    I saw the post on purchasing the package cars, but what about the tractors? Does anybody know if UPS sells them? If so where?

    I'd like to know who would WANT em and for what possible purpose except for truck demo derby.

    I believe you will find that the tractors are crushed also.

    Save your money. They are pretty much used up at the end of the line. Anyways, UPS scraps them out .

    They're scrapped here. I wouldn't buy one-only for a demolition derby. The spindles on the rear of our Macks were replaced saving the company thousands. IMHO that's good so I won't have to worry about driving the uncomfortable, noisy, Internationals.

    Keep thinking like that and you will have an office in ATL making $800,000 a year...

    I could direct you to a local LTL carrier retiring their spare tractor, its a '74 International, but probably not as prestigious:tongue_sm or worn out:lol: as a "brown" one.

    Our center is known as "The Home of the Million Mile Mack".

    Yep, we have a couple of those million mile tracters ourselves Ba Ba Booie. It's amazing how our motor- head mechanics keep these old dogs running. I guess it helps with an unlimited budget. I wonder if any Center around is still using the old cab over engine design? I heard bobtailing with those in the rain was taking your own life in your hands.

    govols019 You smell that?

    We've got several cab overs. That's how a truck is supposed to look.

    We just scrapped our last cab over. It was used as a yard shifter.

    A couple of years ago in Feeder Training, the old vcr training tapes are all with the cab over trucks...and I think Hugh Downs was the narrator and late model 60's and 70's vehicles in the background.
