Do you remember that episode of Oprah where the entire studio audience received a new car? No? Me either. But I do know that it happened. All 276 people in attendance received a brand new Pontiac G6. What a cruel joke to pull on everyone. I kid. When I first saw this row of day cab Lonestars I couldn’t help but I think of the Oprah episode I never saw. I could even hear her voice saying “You get a Lonestar! You get a Lonestar!” Funny how popular culture works isn’t it? Clip for reference purpose only.
Once I wiped the stars from my eyes I was able to focus on this Cummins powered HX. I can think of two potential futures for this truck based on the front bumper PTO setup. One, a snow plow. Two, a rear discharge mixer truck. The grayish color matches local industry titan Riccelli almost perfectly. When was the last time you saw one of those new in the wild? It’s all front discharge nowadays. Or so it seems.
