  1. Thanks, does that mean that the older heavier RD 6 series kept the old hood for a while but the sloped hood was on the lighter R models?
  2. When was the classic round light Mack R model replaced with the rectangular light RD and set back axle RB models which retained the similar cab? I know the real replacement for the R was the CH but the classic cab model also survived with the evolved hoods of RD and RB probably at the time when cooling systems got updated. I also know that there were heavy models of the classic R models designated as RD and also the heavy duty RD 800 series which stayed in production years after. Did this change also happen at the same time when the classic DM evolved into the set back axle DM69
  3. I agree, I think the R and maybe the DM deserve their own book because they were probably Mack's longest running models.
  4. There are some nice Mack photo archives books out there that are dedicated to certain model lines such as AC, AP, E, L, B and fire truck models that also describe things about them. How come there are no dedicated book on probably the longest produced model like the R or DM for example or models afterwards? Yes there are a few general books on Mack history but it would have been nice to see on more models with info on them.
  5. I wonder where this truck ended up after UPS because it is painted white and not in UPS colors?
  6. This rare AWD Mack MH was discussed here before. It was a pleasant surprise to see it at the Gerhart’ show. Not sure what driving condition it is in.
  7. Yep and thats why I rather see them go over seas and last another 20 yrs or more than getting crushed. OR better yet see them sold cheap to collectors here who want to show them 😃
  8. Most 90s and even later Land Rovers were absolute overpriced junk. They would have major problems before 80K such as buring oil etc. No wonder he company changed ownership so often. When we took them on trade we were lucky to get out of them without losing money. They were more of status symbols. The over seas market ones were better and simpler and often did not have the status symbol electronic junk on them.
  9. I sometimes drive by a dismantling yard near me ( Brookfield Resource Management) in Elmsford NY just to see the old trucks they have bought or hauled in. They seem to buy quite a few from municipal auctions. I know one in particular a 71 Flintstone R tractor that sell ran and drove well which they bought for $1600. Lots of trucks that look like they still have life in them. A few years ago someone told me that some were exported which to me is fine. Better than getting chopped up. How ever lately I learned that they no longer sell whole trucks, they all get chopped up and you can by parts
  10. Weird truck. What was the point of the windows in the dash or cowl area?
  11. How does a RD frame depth and thickness compared to a DM?
  12. Beautiful, what is the powertrain? It would be nice to see it and that Australian truck at a show on east coast.
