IHC = Farmall, too fast for the field too slow for the road.

Alot of nicknames were geographicaly based.These are how I remember them up here.John

Autocar-Acar

Brockway-Husky

Freightliner-Shaker or Freightshaker

GMC-Jimmy or Big Jimmy

IHC-Binder most common, short for hay binder.Cornfield cadillac and 13 letter manure spreader.

KW-Kdubbya

Mack-Puppy dog, Super dog, Big dog

Pete-Petercar

Lots of others too.Trailers had nicknames.Flatbeds were skateboards or just wagons, as in little red wagon or covered wagon.Tankers were thermos bottles.Reefers were garbage haulers (One breakdown and that high dollar produce turns to garbage).Engines had nicknames too.1693s @425hp were Big Kitties.3408 were just O8s, as in "never late with an 08".KTA Cummins were special K's, and with the high option cost new, plus the high rebuild cost, they really were pretty special,lol.
