I know it's not thursday but wanted to put this up. Not something I see everyday. I came out of Jolly truckstop and saw a really cool 351 sitting next to my 358. Super nice guy owned it. Was from out around Wichita Falls and work the truck in the oil field. Put the Freightliner in so you'd know it was current.

359 ,er     this is another pete I bought some time ago  the one in the container is a integral sleeper and  slowly comin together , cab is nearly ready for paint and I think it will get the same colours as the day cab when finished

as for skirts I mocked up some n they just looked odd  so I looked up some old pic,s of daycab coe,s with a add on sleeper
most were hibinder dcf405 ,s n no skirts so I think I might just build removable a tray under there for chains n binders ect
these things are a bitch to work on but with the body moved back  n the sleeper up hi its made things a little more accessable
theres only  3 bubblenose petes here, this truck , my sleeper project and a basket case that belonged to gene lachance
that i got for a mate down here but I don't think I will still be around when that one hits the road lol

GF, Refresh me, is that the cab you had shipped to you in a container from here or am I thinking of someone else? I definately remember the bordello sleeper interior. You sure have a neat truck there, will you put some kind of skirt around the sleeper base or is it the way it stays? Anyway, nice truck and I like the colors too and the polished sleeper combo. Great job.

The pictures make it look tiny compared to the cars, etc. Or is that how it really looked?

This was on the Peterbilt Facebook page captioned as a Model 350 but it's actually a Might Mite. Link to the full size image here.

This from John Dameron I am posting this for him with his dial up he isn't doing that well, this is John's comments, I  saw a Peterbilt at Winchester last week that can't be right.  There was a placard in the windshield stating it was a 2000 Peterbilt 362.  It looks to me like it has to be a 1980 model or maybe even earlier than that.
