  1. 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!
  2. I swung you an email, I’m all ears...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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
  7. Truck still available? Still interested, just not ready to buy it quite yet.
  8. Unfortunately this means that Georgia is no longer immune to fiddle wielding devils. So sad to hear he’s gone.
  9. I’d be all over this truck if I had the money for it, it’s almost exactly what I’ve had my eye set on for a while, with the main exception being the motor. Now excuse me while I try to dig up $10,000 for it :-P.
  10. Crazy how the truck hadn’t been up for sale a day even and already someone has ripped it to try to scam someone out of a few grand... luckily it’s already been taken down due to being a scam!
  11. Yeah we get it up to speed on a nice back road and we’re fine, it’s real easy!
  12. Glad to hear you received similar treatment to me! Never been to either of those places but I’m hoping to head over to this place more regularly...
  13. It’s not hard to steer when you actually get her going, but when you’re stop and go maneuvering through tight city streets it can be quite the workout...
  14. I have a 707, it’s almost all complete minus consumables like fluids and gaskets, there’s a few pushrods that’s have been spent up maybe all of those, and the block has a pretty bad crack in the side of it. Oh, it’s also completely apart. There’s pictures of everything on the thread about my 1953 Mack LS95. Make me an offer and we can go from there. Feel free to message me. Pics here:
  15. Body work and paint should be next, but we might rebuild the last of the fuel lines first, they were fine before but they seem like they might be starting to break down. Who knows, we care much more about getting her operating before making her look pretty, because if she’s out on the road she’ll shine in her own way... arms are tired from turning all through those city streets with Armstrong steering tho, let’s see how long it takes before dad bites the bullet and finds a power steering kit...
  16. Finally got to take the old dog for a much deserved walk... She barked and screamed all the way through the city streets like a bulldog should! So much fun had by all on Saturday. Excuse the purple ribbons, it was for a group of high school seniors whose colors are purple, figured it be a nice little touch for them since they didn’t have a sign to hang on ours like the other apparatus.
  17. Pete still makes 359s and Kenworth still makes W900s. They’ve been updated over the years but they’ve still got that classic look to em. I can’t imagine it’d be too hard to make a classic looking new truck based on Rs, Superliners, Bs, Ls, and Es... If they sold some as gliders I know plenty of people who’d buy atleast one without giving it a second thought.
  18. It’s my fault, everything always seems to go wrong before Pump Primers to make it so I can’t take either of my engines, and this time we were pretty much prepared for anything. Guess I’ve got a whole year to mess something up over here to make sure it goes on next year!
  19. This looks to be about what you’re looking for: https://m.facebook.com/marketplace/item/848842152281623/?ref=browse_tab&search_query=mack&tracking={"qid"%3A"6820742446761672588"%2C"mf_story_key"%3A"3772209402853497"%2C"commerce_rank_obj"%3A"{\"target_id\"%3A3772209402853497%2C\"target_type\"%3A0%2C\"primary_position\"%3A-1%2C\"ranking_signature\"%3A0%2C\"commerce_channel\"%3A503%2C\"value\"%3A0%2C\"upsell_type\"%3Anull}"}
  20. The Zenith on my 707 was the first one we ever attempted to rebuild, and as long as you don’t over tighten the injectors you’ll be fine, they’re supposed to be decently loose...
  21. Awesome truck man! You’ll probably get the info you need to your mechanic if you contact the Mack Museum. There’s 3 different versions of the 707 engine and each one had different ignition timing and governor speeds.
  22. Well that’s to this quarantine I’ve had some extra time on my hands... finally edited my footage from PPP last year for YouTube. As soon as it’s public (should be very soon) enjoy! Also, don’t mind the music towards the end, I needed to fill the noise void and that was the best I could find while avoiding a potential copyright lawsuit...
  23. I told the guy a price on an old Mack and he was 3 seconds away from buying it thinking it was going to make him a fortune, pretty quickly I told him nobody who knows what they’re talking about would pay nearly that much for the thing... he realized quickly that old trucks aren’t worth all that much...
  24. If they got a battery to it and got it to crank over a few times, even if it didn’t start I think that’d raise the price a bit... usually if it turns over you haven’t broken anything too bad... scrap price sounds really good for the moment, but I’d star negotiations a little lower, maybe $2000-$2500
