  5. Michigan craigslist southwest listing 1960 B 61 heavy specs no connection looks good in photos
  6. check light bulb for crossed filament on turn signal
  7. Passed a superliner hood in a overgrown yard the other day. No one home.Any value for resale? At least would look good hanging on wall in garage.

    The Bird

    Mark was agreat guy to watch pitch. they called him The Bird after Big Bird on Sesame Street because of his antics on the mound.Too bad his career ended so soon.
  10. Is there any interest in these engines? Are they getting hard to find? Are new parts available?
  11. I believe they sold out or reorganized in the late 80's or early 90's ? Yes they are now Quality Carriers ,hq is now Fla. instead of Pa.When I worked for them in the 70's and80's they had over 2500 tractors and 4000 trailers if my memory is correct. Probably 90 % Mack afew frtliners afew GMC Astro's and an ocasional White.
  12. Ok guys Ihave been away from the trucking industry for about 25 yrs. We had a pretty good size fleet of Cruiseliners at Leaman tank lines when I was there.Where did they all go?Ours all had alum. frames and cabs if I remember .Airride cabs too .
