I'm normally a blabbermouth, but just got back night before last from 2+ weeks travelling to, racing, and returning from Monterrey, Mexico.

It's good to be home! 8)

Since it is illegal to have passengers in a trailer on the highway
Depends on the State. In some States it is legal if you have "communication" between the tractor and the trailer.

Those are great trucks, Mark! Some years ago I had a '55 Chevy 1-ton with the pressure lubricated 235 inline-6, and I was always amazed at how good of a job that 6-banger did.

California Not-For-Hire CDL

California has a provision for issuing a CDL for RVs and other not-for-hire vehicles operated above 26k GVWR. Written and basic driving test, IIRC, but no formal school requirement. Anyone operating a vehicle over that weight in Cali is supposed to have one, but the rule is routinely ignored. The te...
