Oh I’m a fan of the big Himalaya’s. I think those rides are awesome. As you guys probably know, I’m a huge fan of the SDC Amor Express. It would be cool to see an American take on the ride. That’s all. I do like the Wisdom Himalaya a lot too, but you can’t beat a two truck Himi. But I know those rides are a lot to move as well. The old Amor Express that would come out to my town in the 70’s &80’s never left before 6am. It was an all nighter for that crew. And I agree with you Bigjlh, most people probably don’t know the difference.

If they were built in the US they would no longer be a “Sleek, clean, European truck-truck-truckin’ machine!”

Strates '79 Reverchon had hydraulic drive. They replaced it with a new one in '96 that had electric motor drive. They still have the '96. It's up and running in Hamburg, NY right now.
