The Duel Peterbilt Truck and Plymouth car chase and crash
In November of 2009 we purchased the surviving Peterbilt truck and Tank
Trailer from the 1971 Film "DUEL" The truck was built for the extension of
the film in 1974 and was a stand by truck for Universal to use in the film.
We plan on making some more films of this truck and we also have just
purchased a Plymouth Valiant to go with the truck! Stay Tuned!!
'56 White 9000TD: First Start in 18 Years
It took my brother, my dad, and myself the better part of a day to get
everything tuned up and repaired so that we could fire up my 1956 White
9000TD for the first time in 18 years. It only took two sniffs of ether
(one for each start up) to get it running. We ran it for almost an hour
while checking over everything, starting and stopping it to see how it
started on diesel only, to fill the oil system back up, and to check out
the hydraulics (no clutch yet, started it up with the hydraulics in gear).
1959 Kenworth 2 stick shifting practice - Part 1
When filmed this was the 3rd time driving my 1959 CC 925 Kenworth truck.
Has a 4 speed main and 3 speed auxilliary transmission and 4.10 gearing.
Engine is an NHCT 270 Cummins. Out for a short drive and to practice
shifting. Gotta learn by doing. By the time it got restored I could get
anywhere I needed to go without a lot of drama. Truck has since gone
through a significant restoration. See more recent videos to see some of
the changes. And yes I know I sucked in this video but like I said - only
the 3rd time I had ever driven it and was out for the specific purpose of
improving, started rough and got a little better but not much. Since then
much better. 2010 video.
1955 Peterbilt 350 Cab Over
This beautiful '55 Pete 350 cab over was being shown by Hofstee Farms at
the 2010 Truckin' For Kids Truck Show. Here the fenders are opened showing
how parts of the engine can be accessed from the sides. I don't know if
the cabs on these can tilt forward or not, but it is obvious that the front
area around the grill can be lifted up too. Of the 200 plus trucks at the
show this year, this was easliy in my top 3 favorites. I really love the
shapes of it. I wish it were mine. 10-23-10.
