Pictures of Big Shots

God Bless American Trucker

The latest crazy and completely unreasonable (well, unless pure greed is reason enough to halt economy even further) made  me think about where to fuel and I was just doing some calculations when all of the sudden this very happy guy somehow materialized right by me and at this very moment all my potential savings went thru the stacks:

I didn’t see him in my mirrors really which was surprising at first but it took me only 1 second to figure out why. Let me tell you this – I was seeing guys running this hard before but I can’t remember when. This is my view for another 30 minutes as I started to chase him to take proper shot. Problem was, my 565 was having hard time keeping up getting closer only on longer pulls

He slowed down to pull over to truckstop but thanks to this wild ride I noticed my pyrometer readings went down – for what we were doing exhaust temperatures stayed quite reasonable. Big motors need to breathe – I just wonder what happened to so-called progress in diesel technologies since I couldn’t keep up with 1981 Kewnorth and likely mechanical CAT. I just want to know what these folk were doing for last 20 years except making money pushing bullshit emission devices of course

Now, just look how perfectly The Cross fits that cozy space behind the sleeper, It meant to be this way, shots like that are impossible to stage  – God Bless True American Truckers, the Last Cowboys who know how to make a living doing what they love doing: working hard their motors to bring the food to everyone’s table
