Peterbilt Roadster
This cool ride started out life as a 1965 Peterbilt Model 351 cab, which creator Randy Grubb kept seeing parked in an old logger's place near his home in rural Oregon. After years of driving by it, he finally decided to stop for a closer look in late 2008.

Peterbilt Roadster

The hot rod hauler puts out 500 horsepower and 1000 lb-ft of torque at the redline of just 2,800 rpm. Rocking an engine designed to pull 150,000-lb loads, while weighing in at a mere 8,500 lbs, Grubb says the vehicle “could cruise down the freeway at 70 miles an hour at only 1,500 rpm.” There's no way it can pass emission tests, though, so it's future is solely as a display piece and an occasional ride down less-populated roads

Not much Chuck..

Funny you got as excited as i did about that peterbuilt Ivan posted, man that puppys cool, we had to go to Prescott today, and LOTs of hot rods on the road.. must have past 30 of them, and that PB is the winner in my book..

I just tried to open the "water board story" blocked so must be a "leftie".. As a vet i wasn't hot on the water board thing either, sorta sided with McCain, but smart enough to know two sides of the story..

Whats the latest on the Niece Chuck.. and hows the wife doing..
