I stumbled onto this cool picture last week

Looks like a Pacific Motor Trucking (Southern Pacific) rig.

Re: GM Semis

Great pictures. Especially like the last one. Chevy 80 or 90's. Wish they had Cab Lights, can't tell what year they are, but 1970 or newer anyway.

Looks like at least 3 identical trucks, probably a fleet order for P.I.E. or McLean if they were red. Budd wheels too. Is that a girl driving the first one? Cool if it was!

Re: GM Semis

I think oil companies were the only buyers of GMC's with the 702 V-12!

Re: GM Semis

I bet you're right! That first picture shows almost all GMs. I think that truck found its way into the Chinese underground
