  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

  3. So a little bird just told me that Other Dog has retired. The red KW has been cleaned out, vacuumed, washed and returned to FL Moore and the keys handed in. (Were the second logbooks burned...???) I just wanted to say Congratulations to one of the biggest assh......I mean one of my best and closest friends on his retirement. Please enjoy a safe, healthy and happy life with Zina from Florida now from Virginia. You certainly deserve every good fortune that is hopefully headed your way. Thank you for being a good friend- we do not get to see each other often but I consider you family and if

  4. My single axle donor truck is an H67LT so it's got aluminum suspension brackets and air tanks. I cleaned the tanks thoroughly (inside and out) and pressure tested them. I used a jitterbug with 320 paper and then wet sanded with 600, 800, and 1000; then polished with Mothers. They're still scarred from decades of hanging under a truck but I like them anyway. I'm not going for a showroom new look, I like a truck that has some character to it.

  5. I always thought it would be cool to own a C-model and it happened today. A friend of mine decided to sell his dad's old truck. They used it to haul grain to Duluth, MN back in the day, then it was converted into a motorhome. It now has a 237 with a triplex. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it, but the price was right.

  8. I just wanted to thank everyone on this site that helped me along the way. And also show off my new playtoy. I found this truck about 4 months ago. It ran real well and had a real solid cab. It needed all of the front body pieces except the grill shell. I think the PO sent them out to be sandblasted and never got them back. I spent some time doing bodywork which I hate doing and probably could've done a better job but I wanted a driver. Something I dont have to be worried about parking at a show. And something my kids can climb in and not worry about a scratch. I was able to take it for a ride

  10. Evening Folks, I am happy to report the B arrived safely this morning, and with a couple fresh batteries, fired right up with no issues. It is a 237 Mack w/jakes, and looks to be a really low time engine, I drove it off the trailer and the last mile home with no problem. Pic of it sitting in the driveway next to my F250 service truck.

  13. We- meaning me, Zina from Florida, and Ollie from Florida- went to the Tri-State ATHS Show in Clearbrook, Va. today. Ollie was thrilled- I can't resize the pictures with my phone, so they might be too big. I saw a V8 Mack there. Nice B model- I thought this was a great paint job, but it's actually a wrap. I saw a few dignitaries too. Like farmer52 Fuzzy Buzzard Underdog, talking to Ollie. Here's a fine looking Dodge, and the nicest D860 GMC I've ever seen, this restoration is just fantastic.

  15. I've known this dog for more than two decades. He travels the same roads I do but I have only talked to Larry one time in all these years. I've never had a camera ready when I see it and usually it's when we're going opposite directions on a two lane someplace but via a mutual driving friend I finally have picture of this daily working Superliner.

  16. Details!! Lots of small things happening, brackets going back on, holes being refilled and progress!! Spent $130 on hardware, yesterday, nothing bigger than a handful of 5/16 bolts. Cowl vent doors are adjusted and finished. Chrome shop called, my lot should be back in about 8-10 weeks. So, finishing the doors will be a while. I have a tentative date around the beginning of April at an upholsterer to cut, sew and install the headliner and back wall. He did sew me up 22’ of matching windlace to go around the inside door jambs.

  17. Well I retired from trucking and couldn't be happier. The whole state of the union sickens me nowadays. Got a job in a gold mine running equipment above ground and when on overtime my coffee mug makes me the same money $240,000 dump trucks make around here, LOL Anyway, been loading these. There is a Superliner and two CL Elites still working in here. All E9 V8's and I assume 65,000 Mack rears. The Superliner is on Camelback and the CL is on solid trunion. They also have Stars with big rears and solid walking beams and one with planetary rears. The other reason I q

  19. That same day we catched the final destination, met the owner and I finally saw the aim of the trip myself. Can't say I was really excited but the truck more looked alive than dead. The next day we installed the rear crank seal housing since the owner removed it planning to change the seal but didn't, flywheel, clutch set and the tranny. I brang a chain winch along the other things but the point to attach it was the body's front board which was not a perfect location to hang the tranny up. As a follow we put plenty of labour getting it in place. Having experience of installing clutch on my R-m

  20. I haven't posted on here in a while. I've been fortunate to see a lot of work come through and have stayed busy. After getting the new tie rod ends (required putting the knuckles on a CNC and hogging out the taper about 1/16") the 56 B-42 is running strong! Here are a couple of pictures of it rigged up. It's a bit hard to see but the second picture is a couple of 1800lb white jade foo dogs I transported to a local botanical garden.

