When I worked in Logistics at Philmont in 1990, one of our vehicles was
like this (I don't know about the size of the engine). Because I wasn't
21, I didn't get to drive it much, but I do remember that at one point,
someone placed a bumper sticker on it:
When I grow up...I want to be a Kenworth.
(for those of you who don't know, Kenworth is a manufacturer of Semi
Tractors and other BIG Trucks).
I just wish I could find a bumper sticker like that for my Ford Ranger:)
I WANT TO GO BACK TO PHILMONT!!!!!!
