  1. The stock market is at a very dynamic moment, due to the global pandemic. The March/April low was a once in a decade event. I invite all members with an interest in the market to join in discussion.
  2. No worries......we aim to please. Nice truck !
  3. The cab hydraulic lift cylinder is atop the right front fender, under the muffler. Flip the lever direction and pump.

  5. UPS Moves Down Electric Truck Path with New eCascadia Heavy Duty Trucking (HDT) / August 20, 2020 UPS is not one to shy away from emerging technology, especially when it comes to lowering its carbon footprint. Recently, the package delivery and supply chain management provider dipped its toes a little deeper into the electric truck market with the acquisition of a Freightliner eCascadia battery-electric Class 8 truck. “UPS remains very committed to electrifying its fleet, and this vehicle is the first battery-electric heavy-duty class 8 truck to be deployed for testing withi
  6. FOMC* Backs Away From September Guidance Shift MarketWatch / August 20, 2020 U.S. central bankers backed off in July from an earlier readiness to set a clearer bar for raising interest rates, a step that would underscore their commitment to an extended period of ultra-loose monetary policy. “With regard to the outlook for monetary policy beyond this meeting, a number of participants noted that providing greater clarity regarding the likely path of the target range for the federal funds rate would be appropriate at some point,” according to minutes of the Federal Open Market
  7. Peterbilt Model 220EV: The Order Banks Are Open Heavy Duty Trucking (HDT) / August 28, 2020 Peterbilt announced today that the all-electric cabover Model 220EV is now available for customer orders. The Model 220EV is Peterbilt’s first electric configuration for medium-duty applications in a Class 6 or 7 vehicle. Peterbilt claims a range of up to 200 miles on a full charge, making the 220EV ideal for local pickup and delivery, as well as short regional haul operations. When using the vehicle’s DC fast-charging system, the twin battery packs can recharge in 1-2 hours.
  8. Mr. Hancock, calling fellow members (i.e. Mark) derogatory names on my BMT Investors Bulletin Board thread is unacceptable behavior.
  9. Plane ready? Trinidad or Caymans?
  10. Exactly, the early "cool power" air-to-air "300" Maxidynes whistled under a load. Conservatively rated, they were the most powerful 300's produced.
  11. MAN Truck & Bus Press Release / August 6, 2020 Meet our bus city family that will shape the future of urban transportation: the MAN Lion's City with EfficientHybrid, the MAN Lion's City G with CNG Drive, and the fully electric MAN Lion's City E. From now on, you have the perfect solution for every requirement. .
  12. The BMT Investors Circle has increased the chances of a March-like market drop over the next 60 days to over fifty percent. Thus, we are recommending that members remain on the sidelines with cash at this juncture, aside from select opportunities.
  13. Yes, they are. It's a problem. Economic might is a country's most critical power. China has had recent flare-ups, major ones in Beijing and northeast China, but they're on top of it.
  14. Greenspan Says U.S. Virus Failure Threatens Recovery, Aids China Rich Miller, Bloomberg / August 17, 2020 The failure of the U.S. to handle the coronavirus pandemic risks derailing the economic recovery and puts the country at a competitive disadvantage in its long-run battle with China for global hegemony, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan said. In an article written for Advisors Capital Management and published on Monday, Greenspan said that the U.S. has at times looked like it “has lost its way,” while China has enjoyed continued success in expanding its econo
  15. Note the off-white Mack Western era steering wheel. Also note the one-piece grille panel (Macungie-built Value-Liners had a 3-piece design). Front turn signal lamps are incorrect.
  16. Many know the B-29, but few have heard of the second generation B-50. Note the 700-gallon (2,650-litre) external under-wing fuel tanks. Powered by 28-cylinder 3,500 horsepower Pratt & Whitney R-4360 Wasp Major engines, 79 B-50A's were built, 45 B-50B's and 222 B-50D's. Top speed was 380-385 mph, versus the B-29's 358 mph.
  17. This video is available in 16 languages. Vlad......
  18. I still look forward to learning why the USPS is purchasing a construction truck for use as a tractor, i.e. the HV (revised Workstar) instead of the more appropriate RH regional haul tractor (revised Transtar). The only obvious reason is the RH is only available with the 12.4-litre A26 engine (MAN D26), while the 8500/8600 Transtar replaced by the RH was available with the lower priced but discontinued proprietary 9.3-litre HT570. The HV is available with both the Cummins 6.7ISB and 8.9ISL. There's simply no excuse for the RH not to be available with the ISL. .
  19. Volvo "NH" conventionals (bonnetted) and "FH" COE's
