Might make good hay movers for the farmers, They remove the top anyway. Job should be easier with the Thomas roofs.
Thomas used to be good??? What happen? did someone buy em out?

I recall Daimler-Benz bought out Thomas a while back...that might be why I haven't seen a new Thomas NOT on a Freightliner chassis (FL is also owned by Daimler) in a while. For that matter...does any builder NOT have their own chassis now? BB has their own, International bought out Ward a while back and now builds their own buses, Daimler/Freightliner bought ThomasBuilt a while back...anyone else left?
