There were 3 almost identical GMC Generals, with the distinctions being in the fuel tank and also step arrangements. Among them had 3 tanks through the off-side step an installed directly come the driver"s battery box. The other two had traditional twin step/battery boxes through the separate twin step bracket mounted each side listed below the exhaust elbows. They were not built for SB2, yet rather to be prototypes that a proposed 60" high rise sleeper called "The General"s Quarters". The sleepers were built by able Body and also the 3 trucks made the national circuit at truck shows and other promotional market events. The trucks had 8V92T"s, 13 speeds, Reyco 4 springs and aluminum frames.When Hal Needham to be going to make SB2, basic Motors want to proceed their sponsorship after the vast jump in sales of the Firebird indigenous SB1. This time, however, GM want to usage the movie as a promotional auto for their own trucks, and also thus the GMC basic was inserted. The Generals were also used in one of Eastwood"s any Which means movies. GM ultimately decided that there was not enough of a sector for the 60" high rise, and with the tough times because that truck equipments in the so late 70"s and also early 80"s, GM scrapped the General"s Quarters, yet retained a 60" flat top sleeper together an option based on the same architecture. The 3 trucks to be taken off of the promo circuit and also sold through a midwestern dealer. The General"s quarters sleepers to be removed. 36" sleepers were mounted in their place.As because that the truck, "I" perform not "own" the truck, but my involvement through it is why I offered the Duel truck. Yes, the photos i posted are of the actual van heresafe and sound in Missouri. The remainder of the story will certainly come in early time.As for various other trucks, I"m tho chasing down Jerry Reed"s K100 native High Ballin". I"ve got my hand on a couple of others now, however the biggest worry is acquiring them earlier to Missouri.

Ive broke just about everything you deserve to break top top a truck and either solved it beside the roadway or limped that home. The allude is I"m no afraid of it.I think I would chase under every small red vehicle on the earlier roads the Maine.If the brand-new owner wants to relocate it somewhere, i volunteer to drive. I"ll even pay for my own transportation in and also out the Maine. (I might even salary to drive the duel truck)

Hmmm,I could have to unsubscribe to him ~ above Youtube then.
by Dan Bruno - Friday, in march 12, 2010 3:30 PM
Well, I need to step in here and also respectfully disagree with you guys. Brad and I have actually talked rather a bit on the subject and we have had a lot of of typical experiences. I was bombarded with requests to bring the Duel and Convoy trucks here, there and everywhere. Not just that, us were bombarded v fans that wanted come come see the trucks. That isa ache thing and absolutely versus my nature, but at some point you have to draw a line. Prior to I placed the trucks on display screen at the Museum the Transportation, ns was safety an unbelievable amount of time meeting world who came into St. Louis just to check out the trucks. Eventually, the fact sets in that every ride supplies $20 worth of fuel or moreand every visit shoot a weekend come heck and the three or 4 hours I invested with a fan room three or 4 hours ns missed security time through my kids. In the end, my deteriorate was putting the trucks on display screen at the Museum where they are secure, insured against personal injury and viewable come the public.The show issue is even worse. Shows prefer the altoalsimce.org and ATCA mirrors are an exception, but most mirrors at some level are placed on through a human being or entity trying to offer something or turn a benefit of some kind. Mid America, Iowa 80, GATS and others are mirrors that are placed on by human being who, in ~ the most basic level, are trying to rotate a profit, rise sales or otherwise promote their agenda. When you have actually an neck truck, you"re a component of an as whole draw that renders the occasion fun. Once you have actually a particular truck that people are comes to see, you room a specific attraction the the promoter or host is trying to usage as a draw. Ns realize this may sound snotty, yet its no at all. I"ve own and restored antique trucks since 1993. Ns bought the Duel van in 2005 and within a week, i was acquiring calls to carry the truck right here or there to this show or the event. That literally changed overnight and continues still with the Convoy truck. If castle weren"t do the efforts to use you, castle wouldn"t be contacting friend direct. Additionally keep in mind that these mirrors are often not in our earlier yard. They are frequently events the are thousands of miles away. That"s fuel, hotel and also time away, assuming friend don"t blow a tires or have actually a breakdown. At the end of the day, friend realize the your time and also investment the money and labor space being provided to do someone rather money. That possibly tolerableas lengthy as her own costs are taken care of, yet its offensive once you"re the end hundreds or thousands and someone rather is lining your pockets. That is no different than speaker at a conference or convention being paid a speaking fee, or at a minimum, having their travel costs paid for. What Brad was talking about is that he won"t spend his very own money to to visit a show that renders someone else a profit. I agree with him entirety heartedly. In fairness, I have actually been asked come attend specific shows and have my prices covered. Several an extremely nice mirrors (small and also large)on the east coast have offered to cover expenses in the past, but unfortunately the travel time compelled didn"t work with my schedule.

