Good stuff!
Sure miss those old cabover's....my favorite was the Jimmie 'crackerboxes' from the '60's, running a Detroit straight 6-71 with a Roadranger. The sound they made running thru the gears from a stop, was chilling to me....sweetest mournful sound, this side of a steam locomotive whistle.....

I loved the old 65 KW with an aluminum frame and air suspension and air assist steering.
It was low geared so you could turn the wheel but without air assist you would turn the wheel for days just to go around the block
