    I’ve been around Mack’s from the day I was born. I hope to one day have a small collection of old Mack trucks. I’d love an old B-75, or an older H with square fenders, or even an old C-600. Once you go Mack you never go back.

  1. Looks like it says both LHSW and LH2D. Nice truck either way, and a 3 stick trans. Awesome find.
  2. I wonder what it’d take to get it running again. Not too bad of a price if it doesn’t require too much to put it back on the road.
  3. In my CF the handles are faced down and they have the same doors as the Rs and Superliners.
  4. I took this in early October 2018. I love this rig and am most definitely in the long line to buy it if he ever decides to pass it on.
  5. In case anyone sees it I’m still interested in tracking this one down. If anyone has any pictures of it that’d be awesome because I’m having a hard time finding any. They don’t have to be new just any picture from any time of this rig will do. I have faith some parts of it are out there somewhere, but at this point I’m just trying to find more info to be able to possibly be able to identify it better. I’m unlucky enough to have never seen it in person or atleast remember seeing it. It’s district due to its square rear box fenders and sedan cab with twin molded roof lights and center dome rotator light. Any help in this is greatly appreciated. I know there’s a lot of guys that would love to see it again after being lost. It mean a lot to them. Thanks.
  6. Well I’ve been so busy these past few weeks that nothing much has been done. We plan on putting the fuel pump back in ASAP which if it isn’t tomorrow won’t be until sometime next week. Some work needs to be done pretty quickly because it almost become a tradition at this point to take one of them to the school dances over at the local art high school, give everyone something cool to look at. This homecoming was the homecoming king and his gang making a grand entrance, we’ll see about this year replacing the CF with the old L. If that goes well we have a few shows that are relatively close we’re going to try to take them both to and if that all works out you can expect to see them relatively often at shows along the east coast. Right now the goal is to get it running and then re wire the driver side headlight which currently doesn’t have any power going to it. Wish us luck. Enjoy some old pictures I’ve found of the two.
  7. I clicked on this so fast expecting to see the Truck 11 & 12 I know and love.
  8. Any clue how much he wants for it?
  9. deshalb sprechen wir kein deutsch. I only wish more people could understand even that much that these men have done.
  10. It is, I think the long chassis one is the new electric mule because it’s always stopped on the side which is something I’ve only seen with electric drivetrains, especially since I’ve NEVER seen a test mule broken down, and they have to stop to take temperatures to make sure the batteries aren’t getting too hot. Just a guess though.
  11. If I had the money right now I’d be real interested in this one, and being so small I know it’d fit in between the other 2 wagons we have if we put them in there right. Unfortunately we just blew a bunch of money and are about to go through some more bringing back our L to true roadworthiness. I’m sure there’ll be others who’d be interested with the finances to get it. If not put me down on the list for in a few years, it’d be a nice project to work on once I’m done with the L.
  12. They take a truck off the assembly line and run it loaded around without stopping it until it comes time to replace the old one which is typically decided by either a breakdown, which is pretty rare, or that the vehicle has put enough miles on it that they decide to make sure it’s stoll the way it should be. Or atleast that’s how Mack does it, basically quality control for the drivetrain plant. They’ve got a few running around at a time usually. You can tell which ones are the test mules because they’re a solid color, are hauling giant cement blocks, and have Mack Trucks Inc. written kinda small somewhere on the truck. The other ones I’ve seen are a long Cassis MR, an LR tractor, a granite tractor, and now this Pinnacle. They really never shut them off unless there’s a breakdown and they never stop but to change drivers and fill up with fuel.
  13. I happen to occasionally see the Hagerstown Drivetrain Plant’s rest mules on their runs, and today they had a new one, a brand new black Pinnacle with a huge sleeper. The only chrome is the stacks. I’ll try to get some pictures the next time I see it. It’s hauling a flatbed with a bunch of weights on the back and in smaller red text on the sleeper it says Mack Trucks Inc. along with the DOT number. It’s a pretty sweet rig.
