Agree 100% with the title of this thread.


Big rigs these days all sound like hopped up street sweepers.

Love vintage iron. I kept thinking the scenery in that video definitely looked familiar. Did some checking on the routes shown on the sign and see it was filmed in Dutchess county NY. Not far at all from me.

LIKE THIS--I am not a truck lover-but like the sound of that DD motor!!!I have some motorhead in me and love the sounds of diesels and gas turbines.I like the sounds of the engines in heavy equipment and large gensets-when I start the 2.2Mw one at work-love that "Growel" as that Cat 3816 gets up to its 1800 RPM speed!3000HP!!
