    Yes i like them. My boss finds it a problem because of the filhty air around it.
    but thats issn't a problem.
    there are sun visers with 4 loghts in it.
    so could place one on it , or a ledbar.
    not that great looks as a lightbar. But with the 300watt ,one hell of a light.
    and al the lights will be led.

    but still nothing.
    btw. Today it's TSI ROAD CARGO 20th celebration.
    i had 18 with them.

    Do you like the roof lights of the daf? Would be another argument for a daf, since your boss does not like your light bar.

    The "month of tilted cabins".... hope all well with both of you guys trucks, and that it wasn't too expensive of a repair.

    yeah wel there was more said as in waht stands in the post,but that was the most direct sentenses.

    still don't know what he will buy,but when he's is figured out,he wouls tell me it right away. he said.

    i don't ask to much. the merc salesman says that a merc is more expensive that a grilled chicken (Scania)
    and i don't know what will be placed in those grilled chickens, but it seems that there will be some extras on/in it

    he told me some time ago he wil order one and most delevered right away that day.
    because 7 years back he ordered a merc in the morning ,and just pass noon,i called him that the turbo of the truck was broken .
    i was near cologne that moment.

    theusday morning i drove away from home and the indicator for low coolant level.
    but only in left corners,otherwise everything oke.
    at the discharge adres in Ratingen Germany i tild the cab up to see if there was a leak somewhere.
    and yes it was.
    i thought a hoose leak ,but it looks as it came somewere at the hose clamp.
    call the garage and they say it was beter for beeing save than sorry and drive to a garage in Germany.
    arriving there and replaced the hose it was still leaking,after further searching they saw it came out of the coolant reservoir. so replaced it for a new one.

    That was a nice talk. No decision yet? Why don't you ask for a budget and then you can make your own proposal what to get for that money? I am sure it is possible to get an arrangement.

    Thijs, I just sat and laughed and laughed, reading that, for I could see it all in my imagination. Cheek of the devil, you have, but also much of his luck!
    but i'm also the only one ,which was asked for drivers favorit. so i can't overplay my hand to much
    Yeah, yeah, boss's pet, aren't you?
    I'm getting quite excited, waiting to see what you'll end up with. Then you MUST furnish it well, as you did with the HC. None of this "Won't bother" business.

    (Your saying has the English equivalent of "The die is cast". Die, in this case, = matrijs. All courtesy of my splendid Dutch dictionary!)

    well the bullit is through the curch. (dutch saying, don't know if they say it elsewhere too)

    the boss asked me which is my favorit truck?
    more or less needles to ask. it's daf
    but i want a merc again.
    why ??????
    daf is tattoed on your hart
    yes, but the service of the merc garage is better

    he wanted to steer me to daf.
    what do you want to buy for a merc?
    a bigspave 450hp tri-axles. (the middlehigh roof)
    ohh!!
    buy me a DAF then.then i get a super space cab (the highest roof)

    uhhh???
    yes higher roof, bigger lockers. i want space

    and i want more hp

    no it's enough hp
    drove this week 2x 27tons netto + 23tons for the truck and containers,i want more hp then that
    no ,no need for that.the torque is more of what you have now (460hp)

    and many more blabla

    and will see what he do.
    but i'm also the only one ,which was asked for drivers favorit. so i can't overplay my hand to much
    so i wait for now,but it can't take to long,while the truck is not any usefull anymore after june.
    within 6 months it had to be replaced

    Yes, I like the HC name very much and its logo just gives that little twist of difference to the meaning. Shame about the lights.

  • janihudi
    commented on 's reply
    no not any news yet about the next one
    if there will be any lights ,i don;t know,he don't want that anymore.
    the table won't fit,it's a complete other truck even when it will be a merc.
    don't know what to do wiith the logo,if he will allow it. if so i can call the new one also highway cruiser, or make a new name for it
    don't know yet. i still do like the HC name and logo

    Too bad that nasty score on the paintwork, Thijs. You always take such good care of it.
    Do you yet know what boss is getting for you as replacement? I feel quite sad that the Highway Cruiser will no longer have its images on this thread, showing off all its lights and the special logo. Look, you must do something with the new truck, make it Thijs' truck, not just any old one. Add loads of lights, you've got the Henny sign, Rubber Ducks, the Michelin men, and might the table top also fit, I wonder? You worked really hard staining that and getting it right. And the logo, could you get another decal made like it?
