    So, apparently, we're going to have a white Christmas here in Montreal. It was looking pretty green until about 10:00 last night. For the techies, it's a 1987 International S2500 with a 300-hp Cummins L10, a 10-speed Fuller Roadranger, 16-23 axles, limited-slip diff, a Cöté 40-inch high, 12-foot wide angling plow, a Tenco 12-foot cable side wing and about 7 tonnes of gravel in the back. After almost 25 years in service, it's got about 120,000 true kilometres on the clock.

    looks like a fun rig to drive, have you been driving it for 25 years or is it just your turn?

    It's my turn. We bought this truck second hand about 15 years ago as a spare wing truck and really only started using it on a regular basis about 6-7 years ago. It's always been the truck that will push anything, anywhere, anytime though. Lots of power, lots of low gearing. Sounds pretty tough too.
