If The Freightliner's Arockin'... You Should Come Aknockin'!
This cab over Freightliner Powerliner was being unloaded at the Truckin'
For Kids Truck Show on Sunday Oct. 24th, 2010. If anyone can tell me the
year of this truck, I would appreciate it. The young guy driving wasn't
sure. He thought it was a '76 or and another guy was sure it was a '73.

Loading The Ole Freightliner - The Hard Way
*Watch In HD* I don't know if this truck had locking diff's or if they
were just not able to engage them, but having the rear axles locked-up
probably would've saved a lot of headaches this day. I don't know if this
truck rolled to the show on this trailer or not, but it looks to me, had
everything gone smoothly, that it would've scraped the tanks on the
transition from the ramp to the deck anyway. Luckily the bad decision to
charge the ramp when there are literally just inches of room for error
didn't prove fatal to the driver or that cool old 1971 White/Freightliner
cab-over. One smart decision was made there though, notice how the nice
polished reefer was moved forward out of the danger zone before all the
real drama started. Shot at Truckin' For Kids in Irwindale, California on
Sunday October 6th, 2013.

Getting the old freight shaker cab over out. The ground was a little soft.
Next time I'll shut off the other trucks in the background so all you big
straight pipe lovers can hear the 3406B through the bull haulers. :)
American Trucker: Robb Goes Vintage
Trucking enthusiast Robb Mariani visits a vintage truck show and learns the
history of the Freightliner.
One of the most under-appreciated jobs throughout the world is truck
driving. Dangerous roads, immense traffic, mindless drivers and difficult

the most iconic machines, routes and locations that define this largely
