  1. Since Covid19 has killed all the truck shows for most of the year it was time to give the old dog a bath and groom before going to sleep for the summer. As with any old dog she was dirty and dusty from just laying around, just waiting to go to a few shows. So had to take the dog to the detailer, sign on building, and get polished and waxed because things are starting to open up again cause of Covid19. Wanted to give my neighbor some much needed work. It took four days to detail, bugs actually etched into the paint, glass water etched, polish aluminum parts and wheels. Turned out a lot better t

  2. 1970 Autocar Cummins 335 Roadranger 13 and Hendrickson suspension Holmes 750 extended boom Just bought it today only pulled out of service in January of 2019 because owner retired. The owner who is 81 was forced to retire because he has extreme difficulty getting in and out of the truck since he broke his neck at age 79.He's a tough old dude and a pleasant man to converse with.

  3. Newest addition to collection 1964 Mack C615 . Mack made only 1589 C models during 1963-1965 the C615 was limited to 208 made. This truck is in original condition always garage kept only one driver (the original owners son). This truck has a Mack END864 V-8, Quadraplex, looks to be a 44k camelback, double frame, power steering. 11.00x20 tires, the filler panels for the fenders are there just not currently installed.

  4. Finally working the hood halves for the top, the two bottom panels are cut and now at a shop getting louvers pressed. Used the original front and rear hood bows and hand forming the three center ones for each side. The two pieces for each side will have 29-3/16 huck rivets running the length holding the panels together.

  5. I always thought it would be cool to own a C-model and it happened today. A friend of mine decided to sell his dad's old truck. They used it to haul grain to Duluth, MN back in the day, then it was converted into a motorhome. It now has a 237 with a triplex. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it, but the price was right.

  6. So we have been trapped in the house for the past 45+ days. The kids have been doing home study, and get outside when they can as the weather here in eastern Pennsylvania has been for the birds lately. Half a day of sun and then six days of rain. Wash, rinse, repeat. Large (now 16) and Medium (now 15) are pissed off they can't go hang out with their buddies and are suffering because of it. Large (10th grade) also began Welding at the Votech school this year (one of the hardest programs to get into.....) and he grew to LOVE his classes between September and March when they locked down the schoo

  7. I actually started putting my chassis together...this will be interesting. It was tough to get it all leveled up because the right rail is slightly sway-backed.

  8. DONE, DONE, DONE!!!! Final patches on the lower windshield pillars installed and cleaned up the gutters. Test fit the doors and all is well with no rubbing. Obviously, I need to tweak a lot of little stuff. Looking at my last couple of posts, it doesn’t look like a lot of progress. But, there was, as it was all the hard stuff that shows. I am amazed I brought this cab back and now my big headache is behind me!!

  10. B813sx I picked up this fall. Heavy 65k rears. I will most likely have it painted and build a new replica dump body for it eventually. Otherwise, its a very solid truck. My daughter loves it!

  11. I just wanted to thank everyone on this site that helped me along the way. And also show off my new playtoy. I found this truck about 4 months ago. It ran real well and had a real solid cab. It needed all of the front body pieces except the grill shell. I think the PO sent them out to be sandblasted and never got them back. I spent some time doing bodywork which I hate doing and probably could've done a better job but I wanted a driver. Something I dont have to be worried about parking at a show. And something my kids can climb in and not worry about a scratch. I was able to take it for a ride

  13. Four wheel driving here is a bit different than in the states. You can pretty much go where ever you want, anytime you want. Mountains, beach, bush. No worries! Also different types of vehicles. My son Maxim loves his Nissan safari and l was more the Land Rover defender type. We spent a lot of time driving around this amazing country.

  14. After several set backs on the hood parts and pieces, I ended up hand hammering a 90* 3/8 lip on the bottom panel added a stiffener on the inside. I was going to have louvers on the lower panels but the guy/shop I took them to did such a lame crooked job I had to throw those panels in the scrap and start over cutting new ones. And the next closest shop that could press louvers is a long way off-so no louvers. But this is the hood I built below-did the best I could do, next stop is the finish metal work and paint. It's a Long Way to the Dogs A$$ looking through the wi

  15. We- meaning me, Zina from Florida, and Ollie from Florida- went to the Tri-State ATHS Show in Clearbrook, Va. today. Ollie was thrilled- I can't resize the pictures with my phone, so they might be too big. I saw a V8 Mack there. Nice B model- I thought this was a great paint job, but it's actually a wrap. I saw a few dignitaries too. Like farmer52 Fuzzy Buzzard Underdog, talking to Ollie. Here's a fine looking Dodge, and the nicest D860 GMC I've ever seen, this restoration is just fantastic.

