Hey yoopr, bout 6 years ago there was one of those Michigan dump semis with doubles that had a million axles on it If I remember right it was a W-9 day cab. anyway he did a break stand with it and just about smoked out the whole show, was that one of your freinds? Heard he got quite the ticket for it!

Just an off the wall question

No-they were all over the Road drivers-Really sharp trucks with ALL the bells and whistles

Just thought I would ask. you don't see very many trucks from Michigan at the show.

when I go I'll take my camera there and post them for others. guess I'll have to set up an account with photo bucket to post them. I'll even take a pic of the DOT man for ya In Wisconsin they do smile :lol:

yeah except for years ago the DOT Cop that ran the scale north of Green Bay. He actually "Escorted" me to the truck stop in Marinette one night. Let me "Re-work" my log book though :P
Now I think his Son runs the scale and patrol

That was the show truck that Blondeau from Marquette had. We were there that night. All he did was pull the johnny bar down and start grabbing gears. You could not see anything after that. After that they really cracked down on what you could do during the parade. It was cool though. He has since sold that truck because he didn't want to show it anymore. I haven't seen the C&J Barkhaulers at Waupun in quite a while.

This one was used for hauling topsoil.

Jumbo I was standing 10 feet from the drivers door when he did that. I was watching all the trucks come back from the parade. That was one [email protected]## of a brake stand. :lol: :lol:
