    The storied knowledge on this site is amazing
  6. No Bourbon and beefsteak must have been after my times I was there Christmas 1969 and Oct 1970. But I suddenly remembered a couple of teen age fight bars ,The Dialtone Steak house (where you used a phone to call in your order I don't think they sold a steak after the first week)The two boweling allies were also teenage fight clubs.and because it was a college town there were floating dance /booze parties that would set up where ever they could rent a space .At one time Danbury Ct had more bars than any other city it's size in Ct
  7. you boys down under may not know of these places but they were the in places in Sydney in the late 1960's ,assoc motor club (had big bar slot machines and resturant ) Used to go in earlyplay the slots until we had enough extra money to pay for supper .Whiskey ago go, kind of a dive with plenty of hookers competing,same for the Cheetah .then there was The Texas Tavern up on the cross,they were not so much hookers as hustlers .getting a kickback on you food and drink sales then there was the Mandarin club another gambling place.Best time I had was Christmas eve at a Greek social club. good food but the english girl I was with would only eat english food .There is a circluar hotel on King street and the other side of the street was one strip club after another ,the hustlers really worked to get you in there

    Craigslist Scan:

    Are the springs on this truck upside down? https://northmiss.craigslist.org/cto/d/model-mack/6554401307.html
  14. I was thinking the same thing I also looks like it has a long hood,wonder what motor was under it.Could the trailer be an early Rodgers ,I read in an add that there trailer were built so that any beam could carry the full tonnage rating of the trailer so if it was a 30 ton trailer each beam was 30 ton rated.They used to side load in those days
  15. now that last truck is interesting!
