....yeah .. good onya Jimmy for sticking to your guns.....and unfortunately copping heaps for doing so ....
...makes you wonder what became of the beast, or if it was indeed a success.....it may have been trialled and scrapped?? as nothing seems to be known of its existence or demise :-/ :-/
PS .. just in defence of binder here, he had a right to feel as incredulous as he did, as this unit must surely be unique...regarding a highway application with such a monster engine.....still we can all learn a little here....one thing being, decency to each other on our ideas or opinions on a very public forum.....
WOW!!! Alaska Frieghtlines had two wide radiator long hood Kenworths... Fancy that.
Gee sorry Kirky... but it appears I was looking at the wrong truck and it was "theeeee otheeeeer" Kenworth that had the V-12 Cummins.
Now thats the most sarcastic appology you have read.
Dectective.... I think Swishy has photo-shopped Kirky's six cylinder Cummins and replaced it with a V12 out of a miltitary tank and in doing so has moved the chassis rails out."CHECK THE SHADOWS!!!!".
Gee Swishy,you could of done better than those stripey over-alls....
Jimbo you can put away your JPY albumn now,personally I'd prefer ABBA and that doesn't say much for JPY.
Werk keep sending those pallet runners over the creek.
Well guys I've made alot of friends on this forum,but unfortunately it doesn't make up for the 15 plus year friendship I lost two weeks ago.I look forward to continuing all our friendships for many years to come.We all share the same interests and hobby so lets all enjoy it together!!!
Otherwise I'll just keep on readin books and feedin chooks and one day I'll be big enough to jump out of this tadpole pond.... James Cremona.
Gents ... everybody is entitled to his personal point of view, even if to others those views seem not to be correct. If this promotes discussion, that's great and we may all learn new things, which is one of the reasons this forum exists. Who know, through discussion the person with the original viewpoint may reconsider in light of the new information.
What is disappointing though is seeing the discussion move from commercial vehicles to personal attacks on the forum members. Before anybody pushes the send button in future can they please consider if the comment is meaningful to the discussion or a disrespectful comment to another member? If the latter, please don't send it.
I would prefer to have a live forum open for discussion from everybody, and not have people on the side too scared to comment for fear of being attacked.
