):

Re: Jimmy/Detroit Diesel Videos

Good ones. Thanks for showing them. Hey,I was thinking,did I already do a thread like this? Maybe it was before this section was made? I dunno. I was looking for pictures and found a video that I wanted to post. Doesn't hurt to do a good thing twice anyway

Tim, I believe we just added videos to other threads, but didn't really have a video only thread.

I agree, nothing wrong with seeing them again, especially all grouped together.

Re: Jimmy/Detroit Diesel Videos

I agree. That 12V-71 was always one of my favorites as well. I first heard it on an Audio only site many years ago.

BTW, I'm wondering why our YouTube Videos aren't posting up like they used to?

I read somewhere that the long nosed Freightshaker is the owner/founder of Werner Trucking's personal truck.

I stand corrected...I saw the colors and Detroit Diesel. I was thinking of their FL Classic with 16V-92 DD.

Bill, on your post #15, it was a security thing. If you post
a youtube that starts with https://... (note the "s" after http?)
it will post that way.
Take the "s" out and you get the preview screen.

Don't know why it works that way but I do know it does because
that's how I repaired post #15

There. You were confused now we are both confused.

Thanks Ellen. Strangley I never had that happen before. Thanks for the explanation and the fix of the post as well.
