My girlfriend and I are now the proud owners of a 1991 International 3800. I flew to Fort Meyers, Florida on Friday afternoon and made the trek back to North Carolina on Saturday. I must say, I was initially pretty terrified as I’ve never done anything of the sort, but the twelve-hour trip went really well. Before I knew it, I was cruising down the interstate at 70 mph.
Here she is before I set off homeward!
She’s equipped with a DT360 and an AT500, so I was pretty worried that she would be underpowered on the highway. No worries, she cruised just fine at 65 mph and sat right around 2400 rpm. Climbing into the mountains was quite a different story.
We’re really excited to get started as soon as the Thanksgiving holiday has passed. In the meantime, we’ll be daydreaming about all the possibilities!
