Are those last two real trucks or are they carefully posed model/toys?
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Freshly flogged from Facelessbook, looks like the original camel trailers

The predecessor to the Kenworth K100 series cab-over-engine models was this truck known as a CSE or cab-surrounding-engine. These were developed to meet restrictive overall length regulations.

A bit wider than the average vehicle, the Kenworth Model 963 is an off-road truck used mainly in oil field work to move rigs and equipment. But sometimes you just have to get across town!

There sure is some impressive trucks in that video. I am partial to a Kamaz but with the politics being played out now I find them off putting. That Berliet from France was also impressive and I like how they used a Volvo truck to float it about the place. Then the big Kenworth. I thought to make a bigger truck you would need bigger components and for them to say they used components from other models was a shock. Are Clarke transmissions an option in Kenworths?

Found myself a new ute, or maybe a new ute for Swishman thanks to Facelessbook

This is a rare Kenworth model W300 featuring the cab of a W900 and a cut-down hood on a shortened 4X4 chassis to serve as a utility truck for oil field and other off-road work.
