I like the T660, when I was a truck helper for M. Price Distributing, they had the prostar and the t660, and I'd have to say being in the T660 was much more enjoyable. This may be partly do to the fact that I feel more at ease in smaller places? I'm just a tad bit weird :]

It's funny what people think stinks... I grew up working livestock auctions, and on dairy farms. Even some hog and chicken farms. If you think a bull hauler stinks, you have never been down wind/stream from a sugar beet factory. Or you could just go to NYC.... lol

Last year I had to go to Iowa to pick up some new side dumps for a customer of ours. Well I was ok with Montana, Wyoming and South Dakota. Even though I only had to go into Iowa 40 miles, that area stunk like rotting grass clippings.

For me the bull hauler would bring back memories. I still would not park next to it just for the fact that a pretrip might be a little dangerous.

Pat, you are right about smell. One person's fragrance could be another person's odor.

We are really taught what smells bad & what smells good. Yes, a hog farmer can tell a lot just by standing downwind from his hog pen.

Want too try an experiment? Find the local Oriental market, where Oriental people buy their food. "Americans " might say it stinks. I'm born American, but spent several months in Taiwan. When I go into an Oriental store, now I know what smells good. Kimchi, anyone?
