  1. Pretty sure I had a Mack calendar with a similar photo on it back in the 80s...

    Good morning Andy, Have you made any more progress on your International project? It’s been a great project to follow. Dave

    89 Superliner RWS754

    When I worked at H&K about 6 years ago they had a few older ones still on the line that were pretty tired. The drivers always seemed to take good care of the Superliners though.

    89 Superliner RWS754

    Do you think it’s an H&K one Mike? Mileage seems a bit low to have come out of their fleet - they have at least one that they are/were still running daily recently. More photos/details on the dealer site: https://www.coopskw.com/product/1989-mack-superliner-rws754-18p262/
  5. I don’t remember hearing the fate of the Superliner that you used to drive with the frame issues. Seeing that your still in the R I’m guessing the Superdog is still sidelined. You keep the R looking great! One of the things I enjoy about living in the Philly area is all the old Macks that are on the road every day. DavCut

    1945 Sterling HC144 Tractor

    Great photo! I was introduced to this truck by my Dad at the ATHS show in Marlborough Massachusetts back in the early 90’s. If I’m remembering the story correctly Dad had moved equipment around eastern MA with this truck for his uncle, Howard Blades, who was the second owner. Dad knew it was the same truck due to the groves on the capstan winch drum from his uncle using cables instead of ropes. Is the truck still owned by Ted Valpey? If I remember correctly Ted had purchased it back in the late 80’s early 90’s from the Blades family and completed the restoration just before the Marlborough show. Ted’s daughter is an artist who created an amazing drawing of this truck. As far as I know my Mom still has a print copy hanging in her home. Thank you for the memories! DavCut

    Macungie Morning

    Thank you Red Horse. It was great to meet and talk with you. I did catch up with Danny. Maybe someday after I get my kids through college and pay for weddings I’ll be able to have a truck of my own... DavCut

    Did Daryl Gushee pass on?

    A major loss to the preservation of old iron - especially snow removal related equipment. I had the opportunity to see him in action at the Kemp Auction in NH. He appeared to be grabbing everything that he could to keep it from the scrap hunters. I was especially impressed with the work he was putting into the recreation of a 1928 Linn Truck with what has been established as the first hydraulic Gradall mounted on it. From the photos he was basically starting with a painted shell of the original machine and recreating it piece by piece. Previous "restoration" had been basically paint only. Last I had seen online Daryl had it back to running and operating. Amazing dedication! Apparently God had a complex rigging or truck restoration project that he needed an expert to take care of. RIP.
  11. Don't forget about the John Haines show on the 28th of October.
  12. If Daryl Gushee was buying many should be safe. I was at the Kemp auction a few years ago where he was going after just about anything with a snowplow. I haven't made it up to Maine to see his collection yet but I've heard that it is amazing!
