    I recently had to sell my 3950.
    Good Luck to Stroker with it. May it bring you and your Missus as much joy with it as I had in the short time I owned it.

    But I will Be a Cyclone 3950 Owner again.

    NOW that is a tow vehicle. Want one with black fenders, roof and dark moroon body, except a long nose. A 3406E would work for me also but with a 5X4...that way no one could drive it but me. Like the straight stacks too. Bob

    I like the matching paint job on the truck. That really looks sharp.

    We're game. Cyclone Convoy coming up. And the best part, no running through the chicken coops or running log books.

    How about a Cyclone/Big Rig race? I'd almost pay to see that! Notice I said almost.
