Shaking it up today and starting off with video. By itself this GMC 9500 is an eye catcher but toss in Detroit with straight pipes and now you have a head turner.
Taxes. The only certainty other than death. Most of the time taxes are nothing but a burden but sometimes they result in cool machines like the space shuttle or this Dodge D800. Speaking with the current owner of this truck (or possibly his brother?) I learned that the purchase of this Dodge was the result of creative book keeping. Turns out someone was looking to reduce their tax liability for the year and bought this truck. Original plans called for a mixer or dump but that never happened. The Dodge went into a barn and there it sat for a number of years. Around 30 to be exact. Yup. Barn find. Right now a little less than 300 miles can be found on the odometer. Original stickers can be found all over the truck.
When I saw this Mack rolling through the show grounds I new instantly I had chosen the wrong career path. I should have been a welder! This truck puts all other service trucks on notice.
If blue is not your favorite color it just might be after seeing this truck. I’m telling you, it was a constant stream of rigs like this rolling around the fair. Loved it.
I really enjoy seeing period correct restored trucks like this White. Not too many trucks like this one have survived through the years much less one of this condition. Video to follow.
In the gallery below you willf ind a few more shots of the Superliner service rig along with the GMC 9500, a few Generals, a Diamond-T that sounded great but escaped by video camera and a few interesting haul rigs.
Murphy Excavating of New Hartford NY had a GMC 9500 that they pulled their lowboy around with in the early 80’s. Beautiful truck to see and hear, especially loaded.
At time the world was filled with classics…but nobody knew!
When someone writes an article he/she maintains the plan of a user in his/her brain that how a user
