Request For Cabover section.......

Hi,
I would like to request that a cabover section be created on the forum.
Perhaps: Beginning to 1957 as these models are the older bubble/helmet type. and a section for 1958 to present.
At any rate, it would be great to have a place to discuss specifics to the cabovers as the info on them is scatted throughout the forum and the internet. I am sure there are quite a few cabover enthusiasts out there that would also appreciate this.
Thanks,
Erich

There's been a request out there for a sub-forum for the big trucks as a whole. I suspect they weigh the +s and -s to such requests before doing anything. To me a COE section as a separate group, without having a big truck section as a whole, is a bit of a reach. Stu

It would be nice to have an older classic antique truck section for all the heavy duty, big job, F500+, H Series, and COE trucks etc. It doesn't help very much when you're looking for help with 1961-66 F600 in a section where many if not all of the posts are for F100's. It's hard to compare an F100 with and F900. Or a 1948-50 Cabover in a section where most of the posts are for the F1.
It really would be nice to have a section for the Heavy Duty Classics.
Thanks again,
Erich

On that I absolutely agree. Besides sheet metal, the bigs share little with the smalls.

But if you had that specific a section - say a 61-66 F600 - you might find out that your'e one in a bunch.
You will get more information from the 48-60 Ford Truck Forum on just about any vehicle made then any place on the internet.
We own them - We drive them - We fix them

Yep, that's true, I love this forum. A lot of knowledge and many people willing to help.
Maybe if the Super/ heavy duty section included the older heavy duty's like the F500-900's, C500-900's it would be helpful. I saw a great picture of a 1960 F9000 in a ford truck book, It would be nice to know who owns it. That is an impressive piece of machinery indeed! I just love classic heavy duty trucks. Work horses built to last still doing their job. My 66 F600 could pull a house down! That eaton 2-speed rear end with the NP435 4-speed with granny gear really lays it down......in power, not rubber of course.
Thanks again and Happy 4th of July everyone!
Erich

Cabovers at Pigeon Forge

Not that I am trying to keep this thread alive but thought this would be a good place to put these...

Here are the cabovers that were at Pigeon Forge last weekend (Friday anyway). I have been to a lot of car events and I have never seen this many really nice cabovers at one event.

The first and second cabovers pictured are owned by FTE members 48fordcoe and scottm1.

I didn't get to talk with the owners of these two cabovers... any body know who they are?

This last cabover was only there for a couple minutes. Must have realized he was at the wrong event. lol
