Who was searching the truck his uncle drove it in the 80's. Anyone remember seeing it?

That Cracker box looks like Sunny's wrecker of Florida? They had Cracker box Tri axle with an 850 on it and if my memory serves me it was also a twin steer .... It was a real monster in it's day.. I would like to know where it is also.... Ok ... I'd like to have it also.... You know to add to the collection.... lol.... Stay well... Steve

I remember seeing that truck at a tow show at the Daytona Speedway in 1979 or 80. It was yellow & orange. Have pics somewhere.

Yes the truck originally belonged to George Monsour of Sunny's..The Dave Jones of Fern Park owned it..I lost track of it after that..It was unique to say the least.

Thomas..who is your uncle?..Dave,,Jamie..and Helen have been close friends of mine for years..I knew all the drivers back in the 80's..Guy Wood,,Chris,,Cajun Larry..All good people..

If I'm not mistaken, that bumper was filled with concrete and that truck was powered by a 671 too....
