    88" x 18" stainless bumper I made, lots of 1200 grit sand discs and it still has a few flaws, but that's ok.

    Hey there BMT, I just picked up my first old Mack. I have always been a lover of the old Bull Dogs. Mine is a 1961 B613T TD. The odometer reads just over 13,000 miles but I am guessing she stopped working along the way. The truck is solid with a couple small holes that will be an easy fix. She fires up with WD40 / Ether but wont stay running long. IT was stored about 10 years ago with heating fuel in her veins. The first project is to change all the filters and fluids so she get purrrr. I attached a few pics so everyone can take a look and give me your thoughts. I have already posted about tires and I am sure I will be a consistent question on here, so thanks in advance. Stoked to be here.

    After a very long build process, I finally got my 1969 AMX to the drag strip to make a few passes. Knowing there are at least a few other racers here I figured I would share it. I went Saturday to a test and tune/track rental and after getting the roll cage NHRA certified I was able to make a few shakedown passes. The first pass was a mess as I screwed up staging the car so it ran a 15.50 at 107 mph. For the second run I didn’t use the 2 step for my launch and was rewarded with a 10.70 at 123. For the third and final run the car went 10.26 at 134. I’m very pleased considering that was the cars third time down the track and this was my first time driving a 4-speed car at the track. I have only ever raced automatic trans cars and I believe my previous best was an 11.40 at 115. The car is. 1969 AMX with a N/A 431 inch amc engine, jerico 4-speed, Dana 60 rear on 28x9 MT slicks. So so what’s the word, has anyone else been out racing yet? It seems like some tracks are opening up. Andy

    This truck worked as a Magabar Truck in Lysite, Wyoming. When the boom was over in 1982 it was moved to a ranch in Wyoming where it has worked ever since.

    Perhaps I missed a comment, but I don't think anyone suggested removing eyes, hands, feet, etc. as a punishment (as is done in some Muslim countries). Rather, I believe the general thought is, treat a thief as.......a thief, i.e. the criminal that they are. If we tolerate crime, it only emboldens those to continue and worsen.

    Being busy working and raising a traditional family with my wife, I feel as though I may have missed something along the way. When and how have the republicans openly allowed racism into the party? Show me documented cases and I will not support them. My Mom and Dad thought me a long time ago that race doesn’t make the man (person) but that their character does. Maybe that’s why I have been blessed to work alongside so many races and nationalities through out the years. Skin color means nothing, moral character means everything.

    Hump work!! Cleaning, fixing and priming more parts. Sprayed about three gallons of primer so far. I now have five large shelves of parts ready to go in the hayloft. Started smoothing out the cab, amazingly it’s going pretty quick. Roof is done, cowl is just about there. It’s not taking too much effort as the panels were pretty straight going on. The cab back will take some effort. But, moving along.

    Here is the 1st Mack Superliner with Mack V8 built in Australia. Before and most recent pictures as a water cart are attached. It was bought by Joe Bromage transport, a Melbourne Aust fuel cartage contractor, who worked for Shell, local and country runs. Joe had about 10 all Mack trucks in his fleet. Around 1989 Joe sold his business to Cootes Transport, which grew to fuel and LPG distribution for Shell in Queensland, New Sth Wales and Victoria. No1 history after Joe sold to Cootes is unknown to me. It seems that Joe fitted a sleeper cab for the longer overnight fuel runs. After Cootes bought Bromage he repainted Joe's trucks to his blue colours Attached is a picture of the Supeliner with Cootes colours. Cootes was not a fan of the Mack V8's engine and within 1-2 years he sold all the Mack V8's, Superliners and Aussie Valueliners he bought from Bromage and stuck to the Mack 6 cyl R models, many being Valueliners. After Cootes sold it, it was repainted in the straight blue colour. It was for sale in 2018 and the vendor emailed these pictures. Neither he nor I knew it was no 1. If only!!! He eventually sold the water tank and pump set up and later he sold the bare Mack to a Mack collector, who will restore it. At some time in it's life cycle, the Mack V8 and gear box ( I dont know what box it was built with) were replaced with a Cummins 400 and 13 spd Road Ranger. The rear end and frame length are original, however it looks like the rear tandem was pushed back for the water tank set up. During it's life it had a sleeper cab fitted and repainted in the Cootes blue colours - a picture is attached with it's sleeper.

