1979 Transtar

Thought I'd create a little traffic by posting my truck here. 1979 Transtar II 4070B. It's an ex-Budweiser stable truck from the Romoland, CA stable. This pic is from last weekend at the Ballston Spa, NY show. I picked up the attached trailer in Hubbard, OH on the way to the show.

Welcome to the site! Your truck looks like it's in nice shape for its age.

She definately is! I bought it in 2011 and drove it from Washington state to Maine. I'd jump into it and go anywhere. Next week it's off to Hershey for the Swap Meet. Here the link to the cross country trip:

One of the guys I used to work with had a "bad goat" . Well that is what he called her.. I think it was not a goat because he called her Dolly Lama.

That's a good looking truck! How about some specs? My old boss had a '77 with a ramp deck that hauled Dresser TD-8 & 9 dozers. It had a 6-71 and a 10 speed.
