  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. About a month ago I got word from a friend that Boughton's B model was up for sale. The truck has been parked for 16 years. They bought it from Greco some 30+ years ago to move crushers around the pit. As soon as I heard the news I jumped on the phone and inquired about it. We hammered out a deal and I got it home this weekend. The hard part was keeping it quiet for a month, not on my end so much, but as soon as it got pulled out of the barn last week everybody knew about it. I was getting pictures and texts about it from all over the place and it was out that I bought it. Got it home this we

I had seen a shiny R model pulling a dump whiz by the shop a few times, could never get a close look, well today, when he wizzed by, I grabbed my camera and jumped into my truck and began persuit... I have him in my sights, now just to stalk (get it, corn stalk! HaHa) to his destination! Looks even better up close...it really looks as if it could driven from a truck show! The trailer too! Interior was just as nice... The guy bought the truck new and TAKES care of it! The trailer too, it is over 25 years old and I thought it was a new one!

  10. So I read an article of an immigrant girl spouting off on how she gets a college education for free yet paid only 300.00 in taxes and she's illegal...living in the US I was always taught that you never discuss politics and religion with folks yet always be respectful . However I am angry. I was raised by a traditional grandmother and grandfather on a farm. We were taught to work as hard as you can for as long as you can.. never talk back to your elders, respect is earned and not given, and nothing is free. I paid for my entire education with the help of student loans because my fa

Well my father was like a kid in a candy store wanting to exchange gifts with everyone that night, mind you the youngest grandchildren are in high school and college or on there own. So first thing he does is give me the sign for my new Barn which I thought was great. Then he said there is more and everyone stopped and he gave me a small gift bag, In it was the title and all the paper work to his B-61 that is now mine. Surprised was an understatement for my reaction but touched by the gift. To me it's always his truck but

  12. Well, I found a truck I couldn't walk away from... I found this pup destined to be chopped up in NY. I made a deal and trailered her home with the CL613. I was wondering if anybody has seen it running around the CT area? Maybe even a picture? I was told it just hauled their cranes and big excavators up I95 in CT. Tag says custom built for The Stamford House Wrecking Company. Mack E9 powered with 18 speed and 58k camelback. 5.32 ratio. It is in very good shape despite is rugged appearance. 290k original miles. The wife says to me, "What are you gonna do with another one??" I just told her

  13. Hello everyone. I told a story of my Mack truck that I had just bought and left it with the guy that I bought it from to make sure everything was ok with it cause it had sat in his shop for 23 years. I agreed to leave it with him wail it was there a week later he called me and told me the building had burnt down with the truck in it he gave me my money back dealt with insurance he got paid for it and agreed to sell it to me as is for 500 dollars. I pondered on fixing it up or not and have taken the job and here are the pic of it before and after and it does have the Fulton visor on it I was as

  14. 55 years ago,in 1960,Pulley Freight Lines, a refrigerated carrier based in Des Moines,IA took delivery of 40 B-61 Macks. 22 years later,a 14 year old kid from Morning Sun,IA was looking for components for the B-61 he was rebuilding,when he ran across an ad in the Sunday Des Moines Register for a rough but running 1960 B-61. After a few phone calls,the kid,his Grandpa and his Dad went to look at the old Mack. It had last been used,or more accurately abused,in the guys logging business.It had been parked for a couple years beside his house in downtown Des Moines.The body had no straight panels

  15. OK, so the find story. Back then I was a Trooper assigned to the Aviation Unit, I've retired since. We had three Cessna 182's we did various things with, including marijuana eradication. Our Narcotics Unit had found a grow in the Northwestern part of the state and set up on to try an catch the guy growing it as it was on public land. Days go by and they catch the guy tending his grow on a Sunday.. I got called out to pick up another Trooper as a spotter that afternoon because they want to make sure they cut it all down and there aren't anymore hidden grows. We get there and the ground guys are

  19. You're a 19 year old kid. You are critically wounded and dying in the jungle somewhere in the Central Highlands of Viet Nam . It's November 14, 1965. LZ (landing zone) X-ray. Your unit is outnumbered 8-1 and the enemy fire is so intense from 100 yards away, that your CO (commanding officer) has ordered the MedEvac helicopters to stop coming in. You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns and you know you're not getting out. Your family is half way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you'll never see them again. As the world starts to fade in and out, you kn

  21. Dear Special Snowflakes, I wanted to take a minute to write you specifically, so that you would know that your feelings matter to me. I know the past weeks have been really super, incredibly, terribly, horribly hard for you. You believed that Hillary Clinton would finally break that non-existent glass ceiling and that the warm and fuzzy snuggles you’ve had since President Obama came to office would keep on keeping on. Beer summits, Lin-Manuel Miranda free verse nights at the White House, and free weed for all, this is what you’d hoped Hillary would bring you; that and possibly turnin

  22. Every year our family does a family reunion weekend at a state park, last year was the first time my wife and I camped for the weekend. I've spent plenty of nights in a tent over the years hiking and backpacking but it was a new experience for Jen and our pup...all 90 pounds of newfoundland. To say we were a bit cramped would be an understatement especially once the rain started Lilah ended up sleeping on top of Jen and I. So after a long winter of thinking and a little building we came up with out tiny house complete with a Bulldog on the hood. The tiny house is complete with rec

