1980 J20 plow - The Hornet

360 2bbl, 727, NP208, D60 rear, HD D44 front

Owned by Mesa Verde National Park

I first saw this truck in 2001 when I came to work here. I fell in lust! The Hornet was originally purchased by DOD and has been is service here for 15 years. It only has 35k miles on it today! The mechanics removed the sand spreader and it went up for bid last month. I was hoping it would go to public auction, but another federal agency has picked it up and it is going away. It is a sad time...
