Nice video. As the owner of an early ('79) B7100, it's interesting to see how many little differences there are between mine and these later hydro 7100s. The diff lock relocation makes sense given the HST pedal takes up all of the right floorboard, but I'm interested even in the throttle...on mine, pulling it towards the operator increases engine speed while throwing it away does the opposite. Shut-off is also accomplished by a yellow "trigger" beneath the dash; pull it and it shuts off fuel. Vive les differences!

My latest little project: putting some mid-90s Delco-Remy four-note horns -- from a Fleetwood, DeVille, or Roadmaster -- on my CR-V. Perfect? Maybe not, but I love how these have some...uhhm, "oomph" to them.

The un-bailing-out continues: +General Motors will buy back 200 million shares from the United States Treasury. The treasury, in turn, promises to sell back the rest of its stake (some 300 million more shares) over the next 12-15 months.

This bus can only be found on one of the two commuter routes: The M-29 and the I-94 express. However, depending on the bus models, the only two bus models you'll see is the 2007 Orion V 05.501 CNG #29600 and/or the 2007 Orion VII 07.501

Brief clip of my new horn install. Noise!

+Mercedes-Benz USA unwrapped the updated 2014 Sprinter van range this morning. What's new? For starters, a new face, some new (to vans) safety technology, and for the first time in the U.S., a four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine.

+Phil Floraday hits the nail on the head, but his disappointment is amplified if you stop to consider how many pickup innovations GM has flirted with publicly, yet opted to either ignore or discontinue.

GMT800s, for example, were offered with four-wheel-steering and composite beds. GM flirted with active suspension on the GMT400, along with a nifty super-wide bed with no wheel well intrusions. Chevy Cheyenne concept also had neat bed-side access doors just aft of the cab. And, love it or hate it, the Avalanche's mid-gate system did offer flexibility no other rival could.

But the '14 Silverado/Sierra? A slightly new look and some mildly-different engine choices. That's about all we're in store for.

Be careful opening the door to the room of Innovations GM Almost Brought to Market but Abandoned.

Trains, planes, automobiles, trucks, tractors, etc.
Introduction
If it has wheels, there's a good chance I'm interested -- if not obsessed -- with it. The more obscure the transportation topic, the more interested I am. Case in point: click here.
Bragging rights
Own two small Honda motorbikes, one of which exists entirely in parts. Worked in Chrysler's Archives in high school. Wrote a book about the GM RTS transit bus.
