  1. Honest question , what would a B61 in the same configuration that's restored be worth/sell for? Like a current market value.
  2. Kill them. Our country is going to take the pansy pro Islam way to fix it though. Come to my house in CO and harass my family since they are former Military dependents and ill fix you.
  3. Just a update and a couple pics of my Mack we bought working around Denver. They did buy and have installed 10 red powder coated painted rims , I like that . Wish the whole truck was red. And a few pics of the Champ Truck race a while back here in Colorado. You couldn't ask for nicer people.
  4. We pulled the plastic junk coils off the Mack and put rubber ones on. MUCH better, all our trucks use those from the new Mack to the 2015 KW
  5. Whats the mileage and all on how often you should change the oil In the new MP8's? I want to make sure it gets in the shop as it needs to -
  6. Yep, I spent a lot of time on that truck and in that truck. I drove it from NC to CO in 3 days. SC should have been NC in his ad. Don't know how it got a 2nd owner in NC lol. it was 100% turn key when I sold it, I had MHC Kenworth do some of the work also. And we know its a 9 speed with the rear end re geared
  7. I was told all the movies cars were crushed after filming , its was Pontiac's rule. Not even a shift knob was saved. The KW lived, then got lost in time somewhere. Of course that's only in the info from the1st movie.
  8. Ive been through 2 fill ups at 150 gallons each and my DEF gauge has barely moved. With the MP8
  9. I had Western Dist. tow my Columbia and the set of 28' doubles behind it last month, one wrecker towed all that from the mountains down to Denver, about 60 miles and it was 450.00 , he pulled the drive shaft on the tractor and didn't charge extra.
  10. That's great, im going to try that out and see how it goes.
  11. Nuts, now I need to buy another antenna. Thanks for the info, is there an antenna that goes on the pass side mirror?
  12. Jim , I like it and I changed it to blue to match the Pinnacle today. When I key my hand mic the antenna warning comes on ? Is the antenna on the driver side mirror the one for the CB?
  13. Do you guys have any luck with the new Cobra 29 LX ? I bought one at Loves and asked the shop to install it in the new Mack.
  14. Im gonna have to check this thread more with those 2 '44's lol
  15. Bob they call me Hollywood too , I was in a TV commercial for my company with the truck. Gonna have to change it to Phantom 309 because my new Mack will put them all to shame, and seeing nothing but tail lights.
  16. I agree, I have driven my FL Columbia for a year, taken good care of it, but now close to 900k miles I get my Mack. I will have to pull my Mack mud flaps off the FL and install them on the new truck. The MP8 will be a lot better than my Detroit. If this Mack holds up well and last with the proper care that I give I hope they will buy 2 more Mack's next year and go away from KW which our fleet is most of now. It will be a true test with the new Mack and the new KW and how they stay on the road . It was nice seeing the Mack seats, dog prints in the floor, Mack logo and name on everything. I still don't know what to do with myself. Thanks guys. Its nice to be back in the dog house with all of you!
  17. I run in the state of Colorado with the double '48's. I hope to retire from them and take her with me ... only a dream
  18. They said they have a budget set for 2 new trucks to replace a old '04 379 Pete and a '06 Columbia. They know im die hard Mack and I sold the person that does the truck purchases on buying one. The other truck they just bought is a new T880 KW, but its red. I owe the guy a box of cigars for doing that. Now I have a truck I can drive until I retire.
  19. As I posted a while back I was looking for a new or used Mack for my company to purchase for me. Well 2 months later they finally got me a 2014 Mack Vision . I spec'd it and picked it out. This will be my 1st Mack I have driven for work. A plain , non chrome every where flat top single stack Mack. I only wished they could have gotten them to have it painted red and black. It arrived yesterday from the dealer to our company shops. I took it for a test drive yesterday afternoon. I had a smile on my face the whole time. The Maint. dept manager said I was like in the movie Roger Rabbit when he drove the car in the cartoon town and the sun is smiling the flowers were dancing , big rainbows. etc. well it sure seemed like it to me. I get to bring it home from Denver Dec.4th , they have to wait until the 3rd to have the company logos' and all put on the doors. And my name on the door.. lucky me. Along with a pintle and air set up on the rear for doubles and triples and a tool box. I also was given a new Mack jacket and a ton of hats. Hell I still cant believe it. Im sure I feel like some of you others when you got your first Mack for work. P.S. They put a pink outfit on the hood for me... ha .. ha .. ha.. And a pic or two of my current Columbia .
  20. Ive seen the truck in passing on a run I had. With it not running id say its real heavy on the asking price.
  21. I got a call back about 4 days ago from Bruckner. The salesman is working on getting me the truck we want. Thanks for the offer. they seem to be good people .
  22. That was back home near Cowpens , where my mom grew up and my grandparents lived. I wish I was riding with ya.
  23. Sure wish the Mack dealer in Denver would call us back to sell us a truck..
