  1. I believe this is owned by Al Tocci in OK. If you check his Facebook page, there is a video of a huge Autocar tractor running in his garage, and you can catch enough of a glimpse of the truck next to it to be pretty sure that it's this rig. The video is dated in 2015, so if he doesn't still have it, he did up until that point....
  2. Stopped to catch a pic of a handful of dogs that I pass on the way to work every day in Westerly. Nice looking trucks.....
  3. Ooohh, those are nice! I assume it's probably hard to find one of those in roadworthy condition.....
  4. Ahhh...... I thought I had seen it somewhere before. Didn't think that it might've been HERE, lol. There are also a few videos of it posted on youtube. Here's one, and it will lead you to the rest: Still disappointed that it'll be going somewhere other than my driveway.
  5. Would LOVE to get my hands on this, but within a couple hours of putting my bid in, it shot past what I could pony up for it. Pretty close to me, too. Hope someone on here gets it and can store it properly and get it cleaned up. It's an absolute beauty!
  6. That came out great!!
  7. I know that eventually I'm going to run across something that I probably shouldn't buy, and buy it (am half-heartedly looking for a single axle dump truck with a Diesel), but I use it mostly to peruse the country a couple times a week to see what turns up for B-models that I can add to the B-Model registry..... But it's certainly tempting to see all the nice older rigs that are out there, and if I did have a little more in my bank account, it might not last long! It's probably also a good thing that I don't have a lot of flat land suitable for storing old trucks, or then I'd REALLY be in trouble!
  8. Ahhh, so it WAS pretty limited. So probably won't be east to find one at a reasonable price, if at all....
  9. I use Search Tempest. It can be a bit temperamental sometimes, but it's the one I like best.....
  10. Are the Cs fairly rare? I've only just seen pics of them. I like them, and if I could find a driver for a reasonable price, I'd certainly consider scooping one up....
  11. I agree with James. I know that artwork, like restored trucks, can be hard to recover for all the time put into them, but this is nice work, and I think that you could charge something for them to at least cover some of the time that you put into them..... Mike
  12. Wow - that's an incredible combination, and obviously in fantastic condition!! Do you have a plan for it?
  13. That's a beauty!!
  14. Westerly is in Southern RI, about an hour south of 146. I'm thinking it probably came south, so it might have passed by that area on its way down. It was headed south on Rt 3, so it likely got off 95 in Hopkinton and, if that's the case, there'd really be no other place for it to be going except Westerly. West of that is CT, and there would be more direct ways to get there other than coming through Hopkinton/Westerly. So, unless they were horribly lost, I'm assuming that it came South down 95 (if they were going north, then it WOULD have made sense to come in via CT), got off at Exit 1 in RI, and that its terminus would be in the Westerly area..... I'll be keeping an eye out for it as the weather gets better (IF it ever gets better!) And most people who know me know that I'm a B-model nut, so if it's here, someone will mention it to me eventually. I looked up Matthews and Sons, and couldn't find anything in PA. He might have mis-read it, but he's pretty good at spotting old iron and noting any useful info about it. He also said he thought the hauler was Levine, or Levin, but he wasn't quite as sure about that, and a search of that name from PA to New England didn't really turn up anything either.
  15. A friend who knows of my Mack illness just called to tell me he saw an Aqua colored B-model tractor being hauled on a flatbed into Westerly, RI from a direction that would indicate it had come off Rt 95 and would be being delivered somewhere in the Westerly area. Says it was an Aqua color, similar to the B-model interior color, and thinks it said "Matthews and Sons, Pittsburgh, PA" for lettering. Looked like a museum quality restoration. Anyone here know what that might be and who snagged it? Mike
