Re: School busses cut with torch and sold as scrap Texas

They are all made by Grumman the body not drivetrain and they use different powerplants.........

A friend of mine was a UPS man, 30+ys, says they will fix em until the metal is gone! then they crush em! thats it end of the road!

He says the new freightliners are junk, he had one of those on his rural route. He had the larger truck in the city, never had a problem. other than a big wind gust tipped him over once.

On a side note, I saw a newer FED-EX truck half parked in this guys garage who drives for FED-Ex, jacked up with the hood open and the tires off.

Couldn't figure out for the life of me what he was doing to it. Found out Fedex drivers have to buy and service their own trucks. Contracted to Fedex starting pay around $64,000 per yr.
