Sorry Bill for not responding you instantly since I could not check my mailbox. IRT is Ice Road Trailer – my favorite TV programme.

Great looking Rig. Growing up in South Bend I saw a lot of Studebakers.

G’Day Bill, That’s one very fine truck you’ve built for I’m sure a very happy “canuck”...
i love the finish & detail in the timber selection, top marks.
Cheers, crowie
