But that don't mean she's slow.
There's a flame from her stack,
And the smoke's rolling black as coal"

Good Cop or what?

A truckers log book is DOT and required to be
up to date at all times.

When my brother was a Texas Highway Patrolman (30 yrs)
when he stopped a truck and everything was in good shape
he would let a driver slip on a log book. Not really LOL
He would take their DL and tell them he would be back in
2 hours.If the log was caught up they got to go.

This was when we had the chevy truck adds on the screen.. i looked up one time a couple days ago and noticed it said exhaust brakes.. Don't know how they did this and kept the noise down, but obviously they did..

I'm not surprised someone hasn't engineered them into a production truck before.. Should be interesting..

Came with a exhaust brake standard equiptment. i think most rigs have them now from the factory save a hell of alot of wear on your brakes.

Man what beautiful work.. outstanding.. couple of things.. what scale did you use, are the plans out there for this, or did you have to work them up, and any guess at how many hours are invested.. Really nice, and i agree with Lucky, love the look of the natural wood.. did you use a little wasco oil here or what?

Hey Greg

I have no idea of the scale . I get my plans at http://toysandjoys.com/. As for the time well just say alot lol probably around 20 to 30 hours all told. But I just worked on it in my spare time. it was a christmas present to him since he pays me to maintain his rig for him.
for the finish i just used a clear gloss so dust and shit wouldn't stick to it.
