Maybe not lol, they was chasing fast trips with fully loaded trailers and the answer they got changed trucking in Australia for ever
Whether you love or hate the screaming GM the 8V71 in the S model Kenworth was a game changer
Im guessing it was like the B model Back and the Thermodyne and when they cut trip times in half
I reckon the 8V71 and KW had a result along those lines
Your better to die trying than live on your knees begging
The big deal was in the depot by 6PM,delivered interstate by 6AM,and door to door by 8AM next morning.....overnight .......something seems to have happened since 1970,now it takes 3 days for interstate delivery,if you re lucky............Then there was all the claims of "airfreight" that never got above 3000 ft.,and the media fuss about trucks doing 80 mph. on interstate.
