A 10-Speed Road Ranger in a School Bus.

1985 Crown with a 6-71. Of course he's skipping half the gears. Would had been nice if he went through all of them for the video:

Looks like he's shifting a consistent 3rd, 5th, 7th, then 8, 9 and 10.

Re: Jimmy/Detroit Diesel Videos

I agree. I can see doing that when picking up kids every block or two.

If we haven't seen this one, here it is. Short but sweet... on ears and eyes!

Re: Jimmy/Detroit Diesel Videos

I think he's on vacation

I have deep respect for the Australian road train method of hauling. Maybe it's more of a fascination. A whole lot of curiosity for sure. I wonder if they are the same trucks as ours that the authorities are just plain more lenient on or are they built on heavier chassis? It's like the wild west of trucking and I love it!

Here's a Diamond T 6v53 pulling double flatbed loads of round bales

Re: Jimmy/Detroit Diesel Videos

Sounds great. Love the distinct sound of a 6V-53. I just wish he could shift better, lol. Looks like he's got a 10-Speed Road Ranger. I also don't know how he didn't take out the mailbox when turning into the driveway.

The trucks there probably have high specs, but I believe they just have liberal length requirements, especially way out in that beautiful country they have there.

Re: Jimmy/Detroit Diesel Videos

Yep. Less people, less restrictions. Not that they aren't here, but trucks hauling goods are vital to life there. Personal transportation is secondary. What a great world!!

Re: Jimmy/Detroit Diesel Videos

I've seen it before. I think I showed it before, but not sure. It just came up when I went to YouTube and I'll show it again. I know nothing about this truck, this set-up, where it was filmed, or what it's use is. I know it is super custom and clean as can be. I think it's Brazil
