    Cummins X12 1750 torque 500 hp just right for on road/off, could be used in just about any category.

    Nice looking truck. Hope they do well with it. I have sort of a soft spot for Autocars, having run several back in the 80's.

    Notice the 70 plus ton winch hanging under the front of the one in the small photo. I would guess that one at a 100 ton rating or capable of a 100 ton recovery. The blue and yellow Acar has a 1701 Holmes unit
    rated at 35 ton

    A Skeeter! An amazing aircraft... Fighter, Bomber, and many more jobs it could do.
    Two Merlins and a pile of plywood...
