I was a company driver for Frederick Transport (bulk div.) for 2 1/2 years before getting laid off at Christmas 1984. This cab-over was one of the nicest riding & handling trucks I have ever driven.

This one was taken around Christmas time 1969. I was riding with Dad & he told me not to take a picture until we had a better looking trailer behind us, but I took it anyway. Trailer was an old CanCar, probably oldest in the fleet. Tractor was his regular IH, unit #5. Taken at Gloria's Restaurant/Truckstop in Sudbury Ont. The place is still there today, but not many trucks go in anymore, with the bypass around town now. Note Christmas trees for sale behind our truck.
