    I found this picture a couple days ago,and thought it was worth sharing. I've never seen this particular add-on sleeper before,anyone have any details on it? Must have been mighty cramped in there! I remember seeing a Crackerbox GMC with something similar when I was a kid.........................................Mark

    Nowadays, 40 hours isn't even considered full-time. I hope to only work 40 hours when I'm getting close to retiring and want to cut back my runs. Of course he will still brag about how many jobs HE created while overlooking the number of businesses that folded as a result of HIS policies.

    Funny the way the law is written, if we hire an "guest worker" we do not have to provide any health insurance to them by order of the Federalies! They give us a $3000.00 bonus for hiring non Americans. Just need an Amnesty Card. "Under the ACA, employers may be required to pay penalties if their employees are eligible for tax credits to purchase health insurance through the law’s new marketplaces. But those who gain provisional legal status under Obama’s immigration plan are not eligible for health care subsidies — The White House says this will help create an incentive for employers to hire those with provisional legal status. This will help them acclimate into the U.S. work force and society ". Paul

    Today I used a wire brush attachment with my power drill and cleaned/stripped the underside of the hoods, then painted the undersides. The tops of the hoods were stripped to bare metal yesterday. The paint job underneath isn't the greatest, but I wasn't worried about fully stripping, prepping, and priming under them. I just wanted to get the rust and loose stuff off and then make sure the surface was clean before painting. It looks better than it did before and now the color will match the finished product on top of the hood and the cab. ETA: I was scratching my head, wondering why the fresh paint was crinkling in a few spots right after I applied it. The only guess I could come up with was the steel was too cold, which is weird because I put the hoods by the stove for a while and when I started painting, they were warm to the touch. Perhaps they cooled quickly when I moved them away from the stove for painting. Oh well. I'll live with it. We will be prepping the tops of the hoods on Monday (one side will need body work and filler), then priming them. At least we have a bare metal surface to work with, though. After that, we start on the doors. I'm hoping we have the doors completely prepped and primed by sometime next week. Then it's on to the cab.

    G.M.Smith in The Toronto area tried to order in an Australian Mack Titan years ago to fill the void left by the then cancelled RW and RD800 models. Never materialized. Too costly and no engineering for making the truck left hand drive. Mack Canada heavy haul customers cried for years wanting the Australian designed Titan and Superliner for heavy haul usage. The Australian sleepers are also nicer then our US designs with button tuck panels, windows, heck even 60" midrise sleepers on the Titans. All we get here is a 32" coffin.

    Any thing is possible Vlad. In Israels early years Trucks and Armour were assembled from parts from depots and military scrap yards all over Europe and the Middle East.

    So after thanksgiving I always take the turkey carcass and boil it down for a few hours, then strain it and save the stock to make home made turkey pot pies or turkey soups, etc. Decided to try something- took all the scraps and the ribs from the prime rib, and boiled those down for a few hours. Strained them and saved the stock. Right now, as I type this, the stock is in the crock pot with a few pounds of stew meat. Gonna toss in some potatoes, carrots, onions, celery and drop biscuits later on today. The house smells so good I wanna eat the walls.

    The R model was doomed when they gave the EPA a bigger set of teeth and our younger generation doesn't want to drive a truck without being as big a a greyhound bus inside with every creature comfort they have in the extended mega cab pick ups they drive when I started you considered your self lucky if the truck had power steering.

Many years ago I came across a 1937 school bus deep in the woods, got the front section. Started a rat rod project with the cowl and hood tops, it has the deluxe dash. Project abandoned for now. I used the hood sides on one of my homebuilt tractors. FW
