    I own 7 Mack Granite dumps, 4 CV713s and 3 CTP713s.
    They put food on my table most days, but I prefer to play with old cars though.

    Think outside the box. Use your imagination.

    My dad was a trucker for many years...
    I went with him on some occasions in his big-rig truck.

    But me- I'm not really that much into big-rig trucks or trucking. I'd much rather work on old classic cars.

    We had our company christmas party yesterday. As a surprise, my boss booked a catering who rolled on the yard with a giant barbecue! Great idea, big show and the barbecue was delicious.





    Classic US trucks are always an eyecatcher here and they are rare. I like them very much. They are only used as show trucks. For commercial transportation purposes only trucks with flat noses are used because of length restrictions.

    Yeah I loved White Line Fever when it first came out. My dad used to be a semi truck driver in the 70's/80's and drove the awesome Mack and the snar nosed Kenworth but he said the Mack was the best. I loved also loved the movies Convoy and Duel.
    Here are some ok's truck moves. The first one is called "Prime Mover" which is what we call trucks without the trailer.

    The second one is called and is a low budget Australian horror called "Road Train" or in the US it was released as "Road Kill" and is quite crap but ok to watch.

    I can't remember the links I downloaded them from. There are a few crappy version on youtube but if you keep sorting you might find a good version.
