    CARIBOU — Of all the things undergoing the rigors of spring cleaning, make sure your car is one of them.
    “Wash the undercarriage of your car, get all that salt, dust, dirt and debris out of there,” said Mason Huck, a junior at the Caribou High School and an automotive student at the Caribou Regional Technology Center. Huck cautioned that the salt and gunk from winter roads could lead to rust.

Old Trucks vs. New Trucks | Print |

    New trucks are better than old trucks because they have a lot more horse power. Old trucks may not have as much power to haul a big load. If they do not have the power the truck cannot haul the load. New trucks have a lot more horse power than old trucks. New trucks are better because if you need to haul a big trailer it has the power you need. If you needed to haul a 5th wheel trailer with an old truck, it might spin or it just would not move. If you wanted to haul a 5th wheel trailer with an old truck, your motor would be revved up, your RPM’s would be high, but you would blow your motor before you move far.
    The old dump trucks may not run as good as new dump trucks. Old dump trucks many not have as many parts for them in stock or shops. New dump trucks have more space to put dirt in the back of it. Old dump trucks are more likely to break down because the motor has run for a long time and the motor is worn out. That’s why old dump trucks don’t run as well.
    Editor’s note: Reid’s story was regretfully omitted from last week’s issue of Newspapers in Education. The Aroostook Republican deeply regrets the omission, and would like to thank Reid for his fantastic comparison piece on the merits of Old Trucks versus New Trucks.
