I know there are some members interested in Class 8 tractors as tow rigs. I came across this 2000 Mack CX612 on eBay today. I know little about these rigs other than if I only had another garage bay she'd look good pulling the Cyclone....

Looks good, but price seems really low to me.

I thought so, too, but again I know nothing about these beasts.

There is no buy it now price and the seller has a reserve set so we won't know the price until it sells...or not...Seller also states that the odometer is not accurate, but doesn't say if it is high or low....Not a truck I'd consider.

Buy it now is set for $8500.00.
Look under bid.

Missed that...after I saw his quote:

"The odometer reads 144568 but I would say it's not accurate, so we will say it is not."

I just closed the tab.

I would add a million to that 144568. My 99 model Volvo that I had , had 1million put on it in 4 1/2 years, yes that was running team coast to coast weekly, so a 9 yr old truck should have a helluva lot more than the 144568.
It also states virgin rubber, if that's virgin rubber ( new tyres ) he got taken to the cleaners, they look like they have more like 200,000 + miles on them.
1 stack Mack with a shack on the back. They ride like a lumber wagon.

Ken,
He probably means the tires are virgins..a very common term in trucking that means the tires have never been capped.

Well I guess you learn something new everyday, after 30 years driving a truck I always thought Virgin rubber meant new. Oh well we live and learn.
See your never to old to learn something new, the day I know it all will be the day I kick the bucket.
