I really like my SMB, but....

...this has a little more head room and a few more ponies under the hood: http://www.race-dezert.com/cgi-bin/trad ... nd&id=1115

Wonder if I could convert it to 16-wheel drive?

Do you think it will get 15mpg?

If so, all we need to do is lower the price a little.

Re: I really like my SMB, but....

Yea, and I'm not smart enough to pass the test for a CDL Thus, I'll have to stick with my SMB, tiny as it may be.

I live ten miles outside town. Bet I could hear the bank's loan officer laughing clear out here, even with my head under the covers...

Good new! Register it as an RV and you don't need the CDL.

How do you think all those 80 year olds get to drive those monster 35' rigs down the road?
