  1. I love talking my Mack fire engines out for rides. It’s my opinion that the folks I’ve met in both the fire truck world and truck world are awesome people. I’ve helped and been helped by total strangers which has often developed into cherished relationships.
  2. Cool, I bet you’re excited for her to arrive. I’m familiar with Enniskillen. My wife’s uncle would go shooting at Crom Castle. One of my friends family is from Fivemiletown and I used to have a connection in a a a a Belleek. Oddly enough my friends cousin knew my wife’s uncle. It’s just shows how small the world is. Don
  3. Hello I think that’s a cool idea to import the truck. Where in Northern Ireland are you from. My mother in-law was from Dromore County Down. She was the only one in her family to come to the states so my wife and I go over to see her family. My interest is in fire apparatus and I always wanted to import a Green Goddess.
  4. are you still in prospect, ct.  I left prospect for Knoxville TN,  never saw your trucks..  you must know Rocky.

      Yes I’m still in Prospect. I know Rocky but do not know him personally. My wife and I moved here 20 years ago. My trucks are stored in Bethlehem. In a few more years I hope to be heading south also. 

  5. Every time I’ve registered a truck in CT with classic plates I had a federal annual inspection done. It makes the transaction go smoother.
  6. According to a quick search on the internet the photo is from Security Road located in Hagerstown MD. The building appears to be in a complex owned by LaFarge Holcim which is a concrete plant/ precast facility.
  7. Awesome thanks, I just hung my 1992 MACK calendar on the wall.
  8. Thanks for the update. I love seeing other people’s projects.
  9. I would be interested to know what you come up with when you remount the trim. I’ve been wondering what to use myself. I was thinking about getting a copy of the drawings from the MACK museum and getting them reproduced. Good luck Don
  10. Welcome aboard, yeah I have not seen any Mack trucks while over visiting my wife’s family and I sure have not seen any NASCAR’s while visiting. Her cousins husband is in to rally cars and competes several times a year. They are in Whales just outside of Swansea Take care, Don
  11. http://dcaptain.com/beaconraylights.html The light is a Federal Signal product. Contact the guy at the link above. He is a good guy who has gone through a lot of effort to research and reproduce parts to restore the light. He also sells restored lights. The light you have posted has an optional piece below the skirt for mounting on a pole. This piece will be the hardest to locate in my opinion but it does show up on eBay. Good of luck with your project. Don
