This drove past me in traffic today (not a bus)

Pic doesn't do justice. This thing is MASSIVE.



Anyone seen this, or similar?
I don't care for the paint, but man this thing is some impressive machine going down the road.

This is our "big" truck. Its actually the neighbor's but I get to use it pretty much whenever.
This isn't the actual truck, but just like it except the neighbor's has a flatbed.

I've seen them around my area.
Most are owned by businesses with a logo but some are just by people with $ to burn.


Some of these are just stupid big.

Nothing ford, dodge, or chevy comes close. That was a real truck.

If any of you wanted a DT466 in a pick up truck, this is it.

It's a international MXT. Only made for a few years, and puts the hummer to shame.

Ever since I got an old Scout Terra pickup in high school I've had a thing for Internationals. Too bad they stopped making the Scout in 1980. The 345 in mine was great.
Thanks for the info nat, and I agree. The Fords, GM's, and Dodges just can't compare with this thing!
