    Started as a R-795 with a Mack Maxidyne V8 under the hood. Well, it still is a V8... A very neat and tidy swap.

    Just sharing for the love of the game.... Finding a "New Old Stock" piece that fits your rig is always a treat. They certainly don't package them like this any more. -Pete

    Got you all a couple pictures while dropping off a sandblaster I borrowed from a friend. Not sure if they drive, every few years they're parked somewhere else on his property. One or both of them are gassers.

    Stopped by on to see some of my friends and family when I was passing through and these pics were shared with me. The owner of the truck thought some thieves were hanging around his place because things were getting moved and messed with it at night. So he set up a game camera to see what was happening and he caught the perp. Then I saw these weird bunker things. At first I thought they were those potato cellars but seeing that they went on for miles and having a 6 foot fence and later seeing a sign that said it was an army depot I’d have to guess they were used for storing munitions?

    On display at the Mack Museum. The truck designation "97" (example R-797 or DM-897) would indicate this Thermodyne V8 ENDT866 engine was under the hood. My recollection is the engine should be a silver color and the gold color was for the Mack Maxidyne engine family. A nice bit of kit anyways.

    The B-81 was produced between 1955-1966. The heavy duty model replaced the Mack LJ and in turn, the B-81 was replaced by the DM series of trucks.

    As some of you may know, I have one of the 48 RD800 Macks that was used to haul tanks across the desert in Operation Desert Storm. Just by accident, I stumbled across the guy that actually drove my truck during the war on facebook. Sgt Robin Titus was the main driver of my truck. The truck was originally blue from the factory, as evidence of the build sheet I have for the truck, the firewall is still blue, and there is blue paint under the white where it is chipped. Sgt Titus said that truck was the only blue one there and the only one that was all Mack. 471st Transportation Company, truck #104. He sent me some pictures of the truck in country. He said I was lucky that I got the one he drove, because most of the other drivers didn't know how to drive. He already knew how to drive and was tasked with teaching the others how to drive, he said that was the reason he got to pick whichever truck he wanted. The first picture is how the truck looks currently, the other pictures are of the Macks over in the desert, the blue one in a couple of the pics is mine.

    Once they finally decide which types of emissions are really doing harm, yeah. If I remember correctly, we filter different things here than Europe because of a different set of guidelines/concerns/whatever. I've also heard that the environmental impact of setting up the network of DEF stations, moving DEF, fuel used on regen cycles, etc. may have negated any benefit that DPFs provide. I do wish we could legislate things based on looking at entire problems/solutions.

    Bought this at Hersey a number of years ago, all about how he got the whale and how it basically financed his first race truck. Here is his Great White Shark tour truck.

    During the cold war, the U.S. Army purchased a variety of Mercedes-Benz trucks operating out of its German bases ranging from the G-wagen to heavy trucks. Those "L" series Mercedes trucks in the picture may look dated but are "built like a Mack Truck". .

    A cordless Milwaukee "Sawzall" and a four pound hammer will do the job quite well. Damage is relative to the operator's skill. If you care to post a bit more pertinent information someone may be along to offer tangible assistance.

    No the story implies they weren't a contract bid purchase. They were a last minute "hey we need trucks can you get us a few?" These trucks weren't built for the military, but they wound up filling the job last minute. More of a cash transaction sort of deal than negotiated bid contract.

    We went to the greatest antique truck show on Earth in Macungie, Pa, then to Connecticut to see the redhead's parents and some of her old friends, then on the way back we stopped in Bethlehem and looked around the old Bethlehem Steel site, then toured the Mack Museum before we made it home. It was fantastic. We saw this in Macungie- We saw this in Ct. She took me to this place up on that mountain when I met her in the early 80's. We saw this in Bethlehem. And this was at the Mack museum-

    How many of you saw this truck years ago? It's a 1967 that was used to haul a frozen whale and frozen 400 year old sea bass around to early shopping malls as a side show. I saw it in 1970 in Sacramento, the owner Malone let me set in the drivers seat. If not the first it was one of the first show truck semi's ever built. Inside was all diamond tuck and chrome.

    Something like if you rob a gas station and they have you on camera,that’s illegal.Since you have a non intelligent person on a roll,these undocumented kids that are coming here with their so called parents or family members what proof do they bring with them to prove that these kids are really their own.

    This rig served as a yard dog for A. Duie Pyle. Has a lift fifth wheel for getting the job done. Duie Pyle then sold it to a trailer manufacturer. The present owner says it has around 58,000 miles on the clock. Low miles but plenty of hours. Then again, the 237 Maxidyne is probably just broke in.

    The whole reason that Scot came into existence is that the Irving's figured that it would be cheaper to build trucks than to buy them. The JD Irving company basically owns much of the Maritimes: they have a substantial empire based on oil, paper and agriculture/fishing. Midland and RST Transport are Irving companies. Midland is a van company and RST moves tankers. I've been told that the Midland Scots were ordered with Formula 290 and 300 Cummins with a 9 speed. I know of two Midland owner operators; one had a 350 Cummins, later replaced with a 400, and another had a Detroit. They bought new and probably received better terms. The Irvings currently own Freightliner dealerships. I used to see those tractors every now and then back when I was growing up. The city of Toronto also owned some of their fire trucks, and kept them as reserve units up until....I'm going to say the early 90's. I used to think those trucks were ugly as sin. Now I think that that big cab with the integrated sleeper may have been ahead of its time.

    Now the government has gone from calling them "undocumented immigrants" to describing them as "unlawfully present immigrants". However, most still call them illegal aliens or illegal immigrants.....i.e. what they are. Ms. Lightfoot should be arrested for breaking the law.

    Correct. The US was ramping up for war and realized they didn’t have enough trucks to move tanks quickly across the vast desert. They reached out to Mack because they were the only US manufacturer that would have heavy spec trucks in inventory for immediate shipment. Also, all this was top secret while it was going on. Mack was actually pulling trucks out of inventory that people had on order in lots of cases. I’ve got many more pics of the trucks over in the desert, but they are from a closed group Facebook page and I haven’t got permission to post them. Sgt Titus is the only one that has given me permission to post the pics he sent me. Here is a YouTube video of the trucks over there. I don’t think my truck is in any of the video.

    Thanks for posting. I knew of Scot Trucks (especially the Midland fleet) but I never saw the cabovers or the off road trucks. We lost a lot of good truck manufacturing here in Canada over the years.

    I finally made it to Macungie for the first time, what a great show! Some really beautiful trucks here. Here's an RD800 glider kit, I'll bet there was a lot of salivating over this one.

    If illegals are stopped at the border, then any human trafficking is also stopped at the border......end of story. It's all about enforcing our already existing laws......and sending a strong message. Then, 95 percent of this will end.
