    ya its been working a lot like i said we didnt get time to wash it. The first picture on the highway that from a couple of months ago when i hauled someone else trailer. I had to raise the front air bags because my oil pan kept cracking because the truck was too low. Do you have any more picstures of th truck. My driver told me someone took pictures of the truck.

    it used to load there a while ago. I haven't loaded in NJ in a long time. The blue truck that Bill had for a while used to be mine. Also do you know if SWTR is hiring companies to move garbage. Because i own a couple of trucks.

    I have spent an inhumane amount of time in this 1985 Freightliner affectionately named,
    "Rattle Star Craplica".

    snow 2012

    Im back barely we suppose to get a big snow end of Oct so my thought (me&another old man) was to lower my tailgate
    on my F8 down like a big mud flap to put the sander in, yep he lost his grip and the gate pile drove me in the ground,woke
    up in hospitol with wires and tubes stuck in me, so I plow for the town and still on sick leave, but my stuff got ready from
    son for 2012 see page 14. So I got a couple more to add. Atleast no more crutches. Sam

    well pete atleast your little freightliner is a "hood" the best description i heard of the new freightliners were calling them the frieghtliner cambodia's. cuz they were a horrible place to be like a third world country. also they were driven by people fresh off the boat from said third world country's.
