    Just had a chance to read again so maybe this has been answered (haven't gotten through all the replies yet!) ... that's one of the springs out of the air brake pot.

      Well, I'll give you credit for at least driving a Paccar truck!!!

I can't say if it is the same truck, obviously, but it is a good bet. It isn't likely for the fuel tanks to be empty as it is a good drive to the next town....

        An example of how "eye witness accounts" change with time... So now it is the same truck!

          Wouldn’t that make them the slowest Arsonist’s in the history of crime?

          They drive it out there on Saturday, and took until Sunday to set it alight.

          Arsonists with a conscience maybe. They thought about it for half a day before striking a match.

            Wondering WHY the cops would be divulging information during an investigation to a bystander?