  17. Well after 22 years dragged the 68 out of its corner of the barn. My son had been bugging me to get it going again and volunteered to do it in his barn-with my unskilled help of course. Stock 289, 3 on tree. Only thing I did to it was add two shocks to front axle and 2A" lift when I bought it in 95, for 4500 bucks!

  19. Late Wednesday night round midnight I was driving south along the Hume hwy to home in Melbourne Victoria in my car, stopped for a quick one, 2 B doubles and a single trailer truck passed me in formation tailing each other - a quick stream of bright lights on a clear night. I didn't see the make of the trucks. I got back on the road and caught up to them (with some excess speed) and as I came up to the side of the single trailer and truck this is what I saw, made my night. We followed each other approx 100 klms into Melb. Seeing this working Valueliner V8 (same as Dan Thomas's Aussie Mack) was

  20. Wow, it's already December- Me and Zina from Florida took another trip down to the Keystone Antique Truck and Tractor Museum Saturday to see what was new. Took my grandson too. Saw a couple of big Mack trucks. I think this is the one Dave was working on the last time we were there.

  22. Well I retired from trucking and couldn't be happier. The whole state of the union sickens me nowadays. Got a job in a gold mine running equipment above ground and when on overtime my coffee mug makes me the same money $240,000 dump trucks make around here, LOL Anyway, been loading these. There is a Superliner and two CL Elites still working in here. All E9 V8's and I assume 65,000 Mack rears. The Superliner is on Camelback and the CL is on solid trunion. They also have Stars with big rears and solid walking beams and one with planetary rears. The other reason I q

  24. That same day we catched the final destination, met the owner and I finally saw the aim of the trip myself. Can't say I was really excited but the truck more looked alive than dead. The next day we installed the rear crank seal housing since the owner removed it planning to change the seal but didn't, flywheel, clutch set and the tranny. I brang a chain winch along the other things but the point to attach it was the body's front board which was not a perfect location to hang the tranny up. As a follow we put plenty of labour getting it in place. Having experience of installing clutch on my R-m

  25. I haven't posted on here in a while. I've been fortunate to see a lot of work come through and have stayed busy. After getting the new tie rod ends (required putting the knuckles on a CNC and hogging out the taper about 1/16") the 56 B-42 is running strong! Here are a couple of pictures of it rigged up. It's a bit hard to see but the second picture is a couple of 1800lb white jade foo dogs I transported to a local botanical garden.

Village Mayor and new town constable came over and the constable threw up on the mayor shoes. 2nd good event. All I was doing was prepping a dozen pigs for their diner dates. Need OD to smoke some up for me. Ended up with a bit over 400 pounds of meat so far. Here is my bacon and sausage pics. Won't show the pigs hanging around in the cold room being quiet.

  31. Back at it after a busy season with the new job and a friend's project the consumed a lot of time. But, I haven't quit and jumped back in this week getting organized again. This doesn't look like much , but it's the first repaired panel permanently re-attached. The cab needs to go over on it's back one more time for a bunch small things to be completed and undercoating. I'm very optimistic for having the cab ready for paint come this spring and my motivation is increasing about it>

  34. A little while ago ,I was moving things around in the yard and thought it would be a good time to take a Class pic. Class for classic or classy, your choice. The Dumptruck and red and white float are working trucks. The red and white R688 gets used almost every day when I"m busy. The dumptruck doesn't get used as much. Just a day or 2 a week. This time of year they don't get used at all. I don't want salt and Magnesium chloride on them. Magnesium chloride is a snow melting agent they use on the roads here. Its way worse than salt. The snowplow is retired as of April this year. Not

  38. As i said many times in the past there're just a few Mack trucks in Russia and only a finger count of old ones so I keep the track on the most of them. A few years back a friend of mine sent me a picture from the net with orange Cruiseliner with Russian plates. Those indicated registration of the city of Ekaterinburg which is a kind of a capital of the Ural mountains region. A bit later another friend met the owner on some local truck forum and supplied me with contact info. I made a phone call, learned the specifications and the chassis # and was also told that the truck was selling. But the

  45. Yep, what a waste of time and tax payer money, Trump will be President when the next election comes up and hopefully be reelected, Democrats sure care about the average person, just waste more money that WE have to pay back, I cannot even say what I feel honestly about the Democrat/liberal losers because I would most likely get banned for my comments. Relish your day you will regret it.
