My handle was Raven...they called me "Big R".   That's what truckers call the Roadway Trucking company...supposed to be a slur...typical joke for Big R cars..."Why do you always see 3 Big R cars together on the road"?   "The first one has the delivery address, the second one has a map and the third one has a quarter so they can call for directions when they get lost"....

The DSI drivers were just razzing me...

Allan Dick Designed by a member of the Heinz (baked beans) family. Only one ever built - based on Cord chassis and running gear. Heinz died in a car crash before plans could be made to put it into production.

I was kind of thinking Dick should have stuck to beans myself. It's definitely an eye catcher but doesn't do much for me. Interesting though and I had never seen it before.

It is intriquing. I think the combination of being so huge in the front and the little low windows is what doesn't appeal to me. Hey, one man's treasure and all that you know ?

Very distinctive vehicle, that much is sure.

Yes I agree,  it is intriguing,  it just doesn't appeal to me.

Also,  I wonder how you cut the front tires enough to parallel park

Nope, you're BOTH WRONG!!!!!!!!  That's what an older Driver would do to his tractor and trailer if he were fabulously wealthy!!!!!

When Dutch had his own tractor I forbade him ) rofl3 rofl3 ) from going into the basement of the truck stop in Joplin...they have a massive chrome and light and gadget shop there for truckers....you know the older Truckers say "You can NEVER have too many lights or too much chrome!!!" rofl3 rofl3 rofl3 rofl3
