Drivin’ A Truck: 1974 Peterbilt 359 Cummins
I can’t be the only one who fantasizes about driving a big old truck. Driving a truck might not be a profession that your high school guidance counselor will recommend…but how many more Pharmacists does the world need…and I want to shift gears all day until my arm is swole. But I don’t want to spend the few hundred grand that it costs for a new semi truck, so I’ll find something more DT priced on craigslist. Like this 1974 Peterbilt offered for $2,500 in Napa, CA via craigslist.

Put on a flat bed and make it your daily. Should haul.. well, ass – and what ever you can fit onto the flat bed -lead bars, etc. Alas my HOA likely wouldn't appreciate how cool it is and it would be hard to get it into the garage.
Just the thing to turn into a stealth motor home / tiny house on a big ass truck.
Plop a ISO container on it and finish it out.
That is insane that this beast is only $2500, it's got to be worth that much in scrap metal alone!
That's the spirit!! Some hipster would pay a few hundred for each tire so he can start his own backyard crossfit training class.
I have always dreamed of getting a smaller forward cab with double cab and putting an RV trailer on the back so I can tow toys and go camping. My better half is just not into these "strange" toys like I am. George in Canada
Brings to mind that country classic "I'm goin down to Nashville to get my Peterbuilt…"
