Carbon Criminal: My Next Pickup, International MXT in ATX

Written by Ken Altes

This mammoth 2008 International MXT pickup makes me question whether the earth really needs me ton adopt a responsible, carbon neutral lifestyle.

Bigger than life at 10,000 lbs., a six liter diesel V8, an Allison auto transmission and 4×4.

Wondering what kind of business I could get into to justify this truck.  Also, why do I want to say, “My pickup is bigger than yours?” 2008 International MXT Pickup for sale Austin TX front 2008 International MXT Pickup for sale Austin Texas

Original 1946 Ford Pickup Truck at an ATX Cafe

Written by Ken Altes

I learned to drive in a similar 1946 Ford pickup truck when I was 12. For a few years, a coupe of times each summer I would spend a few days a hundred or so miles NE of Dallas, in Pittsburg, Texas. I helped an old fellow tend his small herd of cattle, pigs and cucumbers on a small farm that he leased about seven miles from town. At first, I drove only in the pastures, then on the sandy roads, then finally on the rural two lane highway to his house at the outskirts of the small town. It was a great learning experience. His truck was pretty worn and it’s top speed was about 37 mph before the front end vibrated too much.
