That was awesome. I remember the first time I heard an air start. I was walking in front of a Darcy Trucking Brockway when he lit it off. Scared the crap outta me!

Re: GM Semis

The Titan/90 sounded like it was Cummins powered. The guy chasing the hat was Dave Madden of Laugh-In and Partridge Family fame.

He was a member who would post on the '60-'66 GMC truck site. He did a wonderful job restoring that truck. I remember it being a '62.

Re: GM Semis

That's a big bed on that old truck. He'd have to have extra axles now days to run that setup. Neat truck

Re: 67-72 C/K/T-40's-90's!

Yellow loved the Brigadier. The had a few tandems, but mostly single rear axle, both high and low hood. Lots of low hood city tractors with L10 Cummins power.

Re: GM Semis

It seems Yellow kept the Brigadier alive. They must have bought half of all trucks made. They were a real world test bed for the model for sure. Wasn't that streamline Brigadier done with Yellow? Never mind, found it. It was Preston 151 Line. Wrong orange truck.

Re: GM Semis

Yellow and all the new car haulers. In the mid-80's, the Brigadier was still the best selling heavy duty short conventional, and that's why it stayed production after VolvoGM Truck was formed. I was told the 'old' Pontiac Truck And Coach continued building Brigadiers until sometime in late 1989 or early 1990 when that plant closed and all big truck production moved to Janesville. Wonder if Yellow got the last one.

Re: GM Semis

There's a good chance they did. And oh yeah, the car carriers. Lots of those.

The other day I saw a New Penn (old regional LTL) tractor trailer, which are dark green, wearing Yellow signage. The Yellow logo (orange background) was on the doors of the truck and trailer. It had New Penn on it somewhere. I don't see New Penn trucks often enough to know if they were even still around. I looked it up and YRC has owned them for a while and they decided to shut it down and consolidate. The article was from '19

What's not to love? I could see Mopar and Fomoco guys drooling over that one . Nice choice on the bumper. Not that the rest needs it but that really sets it off.

Let me see what I have here.......

Re: GM Semis

This was one of Fred Craig's GMC collection. He would bring them all to the show. He was part of getting the ATHS Tri-State show near Winchester, VA going. He passed away on us back a few years. A great guy and this Jimmy has been a favorite of mine for some time

I spotted this Jimmy Brigadier right as I got off work located at a truck repair place next door to where I work. Formerly Yellow #76826 I believe, I'd get more pics but I didn't wanna trespass.

I'd like to have one like that. You would think they'd be everywhere.
