    Ok since we are back in the swing of things... here is the newest truck out of the Novosad Ent. fleet...Randy Supak's new 2010 KW900L... you guys might remember Randys old Pete on post #9 of this thread, it gave Randy trouble from day one, so they got rid of it, and bought this KW...

    I knew you would come through!

    Does your source have any info on the power driving Papa Clyde? I have heard rumors, but have no facts.

    I thought I met Randy rollin across Missouri or Ill.about 3 months ago in his Pete. I like the KW though. What kind of trouble was he havin with the Pete? I had "fire" trouble with my 07' 379 so now the ACCERT 625hp C-15 is gone and a C-16 600hp is in it's place. I can walk off from a 625 hp now!

    Copy that, I dont know if it was the same one as you seem more informed than myself. it was the " Oakland " show at the C.O.W. palace and there were two trucks. One was inside and was a Pete turned into a convertible that was blue w like tribal paint and the kenworth was red and had a spread axle alum end dump. Both appeared to be owned by drug dealers or???? Guys who were clearing waaaaay more than the average trucking company. I assumed they were from the central valley. My interest is in trucks that have either been restored from the late 50s-mid 80s so anything outside of that really just kinda all blend. None of the guys I know are "large car" owners. I like the trucks that were at the Pleasanton A.T.H.S. event I attended myself. I am grateful there are guys willing to vomit money on the big rigs fer sure.
