aka: “the turbo-encabulator”

In the words of Alan Greenspan: “If you thought you understood what I just said, it’s clear that you misunderstood me.”

Take a minute and read the description below before watching. “Several years ago, Rockwell International decided to get into the heavy duty transmission business. We were getting ready to tape our first introduction video. As a warm up, the professional narrator began what has become a legend within the trucking industry. This man should have won an academy award for his stellar performance. Now remember this is strictly off the cuff, nothing is written down. I think you will enjoy this once in a lifetime performance from this gentleman…”
