1955 International Harvester RC180 road tractor. Very rare truck. Spent it's working years in the San Jose area. Got parked 5 years ago right across from the Oakland coliseum. When I came across it, I was told it was "running when parked"(haha, famous last words in old truck collecting). The motor was rusted solid and we had to pull the head and the pan; then to beat it like the proverbial rented mule/red headed stepchild,etc until the pistons moved again. And they did/do. Lots more to do; no brakes, leaking oil, etc but nice to save an old truck, an old binder. I'd like to get a shorty step deck trailer to load some of my other old trucks and cruise to a show or two. BD308 for you afficianados.

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.

Custom 1948 Ford COE Pick-up
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
I thought you'd like a look at this custom 48 Ford COE Pick-up. It's riding
on a 1 Ton Dually Chassis and it's powered by a 400 SBC. The bed is from a
2001 Ford Dually pick-up and it was narrowed substantially to properly meet
up with the original cab. It's definitely a unique vehicle, I hope you find
it interesting. Thanks for watching!

Stubborn Mack, Stubborn Driver
B-61 at the National Pike spring show, Brownsville, PA, May 17, 2009.
Driver was aware of the side angle when dumping, it's a scissors lift.
I guess this is why they call it a Bulldog.
