Like the pictures. Rain on the windshield and driving into the sunset with the Mack Bulldog leading the way.

I have driven a few Mack oil trucks and there is the feeling of guiding a road locomotive, so your avatar is good too. I would not want to get behind the wheel of that big tractor of yours though. It would be a disaster. I have seen how some of you can thread a needle with the truck backing up. Try that in the Olympics.

Maybe there should be an Olympics to show how skillful men in everyday occupations become.

These ol macks take a beatin and still keep on goin, id rather have these old trucks over a newer one any day...all the tweakin and twisting and just some of the places we walk these trucks around in would make a peterbilt driver run crying and hide lol...they will git the job done same as the new trucks...we do it every day...

I think that is what a truck rodeo is...someone correct me if im wrong...there is a thing around these parts called a bus rodeo for school bus drivers to do skill challenges and they win trophies and what not