by Tony Brown - Friday, in march 12, 2010 4:23 PM

You don"t have to go come every one girlfriend know! you don"t have to provide rides to anyone that"s involves look, only if you desire to. Native what i gathered that didn"t want to come 70 mile to a show in Greensboro (its free, nobody makes anything). I think the "movie"part has actually gone come the head. Execute you think is cost-free for the rest of united state to acquire there? What around the men that have actually 5 or 6 or also 10 van (David Strickland) the go throughout country. I haven"t made it come a national show yet, I need to geta fill to obtain me there. We are all in it because that the hobby. Ns don"t think any kind of of the reflects make a profit! ns don"t care if the don"t show, I simply don"t care for the attitude!
by Tony Brown - Friday, march 12, 2010 4:32 PM
probably its me, some days i feel nobody on here get"s me and other days ns don"t acquire some of you. Well, that"s how it go"s.;)
by JeffLipinski - Friday, in march 12, 2010 5:02 PM
I deserve to see wherein Dan is coming from- If somebody desires my truck at a show and also they are declaring it as an attraction, then there is compensation in order. I understand I can"t afford to take2-3 days off of work to walk to a truck show every other weekend that"s 200 milesaway.It adds up really quick. Alocal showjust for the funny of it, no large deal. But demanding a display up fee once you pull as much as the gateways like everyone else, no cool.
by Tony Brown - Friday, march 12, 2010 5:13 PM
Don"t walk!
through Dan Bruno - Friday, in march 12, 2010 5:26 PM
Tony,I think her misunderstanding my point and maybe what Brad was saying. (I didn"t overhear the conversation you did, therefore I"m simply going on what he and also I have talked around in general). On the various other hand, perhaps I misunderstood her comments and also others. Either way, I simply wanted to clarify my position a bit more.I"m no talking about shows that ns decide to walk to because I want to attend. I"m additionally not talking about shows placed on by fellow hobbyists or collector club groups that room just around the hobby. Brad and I havetalked in ~ length about hobby shows and also never once had actually the ide ofpay or else come up. Top top the whole, we"re talking about shows whereby someone asked united state to carry one of this trucks so that they deserve to turn around and use the reality that the certain truck is going come be there in stimulate to lug in an ext people and sell an ext tickets. As for me, every present has a actual cost. I really don"t treatment if it"s 70 mile or 700 miles. A present that"s 70 miles away is 140 ring trip. At a raw price of $.50 in fuel every mile, that"s $70 in fuel alone. Start including up$70 here and $70 there, and we"re feather at some really large money real quick. I can"t write-off or otherwise deduct that money indigenous my earnings like someone who"s running an antique as an operation truck or as component of some type of business. Sometimes that $70 is in the disposable income budget and sometimes the not. It"s a hobby when its done on one"s very own terms for one"s own enjoyment. It"s other entirely different when needs are make or when people try and leverage other of her for your gain. It"s not really any type of differnent than agreeing to haul a fill from St. Louis to Los Angeles, but the shipper wants you to swing by KC and also pick up 2 pallets and drop that in Denver ~ above your way for free. As soon as you object, castle say, "Why not? You"re already heading that way."As far as the movie truck point going to his head or myhead, I mean that"s approximately others to decide.Like I stated before, the truth that the van in inquiry are movie trucks definitely generates a whole other level the interest. I get about 800 hits per day on my website and an typical of 75 e-mails every week about the movie trucks. Ns maybe obtain 2 every year around the others. Ns return every phone call and also answer every e-mailI get. Ns bought these miscellaneous trucks because I favor the trucks, the Americana indigenous the era once trucking was the topic of TV and movies and I enjoy in some perverse means actually control the vehicles i watched over and overon the display as a kid. I desire to share mine passion through like-minded fans, yet only come the extent that i am no incurring the cost of the hobby beyond my own experience.For everyone to indicate that because we set limits ~ above what we carry out at ours own cost is somehow gift selfish or cultivating a an individual club is somewhat out that line, but like i said possibly I misunderstood. If I may not pick to take it my truck somewhere, I acknowledge that to some people, the "famous" trucks ns am involved with have particular power or mystique. Together for me and my family, we usage that strength to raise money for an excellent causes favor the one-of-a-kind Olympics. We"ve spent our own money to send hats and shirts to children who to be die-hardfans butwhose parental were down on your luck and also didn"t have the money to provide their children anything because that Christmas. I have actually stood and cried through the parental of a terminally ill son whose wish to see and ride in one of these trucks was fulfilled. I"ll offer endlessly when I canif using one of these van enriches a person"s heart, however not if it means enriching someone"s financial institution account. If not letting other human being take benefit of you method something has gone to her head, then ns guess the has.

