  2. Last LTL?

    What is the story on the BM you have? any pics?
  3. I like the color scheme and it is a close combo to the original Tremoss Green and Caribbean Orange that was standard on the Jr. I did not know of a color card at the time I restored my Jr in 1994 although I had literature naming the colors. So I went with Mack green and chrome. I have since learned of the Mack Museum and was able to get a color card from them. some years back a guy in NJ restored a jr back to the original colors and it was sharp making me think about redoing my truck to those colors. The picture is a Jr I believe sold in PA some years back with original color patina left on it.

  11. update here is an email I got from Nick Hewitt Oh, and as far as a new Mack goes I received a visit from the new salesmen from Tec Equipment Tim Martin. I told him I had been in one and really liked it but a factory build weight of 18,900 was a bit much. The T680's I have came in at 17,200 and the new ones I just specked out with Paul have a build weight of 16,900. I gave Tim the Kenworth spec sheet and told him if he could get within 200 lbs of the Kenworth I would try a new Anthem. I hope he does. I will make it my personal truck! That was a week ago. As of this writing I have not heard from him. Come on Mack................step up and make it happen!!!
  12. last year an employee sat next to a man on a plane out of Medford, OR. In the conversation he learned that the man.......named Nick owned a trucking business based in Medford. My guy Walt told him about my passion for Mack and the collection of trucks I had and to his surprise Nick told him that his last name was Hewitt and that his grandfather sold his company to Mack. Well needless to say Nick and I met up and he brought a stack of Hewitt Motor papers with him including a copy of the stock transfer when Mack bought the company. He received all of this during a visit to Mack several years ago. He said they treated him like he was royalty. Now you got to ask how could that be his grandfather after all of these years? He told me his father was in his early 60's when he was born. He also had a lot of history about a very large estate that the Hewitt family owned in New Jersey. He started his driving career for an outfit out of Virginia. I will get the company name and update. He knew nothing about us nuts that restore old trucks and he quickly became a fan and has gone to a couple shows with me. He loves mixing the sticks as he started out in an F model with a tri plex..............sadly he has a fleet of KW's.
  13. I remember that cover like it was yesterday...........thanks for sharing brings back a great memory.
