Bump to the top with this Swiss K100 now being restored by its operator, Friderici, which - unusually for Europe - had a fleet of KW and with DD engines, too. They use to run the Europe to the Middle East route which was as tough as anything. Pic by Ferdy De Martin.

Forgot about "Orrin" Isn't "Kidd" his brother? I wondered what ever happened to that project, I remember John had it all tor apart, then since back then I was running hard, not much time for "lurking", I lost track of Orrin, and the truck!

whole bunch of scrap iron! some actually runs! Most just eat money and take up space in my yard

Still here occasionally fella's, keeping an eye on ya. KW is still going well, love driving  that truck. We have upgraded the sign writing and lining, so here's a super flash picture of what it looks like currently.
Latest resto. project is a 950 RS Diamond T which I had pics. of on here a few months back, it arrived just before Christmas and we are into it now.
John was right about the earlier days, we had a good thing going then. I'll catch up with some of you in May in Iowa. Had a note from Orrin this week, remember "Big Blue" , sends his regards to you all.

I knew I had another picture of Murray's truck, with a set of log trailers.

Somebody must have hooked that set for a picture. Even a short set of triples wasn't allowed on the Thruway except for some tests that were done.

Bill: I assume this ran on the NY Through-way, although I never knew of fullsize triples back in that day.  Glee

I still hear from Murray every now and then. He's doing fine down there, working on more truck projects. He's a great guy! I think of John Evans quite often...wonder how he's doing. He was the very first person I chatted with on the old old ATHS board...the one with the tach and speedo on the screen!  Ahhh, the good ol' days!

Larry, remember when Murray started that project? He kept us all updated as he went along. Time flies huh? I can't remember what version of the forums we were on back then, ( I personally remember 3-4 different ones) but I remember John Evans complaining that the files were too big, he was still on "Dial up" and said it took about 5 minutes to get a picture file to come up on his screen! John and his Dalmatians! He was the "go to" guy for part numbers. I went to Phoenix and met him (and his dogs) when I picked up this 63 921 for Bill Donnelly, another "old timer" I need to check up on him. He was in a bad bicycle accident several years ago, left him in bad shape. He lost all his trucks, the KW, the Green & White Mack, and the one that got away (I was going to buy it, but waited too long) an L cab B-75 (might have been a B-73, not real sure at the moment) set up for a 335 Cummins and Spicer boxes from the factory.
