    It's pretty - I enjoy seeing it every time. Even if it is sitting in your garage!

    It would be great to see it at a meeting, and it would probably be good for the truck to get it out on (or off) the road.

    Harry's truck is awesome (well, I can think of ONE thing that would increase the awesome--and it rhymes with "easel" ;) ), but that paint job really is one of the coolest things ever. It is actually pretty convincing. Logo and everything!

    Very nice looking rig. The logo seems risky, but lots of ugly green x-FS rigs wandering the state. 2009 was the last year for the FS to buy green rigs, all will be white from now on. In 6 years there will scarcely been a green rig in the fleet.

    Really? That must be why I've been seeing the white trucks. I was thinking maybe they denoted a separate division of the FS or something. I learn something new every day.

    x2, except having worked for Team Green, it didn't take long to learn that there are no foreign vehicles in their fleet. One used to be able to distinguish what funding was used to purchase which rigs by their color, along w/how well they were correspondingly maintained (GSA $ = white rigs, better resale value, longer PM intervals)

    Ref the color: my employer also used/s a distinct color, which adds approx 10k to the purchase price of each vehicle. We don't worry so much about resale, as the FS flips rigs every 5 or so years, and we move 'em to back line status at 10y+.

    Seems like another lifetime when I created this thread. And then some newbs found it and resurrected it. That sure is a pretty 60 @Cruiserompin.
