Those are not shingles, those are cedar shakes and can likely survive between 100 and 200 MPH wind speeds.

Even a good shingle can take a 100 MPH hit... Of course not all that many shingles are good by the standards of the ones I used to nail on by the hundred. (Seriously, Got paid 7.00/hundred)

I suspect that old Federal ain't going fast enough to blow shingles off. Drove one years ago.

Probably not going to hit a 100, but it has a new Cat with a Allison 6 speed. That ain't stock.

Nice I would take it, Kind of reminds me of the old Diamond Rio we used as a yard truck many years ago.
