    The piece of crap that was in the White House last said you would never seen unemployment down where it is today, also said that those manufacturing jobs were gone for EVER, EVER he said, really what happened, we have a President that grabs a little Volvo, better than grabbing a Weiner, calls out Rocket Man, tries to find out who really screwed up the election (Clinton) brings back oil, has really lowered unemployment, is really trying to fix the southern border problem (less warren/sanders voters) if the guy pooped out gold bricks and cured cancer the America hating left would still find something to impeach him, how about we impeach THEM, how about we declare the Democrat party a Terrorist group, they really hate America and really try to harm us, all the left talks about is about everyone else in the world and what they think, who cares what they(any other country ) thinks, how about we the working people of this country think, do you live by what others think or what is right for you ??? Impeach the Democrats and declare the them Terrorists.(not the NRA).

    This was probably my favorite truck at the Tri State ATHS Show in Winchester last weekend. I've always liked the D-860 GMC's, ever since I was a wee lad, probably because one used to pass by my house several times a week when I was a kid. You could hear that 6-71 coming long before it ever got there, so we always had time to run to the front yard to watch it go by. I really think that truck was the reason I always wanted to drive a truck. Now, after 41 years, the thrill is gone, but... I was thinking that this truck might have been the one Fred Craig had, but I do not know. This was Fred Craig's at Winchester in 2005 or 2006.

    The movie studio is irrelevant.... I own the rights to the image and likeness and shared them equally with those that purchased the two surviving trucks. Don’t get me wrong....I didn’t expect a Mack-centric forum to love a Western Star. The exercise wasn’t just about copying a modern Rubber Duck.....it was about honoring what that character was based in and what the independent of that era was. As others have pointed out and this die-hard Mack fan found out....Mack corporate is not in the game anymore. For that matter, at least in my region, Peterbilt isn’t either. Unless you’re buying trucks a dozen at a time or buying some stock spec unit they ordered and have had sitting, they don’t have time for you. As someone who was fascinated by Mack and loyal to them despite all sorts of horrific experiences with products (ASET ring a bell with anyone?) for over 40 years, it was no easy choice to go with another manufacturer, but from an experiential level, it was painfully obvious who was interested and who wasn’t. Whatever spirit used to exist at Mack (and Peterbilt for that matter) that allowed them to pursue independents and small 2 to 5 truck fleets is dead and gone. Their product offerings aren’t geared for the small guy. I really hope they wake up and realize what’s been done to their iconic brand. In the end, I’m delighted to show this new truck and explain why it is the brand it is. The people at these shows aren’t the bean counters at a big company, they are the men and women that drive the truck, change the oil, swap out the brakes, grease the chassis, troubleshoot at 2AM on a freeway off ramp and try to rest in a truck stop parking lot next to a SWIFT reefer running wide open. These people work hard, start small and build on the successes achieved by being able to work on their own equipment without needing a laptop to plug in. What Mack is telling them is that they don’t add up to enough of a percentage market share to pursue. It’s a business decision and I get it. So was mine.

    I saw this fellow wearing this Watt's T shirt so I asked him who he was and he said "Fuzzy Buzzard". Super nice guy, it was nice to meet him. Here's Fuzzy Buzzard leaving in a cloud of smoke- And one of the nicest looking Superliners i've seen- And all the rest of the pictures are here- the yellow GMC D860 was outstanding! https://www.flickr.com/photos/28526133@N04/albums/72157711144761641

    Isn't it funny under Obama we could spend bunches of money to but gas for our cars and trucks and it was all imported oil, but 3 years under Trump we produce so much of our own oil that we are now having layoffs in the oil field for having to much oil ??? just one more example of the treason Obama committed against the American people that gets covered up, Trump wants to investigate corruption in Ukraine and the Obama team (Liberal Democrats) want him gone ??? and if you think that Obama did not sell out American coal for the benefit of third world nations your a moron, he screwed us to help his baboon farmer nations have cheap energy while we got stuffed with gas, and NO it was NOT about clean air it was about helping other nations at the expense of the American tax payer. Warren/Sander will bankrupt this nation and that is the plan, to make us no better than any other nation. Our new national slogan will be, America just another shit hole.

    Hello all! https://photos.app.goo.gl/sj398Gv2eRmsuUvy7 Seen this wrecker sitting in the late 80s. Just happened to see it recently and called. The owner and I have no idea on price. What do you all think! The sheet metal is in ok shape. The floor board on passenger side is rotted. Engine looks good. Don't know if it turns over. Wrecker body is hidden by the brush. The business end looks hefty. Unable to see more of the body. What else should I look for? Thanks! Mitch good

    It's a good little show, no doubt! It used to be a big show, until I went to Macungie one time. Zina from Florida flew up to go too- on a plane.

