Attachment 5998I took those 2 big hunks of iron to a car show in Wis in 2012. The wife drove
the long nose and I drove the L7000. If you drive the L7000 without a load, you
should have a real good chiropractor. The little Rap'em Pappy long nose rides and drives just as good as her Buick she says. The old V12 can cruise the Indy Brickyard sweet also.

I did not know the L 7000 was yours. I have seen a lot of photos of your pickup but have not seen the L 7000. I have been down to visit Marvin Taylor in Guyman Ok a couple of times, Marvin said you brought your truck down there to take a picture with his 46.

Bobdylan,
Yes, Cayoterun and I did alot of brain storming and hair scratching to build
Balaur and Rap'em Pappy. His is the best mentor a guy can ask for. The greatest
guy for helping save these old V12s. We spent a day in Boise,Ok at the museum
where he donated his 62 V12 Balaur. It was on our bucket list to put the 2 trucks
together. We drove them around and talked V12s all that day. One of my other trips, I helped get the 46 V12 he calls Thumper wired up and cruising.That is a cool truck. Now if you or anyone has a extra 305v6, Speedway museum in
Lincoln, Ne is looking for one. I followed Cayoterun's footsteps and took a V12
there last year. I offered a 401,but they wanted a 305. They want to put the large V12 and small v6 on display together on 3rd floor. That will help these GMC motors to be not forgotten.

Marvin took the kids for a ride in thumper, we wanted to go out to the museum but ran out of time.
I have a 305 I would donate. Just need to figure out how and when, I am planning on taking the family to Pioneer Museum in Minden Nebraska, maybe we could go to Lincoln from there.

Very cool Pappy! You and Cayoterun have some of the most clever GMC's I've ever seen. I'm glad to know that the "Museum of American Speed" is still in good hands after "Speedy" Bill Smith's passing. He loved the less common engines of all kinds, and worked hard to preserve as many as he could right up until his death. One of the sprint cars in that museum raced at our dirt track clear up into the early 1980's and was powered by a brutally fast 270 Cu. In. GMC I-6. Jolly knows the car I'm talking about as it also raced in his area and if I remember correctly, his father raced against it.

Thanks for posting your trucks.

RAP'EM PAPPY - next time you have your trucks out to play with I'd like to take a closer look at them. I live three, maybe four miles south of Sun Prairie!

I rode shotgun with Dad hauling livestock to Chicago stock yards and packing plants all over Iowa and Illinois as a kid. I forget the year, was mid/late 1960's but we went to Chicago 50 Sunday's one year. Lot of big V-6 GMC's, Ford's, lots and lots of Binders. I only remember hearing a rumor about one V-12 GMC owned/used to haul livestock. Gas tractors were favored by most livestock haulers back then, many older farmers believed diesel exhaust harmed cattle especially, and tainted the meat. By the early '70's that idea faded and the gas trucks disappeared.
