  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...
  14. Hoping to make it up that way tonight with the CF and be there all day tomorrow!
  15. Well folks, I almost can’t believe I’m saying this, but the truck has truly been found! I hope to speak more on it in the future but right now I’m so thankful it’s still around!
  16. I swung you an email, I’m all ears...
  17. The local airport wanted to have a Wings and Wheels expo where people could bring their cool cars and maybe right in some antique airplanes. So what else would I do than take the old dog for a walk! And apparently I wasn’t the only one with that idea...
  18. Yup, George certainly narrated the show, seems like someone went through the trouble of picking out the best moments for you! Just keep in mind Carlin had quite an interesting sense of humor and your kids may not be ready to hear his inside quite yet...
  19. News I’ve read says Tesla Semi production line is currently being built, and they hope to start producing the trucks by the end of the year or early next year. It’ll be interesting to how they do in the industry...
  20. I’d like to see Rivian take over this project. This truck is a good idea, it just seems to be led by someone whose bark is bigger than their bite. Rivian has not disappointed, and on a similar note, neither has Tesla. I can think of one example of Tesla setting a goal they haven’t achieved, just many times of being behind schedule in reaching those goals. The one thing they didn’t accomplish was battery swap stations being common as a way of charging your vehicle faster, and they did have a prototype they abandoned, and probably for good reason seeing as their next semi will be able to go 500 miles fully loaded on a 30 minute charge, real stats they’re actually achieving on their 2 prototypes, with production starting soon. I really don’t understand why the media doesn’t cover this stuff more! Oh wait, yes I do, I think I remember something about companies like Boeing and Nikola paying people to write bad news about SpaceX and Tesla, one claiming the rocket is unsafe for humans to fly on, and the other claiming Tesla stoke their design when as its turning out may be the other way around...
  21. Truck still available? Still interested, just not ready to buy it quite yet.
  22. Unfortunately this means that Georgia is no longer immune to fiddle wielding devils. So sad to hear he’s gone.
