    Nice article and pictures. What we the other trucks in the '77 competition?

    How about this latest round that Freightliner won? The Mack entry looks tight. Should have been a close competition.

He should be given every help and encouragement in his career as an artist. He has a great future if he will work hard and stick to it.” cheap christian louboutin shoes http://www.modenusatlarge.com/32/
