  2. Hippy (70mackMB) is behind the wheel either making vrooom vrooom noises or just confirming that the dog is further away in a B compared to his MB. Rick is explaining to Bob (Red Horse) the secret for driving double pup trailers around from an out of business freight company. Apparently, wearing black shoes, black pants, black shirt, black hat and sunglasses makes you invisible! Rick did the Ballston Spa and Worcester show double weekend with his Freightshaker and trailers.

  3. My new truck finally came in the mail on Friday and I got to spend the long weekend with it. Has been sitting around not run since 2000, 800k original on the truck. Really a pretty solid old truck although nowhere near as nice as my last one (I was really spoiled with that truck). Someone had previously tried to get it running with no success so the first step is to dig in and make that happen. Motor turns, and I've never had a Detroit that would turn but wouldn't run. Here's the first pictures of delivery and initial assessment.First things first with a Detroit and that's freeing up the injec

  4. What model truck is it? Please give us the chassis number as there is a substantial difference between an L model and an E model. If you want to do a resto-mod then do what has been suggested here and go with a modern chassis and just move the sheet metal over. But, there are plenty of 40's era trucks running around that are perfectly functional and safe that are still using the OEM equipment. The truck is already a 12v system, but it is positive ground. My $.02 is its not worth the hassle to change it to negative ground, but if that is what he wants to do "hit it Willy". As for

  5. Anyone that knows me , knows I have a soft spot for International Loadstars. My father always had them, and I got my CDL on one. Last week I had a Loadstar Sundance cross my path. It has a special decor package that was offered in late 75, 76 and 77.(I think) It had an upholstered dash, door panels, two tone paint . The frame and wheels were painted the same colour as part of the cab. To me a Sundance was like a unicorn, people said they where around , but I had never seen one . Now I am fortunate enough to have my own Sundance. It needs a little attention, but

  7. I was out and about on the hwy a couple of days ago (yes I am allowed out every now and then) anyway a thought occurred to me This truck with its super poxy mirrors and the like made to look as ugly as a hat full of ass holes in the so called name of fuel economy, does all this poxy plastic crap work because as I drive along the Hwys in Australia I noticed that not only dont Australian Macks have this crap hanging off them we put proper mirrors and big air intakes up each side on new Mack Tridents and Superliners and our motors have a different chip to give more power and fuel economy is j

  8. Impressive, but how long before Hackett sells off Ford's interest to fund domestic EV development? On the bright side I don't think such a sale would slow Ottosan down too much. You never know, it might open the door to a strategic alliance with a global truck manufacturer..............

  9. The Postal Service’s New Electric Mail Truck Trucks.com / October 9, 2017 The first photos of a prototype mail delivery truck indicate that the U.S. Postal Service may be going electric. The photos were taken recently by a Trucks.com reader and electric vehicle enthusiast as a postal service worker delivered mail in Leesburg, Va., about 30 miles northwest of Washington, D.C. The truck is a prototype undergoing road tests in the USPS’ Next Generation Delivery Vehicle Program. It most likely was the offering from a team that includes truck body manufacturer VT Hackne

  13. Interesting article. Charlie Sorensen was Henry Ford's right hand man in the early days and worked for Ford Motor Company for more than three decades starting as a pattern maker and production man. "Cast Iron" Charlie worked on the Model "T" and was instrumental in developing the moving assembly line, in fact, Sorensen and others took some credit for the assembly line but history gives the credit to Henry Ford. Later when Edsel Ford took over the management of Ford, Sorensen sided with Edsel against Henry Ford and Harry Bennett the pugnacious leader of the secretive and viole

Sears Canada going out of business, laying off 12,000 The Toronto Star / October 10, 2017 After struggling since June 22 to find a buyer, Sears Canada has thrown in the towel, announcing it will shut down. Once a titan of Canadian retail, Sears Canada announced Tuesday that it is going out of business, putting 12,000 people out of work and shuttering all operations nationwide. Among the first to lose their jobs will be most of the 800 people at head office near Dundas Square, who will be let go next week. Liquidation sales at stores are scheduled to begin Oct

  16. Not sure exactly what performance your boss is expecting to get out of a truck pushing 80 years old but before spending a Lot of time and money I would inspect your current brake system and service it. Drum brakes work fine for a parade truck. Your wheel cylinders are probably half seized and brake drums are probably rusty from sitting. If you get it working properly it will probably be good enough.

  19. The Euclid factory in Motherwell, outside Glasgow, Scotland . General Motors, acquired Euclid Road Machinery on September 30, 1953, and made it a division of GM on January 1, 1954. In the mid-1950s, GM built a new factory for Euclid at Hudson, Ohio. GM then ended Euclid production in Scotland.

  21. I was searching loadstar information and just happened across the post. There was a youtube video that I think is the same truck. Anyways just thought I would share a couple pictures of my 1976 IH 1700 Loadstar Sundance. it has 309XX miles and from what i can tell was sold new to a farmer around Terre Haute, IN. It has the MV 404 two barrel Holley and an Eaton 5 +2.. I bought it four years ago from a from a contractor who used it for a while. I have converted the 9.00-20 tires to 10 R 22.5 to get away from the split rims and have just be trying to clean it up here and there. The only major ad

  22. IMHO this makes it a little harder to bash Volvo after this introduction. There are a few loose ends to take care of though such as heavy haul and assurance of Mack components and vendor components remaining available.