The blue paint stripe has to be run across the doors and stars added to it I will get that done this week weather permitting supposed to be a rainy one though. The truck was a hit at the parade I heard a lot of "nice truck" as we went along the route I took a few pics at the beginning of the parade couldn't get any when the crowd got thick though the people were throwing so much candy into the road I ha

My cousin finally parked it do to the power divider going out of it and the frame is really really bad but I have a nice frame same wheel base for already. Out of 4 the Magnums that were in the family this is the last one. I would have posted it sooner but I've been busy on the Super Dog Dump and also been sick with the flew for about 2 weeks. I would like to find the proper Sun Visor for it like all the Magnums had new. Also this the identical twin to Tackaberrys Supe

  27. I just bought this 1980 RWL721LST. It has 51000 original miles. She was born with a ETCZB1000 V8, a 12 speed, and 44000 rears. My plans are to make it a tri axle Dump. It had a bad oil coller and 1 bad liner which I already fixed. Also there was several families of Rats living in the cab so I gutted the inside and I'm cleaning all the panels. I will keep you guys posted on my progress. Thanks, Josh

  28. Just purchased a 1964 B81SX. It is very similar to last year's project ('Mater) in that both are '64s, both have 711s and Quads, and both are SX dump trucks. It will be a while before I can get on this one, but here it is. Last pic is the truck at its new home in CT.

  30. A year and a half later from when she was purchased and with the help of family and friends, the frame has been all painted, headboard all redone, new fenders, new step box, straight pipes removed and mufflers put on and a whole host other mechanical small things fixed and she was driven for the first time since December on the road and it felt good and drove nice. You know its done when the passenger door is all re pinstriped and your daughters names went on the truck this past week!! Some before pics and finished ones.

  31. Like we know the RW had a bad experience a couple months ago. So I sen it to the Spa Of Antrim diesel. Where they gave it a good wash down and checked out what it would take to bring it back from the dead. They had a brand new short block, never in a truck. So they put together a new E9 for me. So they called and said its dyno time. A couple years ago when they did the pump work and turbo it put down 700 Hp flat to the ground. So we figured it would be a little less this time, till it breaks in. Well I was wrong. 720hp at 1830rpm to the ground. We didn't get torq. The clutch wasn't

  32. Back last winter I was contemplating buying a the RS 700 that Ranchhopper was driving here in the northern Illinois area when I started hauling gravel in '86. After much thought ,another buddy of mine told me about a truck not 1 mile from my house that was destined for a boat ride,if somebody didn't save it. So I said,"let's go take a look ". I knew the truck as it was around since the early '90's in the area and having a soft spot for the bulldog variety , I figured it was my duty to save it from a land far away . It is a 1988 R690ST. EM6-300L T2070 , and 5.73 Camelback

  33. Just fininshing up the cab,fenders and hood on the LTL I got 2 years ago. It was showing signs of rust and not so good paint prep from a restoration completed in 2004. It was keyed up pretty good as well and need some TLC. I did this one myself except for paint. Total cab off and strip to bare metal. Chroming and powder coating was done to dress her up as well. Hope its up to your Guys standards. This is what I started with, a nice clean unit and Itchy was proud of it. Driven to every show he went to. It still a work out to drive with 3 sticks and an iron lung Cummins. It will be at the sh

  39. Here’s the story. I have recently acquired this Mack B615S 1222. It was purchased from my Dad's company. They ordered it new from Mack. So technically I am the second owner. The company did heavy hauling, crane work, millwrighting, ect. This truck was used to pull a 200-ton capacity trailer. (that is not a typo 200 tons! ) The truck has some neat features I do not see often. First is the extra set of dual wheels that bolt on to the back of the truck. They are not driven but do have brakes. I do not use them b/c of the trailer I am using. The best part of the truck is the winch mount

  41. After unloading Nellie (figured every old gal needs a new name with a new home) my wife and I drug it to the edge of our driveway. It's going to be sitting for awhile with it being cold outdoors. Why not use it for one of the outdoors Christmas decorations? Over the course of the last week we've had many people slow down and a few even stop on the 40 mph road in front of our house. Part of it is the 1950 John Deere tractor lit up in the front yard along with all the other decorations. But I'd like to think it's mainly the Mack all lit up on a photo sensor from dusk-till-dawn.

  45. Not sure exactly how that country song goes about the fact that sometimes you should be thankful for unanswered prayers ......but I pray everyday not to buy another damn old Mack truck. My brother's Truck'n neighbor in PA tracked this ol girl down in Texas so I just had to make a deal. It comes with a 36" and a nice 60" Mercury too. The original V8 it is in as well. The old boy claims to be the 2nd owner and trucked for years with it. No rust either which is a real plus.

On Sunday they had a car/truck show and I entered the 1980 in the show category 59-80 stock truck so that's why I only put one in as not to compete against myself. Anyways, we ad brought the camper and so we left the show to go pack it ups and bring home and then go back to the show. We ended up running late getting back and they were starting to pack up the tables and tents and stuff. I went up to the guy I registered wi
