Christmas Still Here - Dodge L-700 info too!

It has been a long time since we have had a white Christmas here in the southern tier of New York. It would have been the opportune time for that Highway 61 - 1946 GMC Snowplow to have arrived, it will have to wait.

I did order another dump truck - a 1949 International KB8 -SA by First Gear. It should arrive next week, giving me time to think about where it's going to go - my wife thinks I need a room just for my models, I agree.

One "truck gift" did arrive, a gift from my wife which I will really enjoy. I think it might even help with my truck identification.

This is a great book about the trucks I remember from the 60's. It covers Autocar, Brockway,
Chevrolet, Diamond T - Reo, Dodge, Ford, Freightliner, GMC, IH, Kenworth, Mack, Peterbilt, White, and others such as Marmon and Hendrickson.

One truck that I didn't find though was the Dodge L-700 introduced in 1966. Perhaps because it was considered for light duty purpose, that may have been reson for its omission. However, as a modeler I have found like others, there is not too much info on this model - so I thought I would put up some here in picture form.

Hope you all had a Great Christmas. I know I did! Looking forward to the new year - and some more old truck finds!
