    When I grew up to be a big rigger, I always wanted to be a mater freighter

    probably several RC. I can remember climbing the grape vine slipping and sliding in 90 degree heat. And the smell. Those were the days.

    The old style tubs used to leak tomato juice. The truck stops made them park out in the dirt.

    They still leak. First rainstorm of the fall is always a thrill.

    Current policy states that if your bid is a slip seat bid, your truck will be driven by your slip seat driver. It is what it is.

    What it is...
    A complete lack of respect.

    There should be an option to send your favorite tractor for a rebuild and a heated Bose seat!

    They put speakers in seats??!
    After I eat a roach coach burrito, my seat sounds like the opening drums solo from "Hot for Teacher"

    Bose diversified and made a self leveling air ride seat for the big rigs. If you had one, your hat wouldn't come off every time you hit a bridge joint!
