    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. I also have a knack for steam locomotives and space travel...

  1. They’ve found a new home now
  2. Listen I’m not so much of a conspiracy nut that I think they’re putting microchips in the shots, especially since the shots were developed with help from the Trump administration just rolled out by Biden’s. But I do believe in freedom of choice, and if you don’t want to take the shot, for any reason really but especially if it’s because it hasn’t been tested enough; you’ve definitely got a case there. You can’t roll out a shot in a year and expect it to be tested thoroughly. There’s a lot of conflicting info on the effects of it too, that really makes you think… You know I keep thinking about running for office but I realize they’ll just screw me over like the Dems keep screwing Bernie because I don’t align with either party enough. I just wanna let people live how they wanna live man, as long they’re not harming anyone else why stop their fun? I think a friend of mine put it best: I want to have the ability to open carry and smoke weed at my gay friend’s wedding that they paid for with Bitcoin, plus they’d have to find a priest and cake baker willing to work them. Not saying I would, I just don’t think the government should be able to tell me I can’t. But hey, that’s just my two sense…
  3. Much thanks for the compliments y’all! Not such a bad idea welding the wheels together, seeing as I’ve taken up welding in the last year. Guess I can never have too many burn barrels lying around… Of course that’s assuming some guy with a love of originality doesn’t come along looking for a set of 10r 20 split rims. That’s what my dad is hoping for but I think he’s going to be waiting a while on that one. Guess they’ll get put in the back of the shop with the cracked 707 motor waiting for the same kind of guy. Lol. Trucks will probably make it out this summer, definitely want to try to do Pump Primers in Harrisburg with the CF this year but we’ll see.
  4. 10R 20 wheels and tires. 2 steers, 4 drives. 30 year old tires included just in case those interest you at all. Pretty much always garage kept since put on the truck in 1973. Steers are the 2 piece style and drives are the 3 piece. Definitely need some work to make them look good, and you can see the remnants of a half done paint job on them. Looking for $25 a piece OBO.
  5. Got the CF running again a few months ago. Far too much messing around to figure out what the actual issue was, chalking it up to a bad prime and hoping it doesn’t come back. Anyways, decided it was time to swap out the 30 year old tires, and when we started looking at price we decided to swap out the windowmakers too. Took the opportunity to paint the wheelhubs aswell, still needs a little touch up here and there but that’ll be after the paint dries and the truck has had another bath. Took her around the block too and she rides pretty smooth. The L will get the same treatment soon. Anyways, guess I’ve gotta figure out what to do with these old wheels now.
  6. Was just looking for pictures of old Mack military trucks for someone I know, and I stumbled upon an post about some yard trucks out in Taos Mesa, New Mexico, and glance at that rare little W model with that interesting looking sleeper. Figured I’d share! Link to the post for the curious:https://www.curbsideclassic.com/blog/cc-outtakes/curbside-outtakes-more-working-trucks-from-new-mexico/
  7. I haven’t, a little too far away to take a trip during COVID, but someone has gone for me and sent back pictures. I just don’t want to anger the new owner by posting them without his permission or anything. It’s in rough shape but from what I’ve heard it miraculously still putts around his land every now and then...
  8. I thought I had seen this one before, sure enough, Gerharts this year was the place. Don’t know what else to add outside of what’s already been said...
  9. Trying to get some old company members involved but right now the current owner doesn’t seem willing to sell. That’s alright really, supposedly the thing even still runs and he puts it around his property sometimes. Guy owns a lot of trucks, it’s in alright hands. Still going to try to get her eventually, but for now just knowing she’s still out there and in safe hands is good enough for me.
  10. We’re trying to troubleshoot an issue with the headlights on the old firetruck, only to find that the buckets are pretty rusted out. Could use some of the headlight cables too, the ones that run through the fender and up to the bucket. I can get pics of the buckets and wires if need be.
  11. I’m good with that, anything to share such an amazing event with those who couldn’t make it for one reason or another!
  12. I’ve got a few more individual and other manufacturer pics... I might get this whole album uploaded some day 😂
  13. Should’ve come down a ways and parked with the rest of the CFs, we even had an open spot for you! Although I suppose yours might feel a little strange seeing as it’s not a firetruck anymore...
