1950 Chevy COE

Nah, it's not a fast car, this is a working truck. 1950 Chevrolet Cab Over Engine dump truck plated in Oregon at 24,000 pounds GVW. Those are not cheap plates, though in OR they're probably cheaper than a lot of places. The bed is 13.5 cubic yards, with side hung rear doors for loading or unloading.

It's so homely it's almost cute and when it's on the job I'm not the oldest "tool" there. Equipped with a 292 cid 6 cylinder, a 4 speed granny tranny and split axle it can run at 65 mph on the flat, empty and loaded just about get out of its own way. In granny 1st with the axle split down to low range the engine tops out at about 5 mph so it can climb just about any grade loaded, but it sure takes awhile to get anywhere.

I like the old beast, but once you've driven it for about 4 hours you gain a great appreciation for modern equipment - that I can't afford... Since it spends most of its life parked on job sites as the trash truck it should last very nearly forever.

Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone
and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so
she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83
views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than
just your articles? I mean, what you say is
important and everything. But just imagine if you added some great visuals or videos to
give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche.
Excellent blog!

I am curious to find out what blog platform you have been utilizing?
I'm experiencing some small security problems with my latest blog and I'd like to find something more risk-free.
Do you have any solutions?

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page
layout of your blog? Its very well written;
I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