    I love this stuff, true examples- The late Gene Dixon, owner of Kyanite Mining Corporation, once tried to check in to a fancy motel in the Norfolk/ Va. Beach. They refused him a room because he looked liked regular folks, and he had been drinking, as the story goes. He bought the motel and fired everybody. Johnny was in the Southern Belle Truckstop in Berkeley Springs one night, got to talking with a couple of other drivers in there. When they left and went outside, one of the others said "what are you driving?" He pointed to an F model with a load of green lumber and said "that Mack". They said "would you mind if we pulled out first, so you won't hold us up- we've gotta go!" "No problem, go right ahead". They were both driving "large cars". He pulled out behind them, and then he proceeded to blow their doors off going up Town Hill Mountain with that V12 F model. Wayne stopped by the IH dealer in Greensboro, N.C. one time. He wanted to buy a new truck, but he was in his work clothes too. The salesman wouldn't give him the time of day, not realizing that Wayne could build a truck out of parts in his junk drawer. He bought a new truck, paid cash for it.

    We have both tracks around here. Magnolia and Mount Vernon are the only 1/8 miles tracks, all the rest can run 1/4 mile. Since most of the local IHRA bracket points stuff is 1/8 mile, DW42 runs most of their programs 1/8 mile. I can remember about 13 odd yrs ago the locals all bitched about only running 1/8. Then like the next year, suddenly they all were raving about it. Fuel cost, maintenance, etc all were cheaper so they suddenly think 1/8 mile is where its at. I don't care, I just want to race.

    Heavy Duty Trucking (HDT) / October 9, 2019 UPS will purchase more than 6,000 natural gas-powered trucks beginning in 2020 and running through 2022. This three-year commitment represents a $450 million investment in expanding the company’s alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicle fleet as well as supporting infrastructure. Roughly 25% of vehicles purchased by UPS in 2020 will run on alternative fuels, said Juan Perez, chief information and engineering officer, UPS. The new vehicles will be equipped with compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel systems provided under an exclusive agreement with Agility Fuel Solutions, a provider of clean fuel solutions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles. As of October 2019, UPS has agreed to purchase 230 million-gallon equivalents of RNG over the next seven years, making the company the largest consumer of RNG in the transportation industry. Vehicles equipped with CNG fuel systems can interchangeably use RNG and conventional natural gas. Since 2016, Agility Fuel Solutions has provided natural gas fuel storage and delivery systems to more than 1,700 UPS trucks. Over the past decade, UPS has invested more than $1 billion in alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles and fueling stations to help meet its target of reducing absolute greenhouse gas emissions by 12% across its global ground operations by 2025. UPS has continued its relationship with TruStar Energy to design, manufacture and install five new CNG fueling stations in Lathrop, Visalia and Moreno Valley, Calif., Houston, Texas, and Cleveland, Ohio. UPS will deploy the new CNG vehicles on routes to utilize the new CNG stations as well as adding to existing natural gas fleets in other UPS locations. By the end of 2019, UPS will be operating 61 natural gas fueling stations strategically located across the U.S., and outside the U.S. in Vancouver, Canada, and Tamworth, United Kingdom.

    The 285 with the tip turbine/after cooler will fit under the hood. The air plumbing may need work depending on what you have. Do you have air from the air cleaner running through the cab or is it direct from the air cleaner through the side of the hood? No need in having the air restricted. Weight is at least 2000 lbs depending on how dressed it is.

    Tommy, enjoyed meeting you and "the Red Head". Always meet the finest people at truck shows. The pictures were OUTSTANDING! Did you buy the optional water cooled shutter on that Kodak? Had a good ride back to the poor country EXCEPT oil pan cracked riding thru MD. Made heck of mess but no damage done. Had lost bout 1/2 gallon oil when I found it. Found sheet screw in tool box, cut rubber washer out of toilet plunger in truck stop and we were back to riding. Keep the pictures coming - really enjoy!!

    If they are smart enough to accept it on Wednesday I'll let you know what the deal is. My original plan for the housing the towns concern was their EMT unit, they were happy when I offered the a 2 year old unit, the two women squashed that, If terms are accepted they will still get a new unit, cost them a dinner. that was my wife's wishes. My kids and wives were counting their inheritance up after my wife died, told them I don't plan on having a penny left when I go so don't get greedy. Part of my property was a junk yard from the 1920's to about 1953 or 54. When we first bought that section in 1980 my wife thought I was nuts. What I did twice a year was load a trailer up with stuff from the sheds and take it to Carlisle and Fall Hersey. Trim, headlights, tail lights, radios, hub caps. Than moved on to carbs, fuel pumps, lever shocks and finally sheet metal and glass. Probably 5 or 6 tons at a shot. I sold any single piece for $10 each and sheet metal and glass for $50 each.Also took a big pallet with those little packs of clips, electrical connectors, nut and bolts, sold all you could hold in one hand for $2.00. Always came home with it all sold and added to next years sales by loading up a lot of a old parts the some sellers were to lazy to bring home. Kept a few of the 40's and 50's Fords and Chevy cars cause I like them. Selling all the old parts paid for the next big chunk of property we bought in 1987. We ended up with nine lots. One more giant hunk to go. My friend "next door" is selling me his entire farm in a year or so when they move to Louisiana.

    Go to a yard near you, snap tons of photos of a set forward axle truck, and note every difference you see, make your list off that. Make sure you take a peak at the oil pan to make sure yours doesn't have the sump in the front whereas a set forward might have it in the back.
