    @FasterThanLight those trucks sure do have their own personality it feels like lol, and yeah for on roads you would need the class b license, but I would assume that wouldn’t be to tricky to get
    (I actually didn’t need one for these trucks as I’m just on the mill property rather than on the main road)

    @MrSilverWolf Those old trucks have lots of character. I'd love to get an old Pete 359 and use as a camper, but I have to get my class B license first.

    @FasterThanLight yeah I was rather sad when it broke as I really liked it, and they put me in a 1976 Kenworth W900 (it’s the truck in my profile picture actually) after that, but now I’m not driving it again this year as you could probably tell it’s a water truck, which don’t work in winter very well lol
    (The water trucks I’m driving are used to keep the dust down at a lumber mill, and they are so hilariously bad that they are great)

    @MrSilverWolf That's a real shame. What rig are you driving now?

    @FasterThanLight from my understanding it ended up running out of oil way faster than it should have, then it made helicopter sounds with so much smoke where I couldn’t see the rear wheels anymore lol The helicopter sounds were the cylinders hitting the casing and basically breaking apart internally from it and I was told that it wasn’t actually my fault and it was just time for that engine to go, it was all ready in poor shape, it was running on 4 if the 6 cylinders and would go through over a gallon of oil a day
    (this was it if you were wondering)

    @FasterThanLight that could be pretty cool, I rather like the MB, I actually drove one for about a week before the engine kinda destroyed itself internally lol

    @MrSilverWolf That would be cool but I'm working on a Dodge Bighorn that I'd like to complete first. The MB looks sweet though. Maybe I could build an MB fire truck.
