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.
Dodge Army Truck First Run WWII 1940
First start and run of Dodge VF-402 1.5 ton Army dump truck; hasn't run in
probably 15-20 years (judging by condition of cloth-covered spark plug
wires). New battery and tune-up, oil changed. No ether. Ran good but
couldn't drive due to gas pedal broken. No, I didn't get it running before
shooting the vid!
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.

Cannonball A tribute to the GMC COE
This is meant as a tribute to one of my favorite trucks, the GMC COE's
known as Cannonballs. The music is from the series "Cannonball" that aired
from Canada in the late 1950's.
Junkyard Truck [S4 Ep.2-1]
On this episode, Stacey goes where all of us have been before to pull an
old derelict SEMI TRUCK ('69 Loadstar/International) out of a quiet
junkyard to demonstrate the steps necessary to get an old, neglected
vehicle running again. From rat's nests to chicken poop, it's all here as
Stacey slowly coaxes the old truck back to life. This show definitely
drives the point home that if something like this can be revived, there's
NOTHING that you should be afraid to tackle as long as you are armed with a
set of tools and a sense of adventure! Go get 'em!
Great Cabovers of the Past
This is something I put together in honor of the classic "cabover", or
"COE" style trucks of the past. You don't see these trucks much anymore
but these trucks paved the way for American trucking and it is truly sad to
see them being faded out. All of the different models of trucks shown are
listed at the end in the credits. Enjoy
