    Default Another one

    It's real nice to see another G749 come out.

    Hopefully you're going to get the 'other' pictures up soon. You know.....the engine compartment, cab, dash, roof, undercarriage, the back...........those pics.

    Thanks for saving and sharing

    Just got off the phone with MACCUS; they just passed by Sturgis with the M220 and are headed to Custer, SD.

    That looks really great. I'm trying to determine whether to build a camper from a deuce or a 5-ton myself. This just adds to the dilemma!

    Yea, I've been getting an update about every 20 minutes from them. Last word is its on fire. Before that it was just a mangled pile of steel sitting along the road. Then "Get out the check book, Papa Bear is coming to get it." Now he can't because he does not own a snowmobile suit and it is 6 degrees.

    Gene said it does have a heater and is working. Sounds like they are only doing mild 45mph. Trying to be easy on it. He noted the right front turn signal is not working and it was missing 2 bolts on the front drive shaft. I'll just send some from the other truck. So far so good!

    Just got back from a late lunch. Recovery was about 120 mile one. The truck is a very good unit. Runs well and is very tight with no slop at all in the drive train. It is a keeper. No problems at all just a slow drive home. It will drive the 700 miles to Wisconsin with no problem I am sure. Not to bad for a truck made in 1953. I sent 20 pictures to Dan and he can post whatever he wants.

    Papa Bear said he had no drivers that would venture out in 6 degree temperature. And I know he is a whimp when it comes to the cold places. So I had to suck it up and go for it on my own..

    Definitely a clean unit. I used to drool over that rig when it still belonged to the local county search and rescue. It sat under a roof all the time so it was in dry storage the last 30 yrs or more. Good Buy!

    Thank you. I'm very happy. The best part is It is sitting in Maccus's front yard. He emailed me a couple times yesterday about some things he has done to it. I guess I have new shackles! If I keep it there for a while, it probably could get all fixed up! LOL
