My wife and I bought this 2007 Peterbilt last year.  I've already put almost 100,000 miles on it and had the engine rebuilt just last month.  I've been driving semi's with flatbeds, dry vans, refers, etc - and I've hauled everything -- steel, ice cream, building supplies, beef, produce, Shamrock milk, eggs, cotton, you name it, etc - since I left the Tarawa and the Navy --- 33 years ago.

I would hate to even think what an engine rebuild would cost! After you make enough to get out of debt with the engine rebuild, we need to find you a custom paint shop so that you can create the land version of the Tarawa.

Fantastic looking rig. Have you ever taken part in Rolling Thunder? I have a friend that did for a number of years before he died. He was a Viet Nam POW.

See you in August.

Haven't had an opportunity to participate in Rolling Thunder.  Would love to some day.

This is a Man's ride, and Larry you're the Man. You have a wonderful sweet co-pilot when Bonnie goes with you. A long ways to go and a short time to get there. A line from Smokey and the Bandit. So be safe and Merrrrry Christmas to you and sweet Bonnie.

Good looking rig, Larry. Are you bring it to the reunion so you can haul your winnings back to Az? 'I'm sure that we would all like a close up and personal look at your big rig.

That would be cool if Larry brought it to the reunion. Maybe the winners of the bowling tournament could cruise down the strip honking the horn and yelling as a prize! Heck, Larry could bring a flatbed and everyone going to the reunion could jump on back and be "limousined" around Vegas! I'm feeling… Party, party, party!
