Finally justice is served!!!  Sometimes the pic shows up right at the beginning.  If it doesn't, just scroll all the way to the very end!  Bob R. will be happy!  Also, check out some "strange and funny looking buses" links on youtube.  Really interesting stuff!  One link has a pretty blue Ford C-series tractor hauling a trailer bus.

Wow! Did you read the second paragraph in that Reuters GM article that selling heavy duty trucks translates or trickles down to tons of smaller vehicle sales!!??  That's what I've been saying for 10 years now!

Dump truck 101-Rule 1.  Make sure you are on solid ground. Rule 2-Be sure tail gate is unlocked.

Your post prompted me to do a search in Albany area looking for a Ford dealer who was stocking mediums-in the old days it was Orange Motors- They are gone and I could not find one who had anything other than a 550!

I did and I recall your frequent posts to that effect.

Also did you note....Ford executives say they have no special plans to counter GM's expanded truck portfolio. "We're just going to do what we always do," said John Ruppert, Ford's general manager for commercial vehicle sales.

How dumb or arrogant can you be?

Does it benefit dealers that sell medium trucks or do you mean GM as a whole? Not every dealership gets to sell medium duty trucks.

When I dove by on Friday, there were six at a display lot, two box trucks added. The dealer is Hometown Chevy. It seem that mediums are a regional thing - either there is an aggressive dealer in the mediums, or just several who will do a medium if a customer specifically asks, and maybe have one of the larger mediums on the lot.