Jeff carried up one intresting suggest here, compensation through a historical plate there space some guidelines as per assorted state dot"s and also the fed period itself, a historic plate is for an individual use for parades,shows,organization activities and such,as lengthy as there room no prizes,ribbons or any kind of other form of compensation, no sponsership, if the public pays directly or indirectly to see your truck then thats considered a commerical enterprise, no historic license plate, a historic plate is non commerical.

A slim ironic twist to wherein this thread has gone is just one of the beforehand conversations in the initial S&theB the went other like: Who wants to watch him? whos asking? The guy paying him 25.00 a day so every his adoring fans deserve to look at him! This to be the conversation with big Enos & the promotor of the van rodeo. Ns see precisely what Dan is saying. If someone wants to do a profit off the Dan"s truck,then that is just right for Dan to it is in compensated. If Dan desires to be at the display by his very own choice, climate it is money the end of his pocket.At the very least that is what i read into it.T.

Every old truck the is own by an enthusiast is sponsored by his wallet. As for other people"s opinions on preserving moving history, some civilization think it"s an excellent that I"m among those people who desire to remember and also preserve the past. Then there space the other world who to speak I should scrap that old piece of history and reduced my losses. Climate there are human being who say, Why walk you choose that brand of truck? Imagine if any part of history was scrapped, we wouldn"t have an excellent museums to walk to or examine where we come from and where we may be headed if us don"t find out from our previous experiences. I"m glad the Duel truck and also the SATB2 truck room being preserved regardless of that owns them.

I have never seen a truck present make a benefit yet! together I said, Brad didn"t desire to bring it come the Greensboro show, that is free! the would like me placing a $25 fee every time someone wanted a pic of my old heap,and that"sat the very least once a day once the weather is bad. No i don"t think you have to go to any kind of shows girlfriend don"t want to.If you have the right to make money on the I"m happy for you. Once you start expecting money indigenous the altoalsimce.org shows, well ns think her nut"s. Indigenous what ns heard and seen the day, itwould be prefer Dan steering his pete to a display instead that the convoy truck due to the fact that no one paid him. And as I stated before, that is his truck, he have the right to do what he wants, i think that is crappy.

my .02 top top this.There are two methods to look in ~ this.1) A person owns a "piece the history". They buy it, cherish it and also use it how ever before they check out fit.2) A human being owns a "piece the history". Castle buy it, cherish it and also use the how ever before they check out fit............BUT also see a way to do money on it(to help offset the cost of the piece?). This human being sees it as a service proposition together an included bonus. The person owns it and can carry out as castle please(no issue what civilization think). This is what makes the world go round. Good/bad/indifferent.I entirely agree v Dan and his problems with owning this kind of truck. Where perform you attract the line? Where ever he demands to. That line will be various for everyone. What walk Neal(?) carry out with it when he own it? Did the advertise he had actually it?
through Cooter - Sunday, march 14, 2010 3:49 PM
ns am v Dan top top this one too. I have been critisized by a few times why ns don"t take my trucks to this show or the place... "They simply sit in your building" well - I operated hard restoring the vehicles i own and also I did not see any kind of of the civilization that often tend to critisize others assist me in any fashion. Ihave a an excellent deal of proud in mine vehicles ns have revived and if they need to sit because that a when - I can see them any kind of time i want. I also work for a living and have a family and also other responsibilities that need my attention. I deserve to not take any kind of of my trips together a company expense so I have actually to budget carefully when and also where ns go and how it fits right into the household schedule. Ns have found that truck civilization are several of the nicest people, however Iwill make the decisions where and when ns go locations - those decisions impact people ns love - the world that occur to be where I display up execute not. In a perfect human being I would certainly make every display in the country but we all understand we not live in a perfect world.
