  1. B-42. Your response is awesome! I think you are right.. Grandma always knows best!!
  2. Thanks Bob!!! We are on the hunt to restore another Mack! Should be fun!
  3. July 14th bring a Mack truck Paul! We are having an old fashioned barn dance!
  4. Thank you, we are pretty excited.. Robert says he finally found a “mule for his wagon” ha!!
  5. We have been off of the site for a few months cleaning shops to start another project... I have to stop and thank the good Lord today... Old Gus #9 carried my grandparents when they first got married and will get to now carry Robert and I as we start our new journey as a married couple... folks.. I found my best friend. Robert and I met on July 14th of 2016... and we will be married on July 14th of 2018... and it just so happens to fall on the same Saturday that we met... Robert and I work on a lot of old trucks but old Gus has our hearts.. I am working on a book called Old Iron... because I can’t explain what these old trucks do to you, but they do capture your heart and your WALLET... the restoration journey is a hard one but so very worth it in the end.. As I stand in the shop staring at that big old green Mack... I think “ oh how I wish my great grandpa and my grandpa could be here to see this.” Thanks! Robert told me the Mack cannot be inside the church that day... damn.. ha!!!
  6. We cut the flaps because I had the same fear.. I cut them about three inches up and added chrome tips. It's all we could find as our infamous troopers said I had to have both.. funny I see a lot of bobtails and no rear fenders... is this common?
  7. I agree, they will stay black.. pretty easy to install and only had to drill two holes instead of four! Mud flaps are on as well! Car show on Saturday and then we are off to Drake Threshing show on Sunday. Fun time of year!
  8. Boy, The summer is flying by and we are getting ready for car and truck shows and threshing shows here in ND! Robert and I have started a tradition...we drive our regular vehicles to work Monday through Friday, and on the weekends, it is classic vehicles or tractors only! There is something great about getting up early on a Saturday and Sunday morning, the air is crisp, the sun is shining, and my a**hole of a Rooster is crowing away...and you open the garage door...There she sits...waiting patiently to roll on out to breakfast with the family at the Four Seasons Diner. The doors squeak as you open them using 71 year-old door parts...pump the brakes three times (Vacuum Brake Booster), and push the floor start...the hum and whistle of a little diesel motor. As we roll on to breakfast, people wave and give the thumbs up, and many are patient as we reach her top speed of 45mph...some are not so patient (younger generations), but give them time in life and they will learn to slow down. Sunday morning the 1960 Chevy comes out for breakfast, and for Church on Saturday night we take his grandpa's 48 Chevy car. The old Mack is getting ready for her first gooseneck hauling trip on September 9th (Drake Threshing Show), where the old truck is going to haul my 1928 Twin Cities 17-28 tractor, and our FFA Restored 1939 Allis Chalmers B, with 1 Row Cultivator and possibly a little 1948 Case SC (That I just finished for a Vietnam Veteran). This is my favorite time of year and I cannot wait to get rolling! Here's to a great start to fall! Ms. Tracy D. Many have asked me to start my business of tractor and old truck painting, so it is in the early stages of development, but here is the link: truckingwithtracy.com
  9. BillyT: it will have the 48 case black trim.. should be ready for assembly this weekend!! My Vietnam veteran is going to be quite happy!
  10. Indeed.. these poor kids grow up confused, they get bullied and then end up in our prison system when they finally snap... then we pay for them for the rest of their confused lives... didn't the Roman Empire fall because of stuff like this? History repeating itself. Or like with other fads.. do we sit back and simply let them battle with themselves? i don't care what people are or they are not as long as they support my beliefs as well, or not support my beliefs but leave me the heck alone...that's what a community is supposed to be...but that's not what's happening at all. I'm pretty neutral most of the time but some folks are bringing out the best in me.. im working on starting my own restoration business because I can't take it anymore.. even if I say "I respect you as a person.. please also respect me." I'm shunned. I'm also quite tired of non working confused cry babies who think they are entitled to govt assistance.. health care.. govt paid sex changes.. who do they think pays for all that? It's the single dad working two or three jobs.. it's the truck drivers hauling goods across the country.. it's the waitress working 12 to 16 hours at a small diner.. it's military folks.. police.. electricians.. mechanics..contractors..nurses..doctors.. all paid for off the backs of working folks.. no matter the race.. gender.. culture.. we don't work.. they don't get their govt check.. hey there's a new concept! I quit.. lol! I vote that I as a tax payer should have the right to choose which programs my tax dollars go towards.. based on my beliefs.. what's wrong with that? Also why do they need their own bathrooms? Why can't they use the "family " restroom? You know.. the single bathroom designed for any gender? Ugh.. drama! Adults can do what they please with themselves.. but don't force a kid into transgender roles just because it's a fad.. and I as a tax payer don't think I should have to pay for someone to convert themselves because they are confused over which body parts they should have or how they swing... I mean it's pretty simple folks.. just like in cattle if it drops, swings as a pair, or hikes a leg.. probably a bull.. if it squats, comes into heat..or has swinging teats.. probably a cow... if it has both.. it goes in the freezer.. Remember... if you think the grass in your pastures is greener on the other side it's just because it's fertilized with bullsh**. Ok, I'm off the soap box...
