  1. I like the saying on the back of the cab of your post.......real trucks don't have spark plugs!
  2. I have seen some cars but this is the first truck and a Mack at that. I have no idea what engine that is? A friend sent me the pics and I assume he got them off the internet?
  3. My wife and I are making plans to be over in 2015 too. Tony's Titan is my ride to Alice Springs!!!!.......... by that time I should have plenty of left hand stick time in the Valueliner!! But I could settle for just about any one of the trucks he has in his collection.
  4. Amen..............took a group of my buddies from the west coast there a few years ago. sittin at the pizza joint by the park on a Thursday night drink'n good California wine we brought with our pizza watch trucks pull into the park grounds...............damn that was some good times.......as good as it gets!
  5. The transfer of heat is the limiting item for more horsepower with the E9. The only reason the CL got passed was that he was too busy playing with the damn video and he missed a gear!
  6. Has the F model look and a lot bigger V8 symbol!
  7. in Aussie they called them .............Flintstones!
  8. Looks like a Peterbilt to me.............hehehehe so whateth Volvo doesth so doesth Paccar.
  9. How about the old Fat Harvey's on I-5 in Canyonville, OR. Big sign along the freeway said...."Don't pass Fat's gas"! You had to of eat'n there to understand that one! My old man and I rolled in there late one night and there was a new bathroom built off the fuel island. We both walked in and stared at the rain gutter along a 4ft high block wall with a lean to shed roof over it. My Dad looked at me and said this place put trucks stops back 5o yrs.
  10. Appears to be the first Mack Leavitt's drove. Friend sent this pic to me today as he must be at the logging show in Eugene, Oregon. Leavitt's hauls up and down the west coast but no modern Macks in the fleet. They haul a lot of over length poles for the power companies. I never knew this truck existed either. Just shows you that a lot of old Macks are in hiding.
  11. Out west a famous one was the Pantyhose Junction also known as Aladero in Dunnigan, CA. Had to be where the words from the old Butt Naked song came from.........We've got those 300lb waitresses stuffed in bikinis hungry for love...
  12. John Cheeseman Fort Recovery, Ohio.................now Zumstein??
  13. I have 4 B755's and out west they were quite popular however 3 of the 4 now have in line cummins in them as that was the engine of choice for loggers after the V8's gave up. I have heard stories of those that loved them and those that hated them. The late Bob Brown told a story when he was the service manager for Mack in the NW a fleet of 864's were sold to a company in Alaska and he said it was a disaster as he considered it to be an experimental engine especially when turbo'd. His opinion was this experience hurt Mack sales in Alaska ever since.
  14. I believe the White history files went to the ATHS library as a donation from Volvo?
  15. How about Bailey's in New Castle, PA? they were also a White dealer. I went by there a few years ago and all closed up. I could not believe how small the garage doors were to the shop. No one ran tall stacks back then.
  16. There is no Oxygen in the exhaust of a diesel and the spark plug with propane wont work. was told I would have to add O2 to the mix or basically an acetylene torch..........too dangerous for me. My LT will get an orange cone at night with a decent load on it. My retarder on the Pete just might not be enough to do it although it sure works the engine.
  17. There was also another prototype that ran Canada and I believe it had the big bore 6 cylinder Mack diesel in it? The engine is now in the museum at the customer center.
  18. I have been playing with fuel mixtures to get fire/orange glow out the stack of a two six bits cummins I have on a retarder. Anyone with an idea that would help on this? I just can't seem to lug it down with enough power to produce the flame. I can do it on my LT with same type engine pulling a load. If anyone has seen Tally's display at shows he puts out a big flame but wont tell me the secret!
  19. I have the lockers on our Pinnacle and it makes all the difference!
