    Looked in YOUR dumpster lately?

    This, spotted in an unnamed FXFE dumpster, seems to rank high on the "unusual list".

    Is that a T680 cab?

    I remember the shop at TOL dismantled an old red racer once a few years back. The frame was rotted on it, apparently, so the truck was dismantled and scrapped.

    Looks like a city kenworth cab if that's what a T680 cab is? Never saw one in a dumpster but I have seen some in corner of yard.

    First of all, NOBODY dismantles, scraps and or puts Redracer in the dumpster...and there's nothing wrong with my frame!!!
    A few may have wanted to, or perhaps even tried, but I'm right here still chugging along!!

    Looks like a recycling dumpster. KCY usually has one of these for brake drums, wheels and all kinds of other items. You should see what's behind the shop in Harrison, all kinds of cabs, frames, engines, transmissions, etc laying around waiting to be repurposed.

    We had a Roadway district manager who would scrounge around inside the dumpster. He would find discarded rolls of tape, that still had tape on them!! He went on to become a vice president at FedEx Ground.

    That was Big Daves tractor. They had to cut the cab up to get him out of it last week, because his hat would not fit out of the door

    RC has seen the oversized pintle eye of an ancient Monon gear sticking up from the scrap metal dumpster.
    Thought it was something that just wouldn't die and was trying to escape.

    Sometimes I wish I still had one.
    Pulled like a mule and city drivers weren't man enough to drive it.
