  1. yea i say your truck your money build it the way you want it. i think it looks pretty good. was told that last r model i did was nothing more than a parts truck but i put it to work with no problems and as far as i know its still running up and down the road. i do things the way i want them and don't really care what others think.
  2. i love when people tell you what you should do with things you work for and pay for with your money. you should have left it sitting in the weeds somewhere rusting away instead of doing what you want with it. ill bet the coronavirus made you do it. keep up the good work
  3. I'm pretty sure i scrapped most everything off that. i know i don't have anything now
  4. i don't know why my pictures post upside anymore
  5. you might be thinking of mine, i thought that at first but the new owner painted the bottom half red
  6. i can get some pictures when i go to garage next time
  7. also have R model air cleaner,battery box covers, tan dash parts gauge panels with gauges and brake valves, small diameter fuel tank with brackets off 83 Superliner, ch and mh stack brackets, ch sun visor, pair of new shocks. small misc parts. would like to move everything no longer have any trucks would like the room in my garage back make me an offer on everything. one cowl panel at watts is 1100 ill let everything go for a lot less than that
  8. still have most of this if anyones interested. also have a couple air wipers i replaced with electric ones
  9. i never saw to many chrome dayton wheels around here but they have a lot down under
  10. that green #20 Superliner in the background looks pretty sharp. i like that color
  11. i don't care what anyone says there was never a better truck built than an R model
  12. you know you can't make money with a 30 year old truck like that. Lol. i couldn't resist
  13. I'm running a 2016 mack cxu 612 doing ltl freight rarely have over 20000 in the box and avg 6 mpg. the first truck i owned a 1969 r model pulling a dump grossing 75000 to 80000 or more and avg 5 mpg. not much improvement in all those years. maybe running all flat land you might get better but running in the hills that about the best i can do.
  14. i drive for an ltl company. i was in a 07 international with 1.3 million on it ran every day. you might have some little thing wrong but was fixed that night and back to work next day. newer trucks we have dashes light up buzzers go off and they're down for days or weeks. i took a 16 mack because i figured its only a matter of time until they retire the older ones even though they make money every day. i still say its smarter to rebuild the older ones.
  15. yea because new trucks never break down. the newest truck i owned was a 2000 and i ran year round never had a problem keeping a few bucks in the checkbook. new or old you gotta do some maintenance.
  16. b model is in Worthington, Pa
