2017, 44th Turkey Rod Run


As we travel, it is nice to comment about where we are going and/or where we have been and all the IHC trucks that we have seen on our journeys.

2017, 44th Turkey Rod Run

The Turkey Rod Run is a four day event at the Daytona International Speedway that draws people from all over the southeastern states and beyond. Personally I prefer spending Thanksgiving with family and friends in an homey, casual environment, not by bumping elbows with thousands of strangers at a very large swap meet/car show/car coral. To each his own. Therefore, I only go for a Friday or Saturday. Friday, this year, had weather challenges so I went on Saturday. Below is one day’s snapshot of the relevant IHC in attendance. Granted there were 4,333 registered vehicles in attendance, so I might have missed some. As far as I know, mine was the only model L there. As you can see there were some KBs, Metro, and model S. With so many vehicles, there are likely going to be some odder than others I’ve included a couple of them too. And there’s even an example for the “hit and miss” guys.

Tried to get this pic rotated, but you’ll just have to rotate your eyes if it comes up vertically on your computer. Notice it is a Canadian native, but there were dozens of other kinds.

Thanks for sharing the pics! That Learjet camper has to one of the stranger things I've seen! Was it over 8 1/2' wide?

I think the correct model designation for the 'D190' is a V190, though I doubt it's on a 190 chassis now.

Powerstrokes were the only V8 diesels that mounted the turbo at an angle, weren't they?

Re: 2017, 44th Turkey Rod Run

The Lear Jet camper was parked in such a way I couldn’t get directly behind it to judge its width nor did I have my tape measure with me. In fact I didn’t linger long enough to inquire anything about it. Daytona Speedway infield is such a large area and to cover it all requires one to keep moving.
As for the 190, it could very well be a V model. Zooming into the original pic reveals there is no letter designation on the cowel badge. I’m getting old and where I got the idea it was a D is anybody’s guess. I’m not a deisel expert and I took the photo so those who are experts could relish in the knowledge they recognized what kind it is. Cheers!


What - no one noticed those l o n g shades on the KB2’s headlights?