    Saturday morning a friend & I headed out to IA for a celebration of life for another friend who passed a few weeks back. Well this gathering was in Bettendorf which is about 70 miles from Mike Harbinson's place so we absolutely had to make a side trip down there. It was great to visit with son Mikey and Mike. It had been ATHS South Bend when I last spent time with Mike & and ATHS Auburn when I last seen Mikey and boy has he grown up! Kenny & I wandered around the yard a little & I taught him a little about the various trucks and such, He's a former cop and now works for Indiana DOC so trucks really aren't his thing. I had to get a pic with the infamous UPS MH and the other three are trucks that previously spent time at my place before heading to Mike's. The B61 wrecker served with a company that I worked with for 13 years. I bought the truck for Mike & he bought if from me. The F Model was mine that I sold to Mike and the C Model is one that Mike bought near me and I picked up and stored for him for a period of time. It's so difficult to believe that it had been so long since I'd seen these guys. Time is certainly moving at a rapid pace.

    Pro tip: Don't pick fights with the police and the probability of the police killing you shrinks to almost zero...and your skin color has nothing to do with it.

    Pictures from the neighborhood south of my place. Old tree by the side of the road with all sorts of animals carved into it. Vultures, bears, flamingo, squirrels, reptiles, more birds and turtles. Sort of interesting. Just up the street from the tree is a painted sign "When you are out of Schlitz, you're out of beer".

    I must have missed the part where the cop was arrested, there was a trial, and he was convicted of murder.

    …………I’m going to order one of these new DB5s. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Aston Martin Back in Production and Building Goldfinger DB5 Cars Mike Duff, Car & Driver / July 6, 2020 English sports-car maker Aston Martin has cheerful news from it's former HQ in Newport Pagnell, now the base for the company's Heritage division. The company has restarted limited production of the iconic DB5, 55 years after the last of the original run of cars was built. These are the first of the Goldfinger continuation cars, built with replicas of the gadgets that turned the DB5 driven by Sean Connery's James Bond in that movie into arguably the most famous film car of all time. While the replicas won't be street legal in most parts of the world, the company says it has already sold the vast majority of the limited-to-25 run, despite an "ex-works" price of about $3.4 million at current exchange rates. According to an Aston spokesperson, there are only a couple still up for grabs. In this time of coronavirus, enhanced precautions are being taken by those working on the DB5, as made clear by the images the company has released of mask-clad workers working well apart from each other. The U.K. is still under shelter-in-place lockdown, but factories are reopening under social-distancing protocols, and Aston Martin's Gaydon and Saint Athan plants have also restarted limited production. The DB5 Goldfinger is the latest of Aston's Continuation models, following on from the DB4 GT and DB4 GT Zagato, with the construction of each car taking around 4500 hours. We've already experienced some of the car's many Bond-inspired gadgets up close, many of which were designed by a team led by Chris Corbould, the Oscar-winning special effects director who has worked on 15 films featuring the famous secret agent. (Separately, Aston produced eight carbon-bodied DB5 replicas for stuntwork on the most recent Bond film, No Time to Die, which has been delayed until the fall.) For the Goldfinger cars, the list of additional equipment includes a smokescreen, revolving license plates, battering rams, and a removable passenger-seat roof panel for the infamous ejector seat. It also gets non-lethal replicas of the twin Browning machine guns that deploy through the film car's front turn signals, an oil-spray system that actually fires water, and a simulated tire slasher. Functions can be operated from within the car—which is mechanically almost identical to an original DB5—or via a remote control to enable owners to better see them in action. Deliveries to the first customers—many of whom, we expect, live in hollowed-out mountains stroking white cats—will begin early in the second half of the year. . .

    Maxidyne IS an elderly woman and now's about to call you sexist and racist!!! Maybe even disrespectful to your elders? She's up to her neck in blind indoctrination and is a lover of history and facts. Problem with her, and all liberals, is that history and facts are (Ironically) the Liberals enemy. Hence the goal of modern Liberals is to destroy history and rewrite it so it no longer condemns, and testifies, against them. History stings. That's why the statues of even the most honorable anti-slavery hero's are coming down. It's a war waging. I'm a recovered Democrat, I know how they think......for her sake she needs to snap out of it too before she dies in a state of ridiculous. Your giving the drunk another drink every time you argue. She wants to see a chink in the armor so she can feel right. She comes back for more drinks even after being kicked off this site multiple times. The reason she immerses herself in conservatives is because she needs to sober up...….. but can't quit what she's believed as "true" her whole life, much like a deep seated religion.

