It's a blogspot site that Joe created for us to try and track down the trucks that were used in the show, Scat. Unfortunately, despite knowing the license numbers for the first, second and third season GMC General tractors, we've not had much luck so far.

the GMC was probably used in other shows, repainted etc.. We know the trailer was used in Airwolf and Street Hawk.
I been looking for the one I seen a few years ago. It was exact. Even had the pass side door.

man if we can find it someone restore it and bring it to a knight rider festival with a show of kitt replica driving out the flag semi again it would be so nice to see that. but keep it restored like at planet hollywood or somewhere that you know its not going anywhere for years.

It would seem that the truck that was used as Goliath in Goliath Returns was reused in Mouth of the Snake, as it still has a blanking plate where the logo should be. :good:
