We have reached a huge milesone, this is What Am I 5000. We have not made it every day since May of 2007. but we have come about as close as possible. Back when I started this I never imagined it would still be going in 2021. I owe everyone who participates a huge thank you for helping me to keep this going. 

So for #5000, we have a special "treat" of sorts. The Freeman and Security items I bought on ebay last year included an unadvertised surprise, a very detailed brochure for a make I thought I had heard of, but is totally unrelated to the manufacturer we all know that it shares it's name with. It's also not in any books I have. Good luck. Emblems removed.

Just like most nights, I have no idea, but I look every night anyway. While I have not been there participating since 2007 I have gotten many years of enjoyment from your posts. Thanks for doing it. Mike.

Congratulations on 5000 WAIs, Jeff. No idea on this one though.

Possibly #5000 could turn out to be one of the most brain-busting WAIs of all time. If it's not in any of your books Jeff, it must be very rare.

We have appreciated WAI, that's for sure.  It is a good chronicling of truck design, application, and culture.

5000? But 2007 was just.... Oh, snap! 14 years. A lot of changes but some names have remained. I almost never guess & rarely know the WAI but I look at it every night and check the answer the following night. Thank you for doing this for us Jeff.

Congratulations Jeff, and thank you for keeping us guessing for so long.  WAI 5000 reminds me of the Reeves Octoauto. But I doubt that Mr. Reeves ever built a truck.

Thank you Jeff for all you do with WAI - It is a lot of fun, very interesting and I've learned a lot here. WAI 5000 - Wow!
As far as this chassis all I can say is that it looks like a bus chassis since it has a drop frame (although it might not be) and it has Parker Hoopes wheels like Sterling used in the late 1920s-1930. But I have no idea who built this thing except that it wasn't Sterling. Quite a machine though!
