    It wasn't long for this world anyway. Pity anybody who had to drive that old pile.

    I felt that way about the old P-800s with the high step and manual steering!

    They still steered better than the p1 equivalents. Steering was forklift-like by comparison.

    Did I mention how I hate the IHC VT 365 cars of all sizes? I'd set fire to all of them as well.

    Ideally I would load them with 5000lbs of Anfo like on Mythbusters and vaporize them.

    I always wonder about this happening since some of the older trucks are pretty sketchy. A question I do have is will UPS compensate that driver for the loss of his personal effects in the car such as a backpack, things in the backpack, cooler, etc?

    That's the term a mechanic used one Saturday when he about smoked me out of the customer counter when he caught something on fire in the shop

    Felt like you were driving a boat with the gigantic steering wheel?

    How about the steering rod snapping off while your driving on the expressway.
