  1. I saw your R but didn't see the Superliner. R looks great, BTW.
  2. Can it be? I've run through all the pics posted from Macungie and didn't see a single Hayward Mack. There must have been at least one there....
  3. Looks to me to be a 73 that may have an older hood and breather. I believe the 6-speed wasn't available until '73 (I could be wrong) and of course it has the plus 3 cab, also not available until 73. The Bostrom Levelair II was quite the seat in its day. It rode like a marshmallow until you bottomed out and then the shock would kick in. You pressed the little pedal on the front of it to kick the shock back out. That truck looks pretty rough to me, but it's clear that you like it, so why not?
  4. Any Mack of the vintage I ever used came from the factory with them pointing down. However, I'd say you can have them any old way you want. 🙂
  5. I'm an old geyser who's been in trucking all my life and I'd never heard of a cable pull dump. Very interesting.
  6. That's still one of my favorite interiors ever. Great design, love the big wheel, just looks so right.
  7. As soon as I saw the title of the post I knew what truck it would be. Saw it just last week. One of my favorites. Unfortunately, he has a B model wrecker that's been sitting outside for years, rotting. He won't part with it.
  8. I would guess not. One of them doesn't shift, so he keeps them in high range all the time. Hobby dump truck. Although he has hauled a load or two of gravel, it has no power steering or front brakes. Old school isn't always better.
  9. A friend of mine won that B61 last year. It's pretty nice--Maxidyne, quadbox, 3 spd rears (!)--and he'll probably be selling it in the spring.
  10. With a straight pipe, no less. Nothing sounds better than a 300 Maxidyne with a straight pipe--not loud, either.
  11. It's breath of fresh air to hear someone get excited about something besides a Paccar, which to me are like Harleys....same ol', same ol', no matter how much they're gussied up. That is a great looking bulldog, and the 18 speed is an added plus. As a company driver, you gotta love it when something like that happens. I know just exactly how you feel. Enjoy!!!
  12. No, I was talking about a ten wheeler with 15 tons on board. You can't haul 25 on that type of truck around here.
  13. I occasionally drive a tandem axle dump with a C10 Cat @370 hp, 8LL. I think it's a perfect setup. I just don't get why people think they need 500 + hp in a dump truck.
  14. Normally I'd always prefer Mack power in a Mack over GM, but a 12V71 of that era is in a class by itself.
