          I have to admit even as an American who was raised with and worked with standard tools my whole life those crazy thousands and ten thousands measurements are silly. It’s time we go metric.

                                        sending this truck to the smithsonian is such a massive waste. it will never move under it's own power again. i saw this truck when i was little in st. louis and the thought of it wasting away in a museum is depressing.

                                            fun fact.. pistons needs to be a bit oval. so the measurement shown here is .. meaningless.
