The following pop quiz is restricted to members under the age of 30:

On a steering column-mounted standard transmission, what gear are you in if the lever is moved towards the dash and up?

All depends what you are driving. Since I'm an old fart, I'm not allowed to answer though.

 

Oops, forgot about those.

 

Newer than 1947 and older than 1960.

I laugh at that. 

My company truck [Peterbilt] has a 10 speed and I usually only use 7 of them even when loaded.  5 at most if empty.

:(

I think he is talking about me!

 

One of the vehicles I was thinking about still fits in that time frame. I doubt any 30 yr olds would remember them though. Another trivia question, Who made a 4 on the tree?

My work truck has a Meritor 10 speed powered by a Cat D12. Loaded I start in 3rd. 2nd if on a really steep hill with a full load. Anything less than full, I use 4th. I had a choice of an auto or manual in it and chose the manual. My personal vehicle is an auto but would love to find a 6 speed.

14 minutes for an answer. What took so long??  :D

 

We had a 62 190D when I was growing up. then Dad bought a 59 gas eng one that wasn't roadworthy. I used to fire it up and drive around the field lanes. It was one that you checked the gas and filled up the oil!

You guys are all a bunch of sissies.

 

 

He has a 13 speed Road Ranger with a low/ high and /direct/ overdrive air valves. What he has done is removed the air buttons and substituted two sticks to shift the air valves. The center stick is the main transmission gear shift lever. The left stick is the direct and overdrive air valve button. The stick with the skull on top is the low/high range button.

 

from a comment.  That's all show....

That guy sure does love to shift gears.Mountains and stop lights are probably his best friend.Love to see what the stick configuration is like in his pickup truck.
