    OK. I will take the bait. Who are the "undesirables" that need to be dismissed? We have personal politics AND political correctness? How can we have both at the same time? "Coupled with incessant blabbering about nothing, or the same thing over and over really gets annoying and dispatches participation." Boy, I am in deep because I keep talking about Mack Trucks. I better do some thinking on this...

    So if we aren’t a wealth of knowledge when it comes to Mack trucks we shouldn’t participate since it will make the “original troupe” upset because it annoys them to answer the same questions or the person asking is only taking from the site? Should we not be able to visit about anything on the odds and ends forums with our friends on here? If the answer is yes to either of those questions say bye bye bmt, Mack trucks and the history behind them because if you don’t welcome in the “new troupe” the old troupe is going to die off not having passed any of this along to be carried forward.

    Back in those days I was so poor I made "Momma's ring. That's right. a 16 penny nail bent around a railroad spike I'd picked up alongside the track by the house and spray painted it gold. Shoulda seen the look on her face when I gave it to her. Thought she was gonna crown me king for sure right then and there!!! I actually did that before giving her the "real" ring. It too had to be smallerized to fit but since then it's been biggerized three separate times over the years. Swear the damned thing looks like it should be in her nose rather than around the finger. Congratulations on the engagement but I think you probably knew that already. Next time you get in the area yell at me. Phone number is the same but new phone has a ringer I can actually hear now.

    In reality the site is not what it used to be. Personal politics and political correctness has taken it's toll on this and many other dedicated forums. Coupled with incessant blabbering about nothing, or the same thing over and over really gets annoying and dispatches participation. Pretty much gone are the crowd whom formerly looked forward to the BMT site as a knowledge base and source of entertainment. This has been replaced by people whom only partipate when they have a problem with no desire to share in the comraderie fostered in the early days. Personal politics and political correctness dealt this and many other dedicated forums a death blow being allowed to fester like an open and untreated wound. All this is easily verfied just looking back at the membership roster for names and dates of last participation. Still a lot of nice people here whom try to add but far more solely on the take. It can be better but it needs driven that way and this includes ridding the site of undesirables. Site moderation with a set of balls hanging on em would be a great first step.

    Worked at Mack Truck STL back in 1977, dealt with the Old Dogs until gave up mechanic in 98 as had gone thru a change of profession in 96 and could no longer do both. Miss the old Bulldogs.

    Might still be some love there? Most scorn women would kill you with the Death of a Thousand Cuts, not a single coup de grace shot to the temple. Congrats O.Dog!

    I've often wondered how many gillions of tons of freight was hauled with 200hp or less through the years. So many whining crybabies in the workforce these days I'm not surprised 460hp is not enough.
