wow what a rush,the folks that say the drive home was good or not special are full of it.
I have driven a lot of big stuff over the years,M1a1 tanks,deuce 1/2's,5tons and even hemitt's nothing compared to sitting behind this beast!
I was antsy at work and finally said it's now or never,turned my computer off and headed to Bristol
This is what greeted me
check fluid levels again as well as the floors etc
Ron (the seller for school district) said "take her for a spin"
I was like
,it is actually happening...i said i have never driven anything that has steer wheels behind me...
The mechanic said"hell I'll go with you"
So we jump in,i check the mirrors and pop off brakes and creep forward...the first application of the brakes sent both guys into the seats in front of them
i said sorry
talk about brakes...my lordy this is unlike any air brake military rig i have driven.
About the roads in Bristol,if you go off the right side,it's not good....period
after about 1/2 hr of driving we pulled back in...they offered me a job and said they were very impressed.
So as Ron was talking with some of the drivers coming back in,the mechanic and I crawled under the bus,he was showing me everything from the thickness of the brake pads and drums to the auto tank drains etc.
we went inside and he showed me new drums and pads..this really did have 3month old brakes on it.
anyways onto the journey home.
We did paperwork and they filled
the tank up with diesel!