    Just revisited this story. I don't suppose you have the serial # for the 53 LTL? My dad and I bought an LTL out of Oroville a couple years back that was supposed to be one of Roys trucks. I'd love to be able to confirm if it was or not. It originally had a 275 in it. Thanks, Brad

    Well the problem starts right at the very start of the policemans body cam footage In Australia you dont have a choice or discussion about a breath test The laws very clear (as it should be) when you drive you must give a breath test on request, zero excuses or conversation "Blow into this" you blow into breath test machine No discussion about drinking, types of drinks or should I shouldn't I You refuse to your arrested and charged and cars impounded and your carted off The same for swab tests for drugs There is no discussion, no argument, its the law you must obey it The U.S of A needs to grow set and just enforce the law, it really is that simple All that appears to be happening in the U.S. at the moment is society is getting reduced to the lowest common denominator Paul

    If it’s all there and the body works, depending on running gear, it may be worth it. A lot of other things to consider as well, but if it’s within you capabilities and means, not a bad price. I built a roll back for my purposes over 20 years ago and tell everyone it’s the best thing I ever built, useful in so many ways. Just evaluate it honestly and bring someone with you who can give you their honest opinion. That always helps.

    I have follow this discussion from day one and to me it will make a script for a TV shown. It got me thinking what the great people of this country did during WW 2. The government ask the people to give up so many things to help war effort. Gasoline, meat, and clothing were tightly rationed. Most families were allocated 3 US gallons per week. Production of most durable goods, like new housing, vacuum cleaners, and kitchen appliances, was banned until the war ended. There was so much this people did to help with war effort you can write a novel. So we are at war against a virus call Covid 19 and the government ask people to social distance and wear a mask around other people to help to stop the spread of this virus. But a lot of people complain why should we follow the government ask. But those people 80 years ago did what was need to win the war. Rember there is no I in TEAM and we are all members of same TEAM a proud citizen of USA regards of race. religion belief, left wing. right wing. union member, non-union member, female, male . We are still proud citizen of this great country

    Who cut anybody down, you start by claiming your right and the rest of us wrong but then when presented with facts you then go on the poor me defense ?? if you want to sling mud expect some to come back, I would love to debate you, but your kind even when presented with the truth go into another universe and claim obscure crap, what has Trump done wrong, list it, not the BS liberal talking points, real provable bad things he has done a against America ?? or the people ?? and percentage wise white people are great white people have created most of everything, so why can't we toot our own horn, I should be shameful of working harder, being more determined to win is a bad thing, what do you want to reward being a failure ?????????

    Yep, me and my crew are off in Midwest city waiting for our State Patrol escort but we are having a great time and soon we will be on our way moving a Airplane part that will honor our Vets so again that is great too and then were off to move a Caboose that will go on display so you will standing on the sidewalk watching us preserve history, like I have said it's great to be on this side of the fence, due to my horrible non union job that you assume that I have I have seen the pyramids in Egypt, been to the mountains outside of Accra Ghana and hung out at Bob Marley's house, even met his son here in the USA only because I knew about his dads house, flown around the world on the biggest flying plane in the world, got any idea what it feels like to fly in a plane that weighs 1.3 million pounds ??? even stood inside the unfinished 225, I have done the transfer at sea to a pilot boat from a cargo ship while under way, have you ? and of course spent a year in Ireland and worked in Iraq and other destinations in Africa, been to France, Ukraine, Sweden, Kuwait,Netherlands and on and on what have you done ? Yep my non union scab job sure has been hard to take, oh since you made such a great living with your Union job how commercial property have you invested in ??? maybe you stay retired and be seen not heard.

    I’m with you Paul. We don’t have and never have had antenna or cable or satellite tv. At first because it was too expensive and now because you are bombarded with ads, agendas and the news is pretty much worthless. It’s about equal to the national enquirer in my opinion. Just flashy headlines to get you to look with absolutely no truth or facts behind it just feelings and party lines.

    It should be. When people are allowed to steal and commit other crimes against society it only emboldens them. It also enforces their disrespect for anybody or anything other than themselves. Next thing you know their way of life becomes our culture.
