No idea of the load (a date would be a bit helpful), but that's a Kasgro Red & Ready. This summer a couple with similar loads hung out by Hunters Point, the angles precluded me getting any good photos, however.

Based on the 'clean' COTS lube stencil and the 'wheel dot' stencil 1979 plus. Surely a large electrical item, for perhaps LILCO.

Here's some more info, but on the car, not the load. I think, via the much-proven 80s cyberpunk tactic of ENHANCE!, it's KRL 25960. If not, and ENHANCING! has failed me, it at least provides the class and a date ballpark; post-1999.

Yes, sure looks like a KRL product. I emailed them, but the answer is "We don't keep these types of records." What is'cyberpunk tactic of ENHANCE'? Thanks.

It's a joke, back in 80s cyberpunk movies and other detective shows, i.e SVU, they'll zoom into a picture. In real life, not many photos are high-def that zooming into them will produce anything other than a blur, but i was able to make out 25690, therefore the tactic actually worked.

Sometimes i forget that this fourm is full of people who wouldn't understand most of my references.
