    Yup runs good too, had her up to 80mph this morning rolling down the highway and didn't even really notice it. I looked down at speedometer and jusy laughed and was like wtf dude. Of course I slowed down, my dumbasz should have never been going that fast but crazy how good that truck still runs. Automatic 700 with plenty of legroom.

    I like the old 700 autos, even the diesel freightliners that can't get out of their own way.

    My P12 is a one of a kind as far as I know. I got it back in '08. It's a Workhorse chassis with a GM Vortec 8.1L V8. Those engines start at 420hp.

    Fully loaded front to back, floor to ceiling, it hauls the mail at 75mph without breaking a sweat.

    New engine being put in right now. I should have it back in a few weeks.

    I call it The Big Brown Beast.

    What the hell does a P12 look like? My back hurts just imagining having to deliver that.

    I drove a p-1200 with an 8.1 for a long time. Man that baby would roar when you put your foot down, and fully loaded with 350+ pieces it would move out no problem. Mine had a speed governor on it, don't remember if it was 75mph but must have been.
    The fuel situation sucked but that's to be expected: ~5.0mpg, 20 minute fill-up every two days. But compared to a stick p500 it's like a Cadillac!
