    One of the worst things I ever did was taking the sleeper off that 66 Pete. I wished I had never done that, actually I wish I had that Pete back:(.

    Thanks for your input Shimmy, I talked to Cam Lavin and the best we could come up with is that it was an unbranded Truck Trailer sleeper. And the tag inside could
    have come from a California distributor or sales. But the one I had was odd because of the aluminum construction and most were steel framed.

    Please don't say where it is. I would be trying to bring it home. I've always wanted a mountain logger. Never had any like that around here.

    I left one pic out- that W900 has a 1693 Cat 325 hp. Originally it came with a 12V71.

    Funny... Gas powered Mack parked behind a Diesel Dodge. Which engine does the Mack have? There were a bunch of them. I've had a bit of experience with the 471's... a thousand years ago.

    IIRC the owner told me it was a 471. Those models make a nice pickup with 5.9 or 8.3 Cummins with Eaton 6306 6spd. I saw one with a custom built pickup box that looked really good.

    Have a little trip Monday to Jansen, Co. to look this one over. If it's in decent condition I will drive it home.
