i never got to see any of the factory trucks of the late '80s through the mid90s except for a lot of pics from the I-net. so seeing all these TTrucks racing, new and old, is way cool. would've like to seen the rough riders in action though.
did get to visit the old simon & simon shop once in '92, i was a parts delivery driver at the time and their concrete shop foreman(mike) was really cool, showed me the race trucks being prepped for the 1000.
also showed me the Ln9000 ford tractor/trailer they had parked behind the shop, everything was painted accordingly in FoMoCo racing trim. the floors in the race shop were " white linolium " i'll never forget that. anyway thanks Mike; who's now retired somewhere in Parker, AZ. who knows maybe i'll run in to him in a few weeks.
