  9. Kens BIG Mack RD688SX, Built the day he was born. This truck according to the dash plate, "Custom Built for Robert Pondish and Sons" August 1987. Ken Bought this truck from MR. Pondish, Mt. Holly NJ 2 summers ago and uses it for his big jobs as long as it ain't raining or salt on the roads. Its shown w/ his talbert 50 ton trailer. It just turned 150,000 miles original from new going to the Penfield Show. Ken says some of it is still under warranty. Ken was born on Aug.11'87 and the truck was built in Aug'87 so they share birthdays. Note it still has original muffler, ken says when the brackets do let loose he's going to put a straight pipe on it, Damn youngsters making noise all the time.
