8V92 Powered 1984 Freightliner Cab-Over At TFK Irwindale
Kevin of G. Young Trucking & Son is driving around the truck show in his
beautiful '84 Freightliner cab-over. The 8V92 Detroit Diesel under the
hood...ah, I mean cab, gave this truck even more character. This was one
of my favorite trucks at the show. Shot at the Truckin' For Kids Truck
Show at Irwindale, California on October 7th, 2012.
Lil' Blue Freightliner Cab-Over Racing At Irwindale
This little blue Freightliner cab-over was pretty neat to watch, as the
driver seemed to be having fun showing-off for the crowd. My video isn't
super clear and my memory even less so, but I believe the name on the door
said D.J. Arles & Sons Trucking. Shot at the Truckin' For Kids Truck Show
At Irwindale, California on October 7th, 2012.
The 75 12v71 Peterbilt drag racing! Very Loud! Very Cool!
Here is the 75 Peterbilt 359 that has the 12v71N and straight pipes. It was
recently replaced with N90 injectors and it now turns about 2600 rpms, it
probably does around 68 almost to 70 instead of 55 firewalled at 2100. 5:29
rear ends with a RTO-12513 single overdrive 13 speed transmission. Dual 6"
straight stacks, and very loud but good sounding!
Amazing Rally Race in the Gymkhana Drifting Semi Truck
Pro Racer and Hollywood Stuntman, Mike Ryan, decided to accept the
challenge of wrestling his purpose built Freightliner Cascadia up the Mt.
Washington Auto Road in the 2011 "Climb To The Clouds" in New Hampshire.
This video feature shows the amazing talent and commitment it takes to
pilot a 10,000 lbs. Semi Truck with 1,950 twin turbocharged horsepower up an extremely
steep and narrow mountain road.
Mike's time of 8:02.65 to the top was the 27th fastest time to the summit
and was a jaw dropping experience to all who witnessed the Gulf Oil
liveried Semi streaking up the mountain.
With multiple on board cameras placed in dramatic locations around the Big
Rig...ride along and experience the sights and sounds of a full speed race
run up this treacherous road.

2005 Freightliner Argosy Day Cab Walk-Around
This '05 Freightliner Argosy day cab is owned by Gardner Trucking of Chino,
California. It was pulling a trailer used to haul Rexam aluminum cans.
Though I am a fan of this rare daycab Argosy, the trailer had me just as
interested. If anyone knows what the length of this trailer is, please let
me know. To me it looks longer than the standard 53 foot units that are so
common. The fact that it's kingpin seems to be set back farther than most
trailers and that it's hooked up to a day cab cab-over truck also makes me
think that it exceeds 53 feet. I searched all of the tags and decals on
the trailer and nothing I saw said anything about lenght or cubic capacity
or weights or even manufacturer if I remember correctly. Shot at the
Truckin' For Kids Truck Show at Irwindale, California on October 6th, 2012.
1981 Maxon Front Loader - Bay West Rubbish
Bill and I met up with Manuel, the owner of Bay West Rubbish, who was
awesome enough to let Bill and I drive and crawl all over his 1981 Maxon
Top Pack. Excuse the sound in the beginning, I handed my camera over to
Bill and he put his finger over the microphone. (Its a new camcorder for me
and I'm still figuring it out and didn't realize half the time I was
filming stuff this weekend that my finger was over the mic! ) We tried to
document every single angle and aspect of this truck that we could because
it's no longer used on route. She has a Detroit 6-71 motor which sounds
beautiful and angry! Enjoy!
Smokin' Gun Diesel Drag Race Truck, huge burnout! June 2009 Calgary
Huge burnout and a pretty decent 1/4 mile pass for a full size former
highway transport truck.
Smokin' Gun is Twin turbo, Supercharged,
and InterCharged Detroit Diesel 8V92 1968 Kenworth drag truck. Just in case
that isn't enough power, there's also a 1200 hp shot of Nitrous Oxide to give it that extra kick. It makes
3100 hp to move 9500 lbs down the 1/4 mile in less than 12.5 seconds, and
through the traps at over 120 mph! This pass is a 12.91 103.35 MPH pass at
Race City... not bad!
