    Coop Dispatch was verified by BRG Patel Consulting,as the first, secured order of the Tesla tractor with some additional options. The cab will be white,shaped like Big Daves hat,for better aerodynamics,with gold stripes wrapping around the cab,and located 15 inches below the roof fairing,and a steam powered engine using corn as base fuel,burned with sawdust,to heat the water to produce a literally pollution free engine.

    A 1940. He found it in an apple orchard, with a tree grown up thru the floorboard. Got it for nothing. Took every bolt off, took 3 1/2 years to rebuild.

    Here's his 34. Same effort. Gave $150 for it and a 27. Both sitting rusted in a barn.

    Jimmy, I don't remember what year IHC went to OHV engines, but the L models used a 220cu in Silver Diamond engine.

    I just know it's diamond. Probably the silver. He had a 190, and a 52 180 dump truck that had a Red Diamond. I was 12, so I have no idea..

    Whoops. Think the 180 was an L, and the 190 was an R?

    Good looking for sure, my dad put over 200k on a R130, all the kids in the neighborhood learned to drive on the R130
    I almost got hands on a 46 Diamond T but the guy's brother bought it from him.

    This person doesn't seem to understand trucking. The writer who wrote the words he is saying doesn't seem to understand trucking either. Is that why my radar on the truck tells the truck to SLAM ON THE BRAKES when it sees a construction barrel or bridges. A lot of people are looking to get into the trucking industry's pocket and I think we as drivers are feeling the effects of this con job.
