While this isn't about a Classic Car - this seemed a good place to drop this - so I did.

Totally classic, sometimes when mechanical items are made way too well, they mysteriously disappeared

LOL, that video was a blast. The whole truck cab was on a suspension to isolate road bumps.
Since then they figured out that an air suspension seat is cheaper.

Looked it up, you are correct! Probably helps with the drivers that tag team, those sleeper cabs would probably get bouncy otherwise

Exactly. You see it on over-the-road trucks. Not so much on regular tractors and vocational trucks.

It's kinda cool when you see them on the road. The cab is fairly steady while the chassis bounces underneath it. I'm sure it helps reduce driver fatigue and allows them to keep them focused on their job.
