This forum is unfortunately getting side tracked with drama so this thread is no drama allowed

What was your first truck? What is your current truck? What was your favorite truck you have operated? What's your favorite type of truck? What is that one issue on your truck that you get over?

I will start Mack pinnacle, Freightliner Cascadia, Mack anthem, Mack anthem again, the issue my Freightliner that I get over is the my pin release doesn't work I have to manually do that.

Your turn

Also people in training can say what they are training in, what they like about the truck and what they hate, what truck do you want when you hit the roads on your own?

Also people considering trucking what do you want to train in and what do you want as you truck when your on your own?

First: 12 Int’l prostar, 12 Cascadia, 13 Int’l Lonestar, 09 Mack Pinnacle, 13 KE T660, 06 Int’l 9400i, 15 Pete 389 Glider, 13 Pete 389/ 15 Volvo VNL 730.

All were manuals except the Mack and Volvo. Maybe just me but I really did not care for the auto trans and the apparent difficulty getting repair parts.

I love my current Pete. I have spent several years making it the way I want it. It will last me until I hang up the keys.

Good thread. Since you asked...true story. 1960 GMC Minute Man III Transporter Erector. I drove one from April 1987 - October 1989. They were soooo cool. They had 2 gasoline-powered engines and were loud as heck. One was positioned inside the cab between the driver and the codriver. They have long since been retired.

LOL. Yes it was. There are a lot of pictures out there somewhere of me operating and working around them. But I don't have a single one of them in my possession. Good times!
