So the alarm clock goes off and it's another day to be bright eyed and bushey tailed !!!!!
     Shower ,Toothpaste and  Coffee and head to the lot
      Pull into the lot and realize that I'll always rember this leap year !!!


  From what we can see now the cord to the block heater shorted and set things in motion.
    Thankful that a observant person at 3:00 AM called 911 and the Fire Dept. was speedy before things got worse.

  Well right now she  " Betty"  looks like she's done . She's a been a trooper and fulfilled the many tasks I asked of Her!!!

  So swap tools to one of our back up trucks and run calls while the boss set about looking for a replacement

  Seems like I was not the only one with bad luck today  !!!


                                                                    She's been a good  {556654 miles ) girl and will be missed emoticoncry.gif

Very sorry to hear about this when you called today. 556K+ towing miles, geeez........doesn't seem that long ago to me when she was brand new. Seeing as this was one of the few trucks Jim purchased new as a tow truck, my vote is to replace it with something brand new as well!! I hope your cloud has a silver lining!!

 Well with some looking high and low and not wanting to deal with new emissions motors it took awhile
but he finally found me a good woman .  A Kitty, and a 20.000 # frt axle and 328 inch WB.


     Now come the Fun part, Buying her a dress and turning her bud light beer can blue !

 Like to thank the boss for bending some to my wishes, we had a line on a t-800 but he was partial to the pete.
    But i got what i wanted on my end! 9055 Trident boom,  XP , coach boom and rear tater legs,tunnel box and other things to make her work smooth!


  Now hopefully John and his great team will send me some more picts so you all can follow along on the build. This one was sent to me 8.30 Pm on Sunday.

                                                                                                           Guess John Hawkins and his team  have keys to the building  laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif

Either yourself or another one of your guys was at the shop that night ( morning ) telling me about the fire . You or he said it was happened right before you guys came to tow the Penske out the yard . Wow that seems like it was months ago ! That chassis right there is crying out for a nice 50 ton integrated of some sort !! Good luck with it , but that looks like it is all downhill from here !