  22. Ya'll - I have paint! Doors are done. Goal is to have the cab done by the end of this weekend. I'm one happy girl - I think the truck is, too! The rest of the truck will be this color with a white cab roof (down to the natural seam). My seat upholstery should make sense now. Anybody craving a can of Dr. Pepper with me? 🤩

  23. Bob lived in California and was a lifelong environmentalist and was defeated in the House of Representatives election. He was sick of the world; of Covid-19, Brexit, Russian belligerence, global warming, racial tensions, and the rest of the disturbing stories that occupy media headlines. Bob drove his car into his garage and then sealed every doorway and window as best he could. He got back into his car and wound down all the windows, selected his favorite radio station, started the car and revved it to a slow idle. Four days later, a worried neighbor peered through his garage window and sa

  28. As i said many times in the past there're just a few Mack trucks in Russia and only a finger count of old ones so I keep the track on the most of them. A few years back a friend of mine sent me a picture from the net with orange Cruiseliner with Russian plates. Those indicated registration of the city of Ekaterinburg which is a kind of a capital of the Ural mountains region. A bit later another friend met the owner on some local truck forum and supplied me with contact info. I made a phone call, learned the specifications and the chassis # and was also told that the truck was selling. But the

  34. Hurtling towards completion!! Passenger door is done, all stainless hardware really makes the panel pop. A temporary carpet to protect the floor. All the glass is in. Driver’s door to finish and still haven’t received the glove box liner, so the dash is still out. I should have this done by my deadline. It’s really looking good and boy is it getting heavy with almost everything back in it.

  35. Just got these trinkets. I'm told the smaller dog is from the 1940s it's a early concept of the bulldog mascot. The other was introduced in the 70s they were apparently given to Mack executives as paperweights. The truck is possibly pewter it's heavy and well detailed it's also supposed to be only given to Mack executives. Anybody know anything about these I'd be happy to hear from you.

Through the years, we have asked the community if they wanted Off Topic discussions to include politics and other heated topics and YES always rang out the loudest...and that is fine, but when these discussions turn into shouting matches, name calling and disrespect to the Moderators...we will be forced to start regulating these discussions and moderating them heavily! Members that can't or won't debate in a civil manner, will be warned and banned as needed!!

  42. The end of that part of the story we started backing home on the next day and the loaded trailer went to his company yard with a plan to hit the road in a couple of days. I took another road which worth pointing out since I drove no less than 1500km of nealy empty 2 lane highway with about no passes and light overspeeding. Would do it really nasty if drive a faster car but not this time. Telling further the trailer arrived to my place yesterday and we offloaded the Mack successfully. But I will share that part of the story the other day. Too much to type (and read?) at once, especially by lang

  43. The place I found to stay overnight was a small hotel right near the river by the name of Kama. KamAZ truck plant was named to it but the actual plant's location was in a few hundred km lower down the river's draft. Worth to admitt the water was cold and the dinner was excellent and cheap. Further road represented a section of a 6 lane highway starting from the city of Perm' which in 30 km turned out into a common 2 lane road with avarage traffic. Met that yellow with red IH somewhere overthere. Than further catched a couple of sections of road repairs where one of the two lanes was closed and

  46. Again it is important to have facts. You are only 50% correct. The republican Trump administration IS in power. However they are the least bureaucratic administration since Reagan or before. Hence the fact that the man is hellbent on the deregulation of businesses. If he were bureaucratic than he would be pressing for the typical oppressive regulation that stifled businesses for the 8 years that Obama was in office. Why is it that during Obama's tenure, that the economy failed to reach 3% GDP growth during any year of his administration? You realize that no President has had that pro
