Let's talk about and look at the tractor trailers. GMCs were once among the kings of the hiways.

Love those Cannonballs. I knew,far too briefly,one of the nicest guys you'd ever meet who owned one...as well as many other old GMC tractors. Leukemia took him in a second round fight. His very close friend now owns it with great pride.

First picture is Fred enjoying the ride on what would be one of his last. The last one was at a show now that Mel owns it.

That's a heck of a load. I'd guess that load came out of the Fremont plant.
