Sad Truck is Sad

That puddle of antifreeze near the loading dock? The tears of a box truck.

    I saw a tilt cab like this today at work. It was an Isuzu with a utility bed/box. It also had an equipment crane on the side and a rack full of ladders. It was the most purposeful truck I had ever seen. And I didn't even snap a cell picture…

    Probably the crappiest part (and there are thousands) about driving a cab-over is when you start your shift and you're a little groggy, you tip the cab and all the sh*t that you or the last driver left in the cab races to the front and tries to break the windshield. You check the oil and all the belts and hoses, but you know, when you walk around the front you gotta' check the windshield. And you also know that if that thermos that you left in there made that sickening "crack", you are either Out-Of-Service right f*cking there (best case, Boss rips you a new one), or you head out and DOT red-tag's you on the side of the road (by far worse).
    All this aside (and I already told you I could go on and on about how much Cab-Overs suck), Drivers that get used to them get pretty protective about them. If I could find that '84 KW K134 that I put nearly two million miles and twelve years of my life into, I'd buy it in a minute. And while not quite the daily-driver that we normally think of, that's where I'd be putting my fuel.

      Years ago, a friend of mine felt much the same way about cab-overs. He went so far as to make a daily driver out of an Isuzu box truck, which he shortened by three fee and converted to a flatbed. I never understood the obsession but it did look cool with his Toyota FJ40 on the back.

      When I come to power anything with more than 1000 lbs payload capacity will be required to be forward control. That'll keep the trucks separate from the cars, and appropriately penalize anyone foolish enough to have more than 2 kids.
