    Mack RD 690

    When I was selling Mack's, in the previous century, often our Sales Manager would order extras of a spec if it was mostly typical. That is if customer "X" ordered 8 he would submit an order for 10 thinking that he might be able to talk the customer into the 2 extra as they would not all arrive at once and sometimes the end of the order might be months out. The other option was to just add the extras to the floor plan to have new stock. A long time customer ordered several RD's & RB's every year & we would always add on 3 or more to each order. There were several other customers who ran the same spec just because they had bought some of these "overages" years earlier. It is a sales advantage to have a common spec on the lot that works well for several customers.

    A first gen Cruiseliner with tubes all around and a straight bumper. About a 1 in a million! Nice score.

    The Meeting 👍🏁🇺🇸

    Dan had a complete explanation of Sam Peckinpah's reasoning behind mounting the 5th wheel so far back but I cannot remember what it was. I wish Dan would have kept his site up or that someone else would have assumed control of the Convoy part of it. The research he did and the details that he had about the movie were incredible.
  8. I remember reading about this apparatus within weeks, maybe days of the attack. It's really cool to see that a truck, 60 miles away, was known by someone, operating at this large scene, who could make the call to get it in there.
  9. I was also surprised to see the CF F Model. A very interesting truck. I, too, would like to know the entire back story on this & how many there might have been.

    Rubber Duck Truck

    It would be nice if someone could track down Dan Bruno to see if he would allow a site, such as BMT, to have all of his info about the truck(s) and movie posted again.

    Rubber Duck Truck

    https://www.facebook.com/Rubberducktruck1970/ From what I understand via FB it is now in GA.
  12. In my younger days I had two 1978 Trans Am's. A black automatic & a gold 4 speed. County roads & large parking lots could make for a lot of fun. I just called them "doing Rockford's"!
  13. The XJ8 isn't much fun in anything but sunshine. It likes to hydroplane in heavy rain and I have twice looped it around at the top of the exit ramp from I69 south bound onto US 30 west bound. Both times very cold, but mostly dry roads. Somehow I found the only small slick spot there was at the top of that ramp but managed to keep it off both the inside & outside walls. The 2nd time it happened I did a little better job of keeping my wits about me. As she came around I bumped it into neutral then when we were rolling backwards I put it in reverse, nailed it, cranked it around and back to neutral then into drive and drove out of it almost like I knew what I was doing. Maybe Hal Needham wasn't the best choice of hero's when I was 13, 14, 15....
  14. I really like my XJ8. At this point after 4 years it is probably going to be replaced however. I hate to let her go. I like the response from the 4.0 It's amazing to me that such a small V8 can drive so well & get such good fuel mileage.

    Happy Birthday Superdog!

    I've been texting with him this morning. All y'all know he can be a bit bullheaded, well..... He had trouble logging into the site quite awhile back so he just doesn't try anymore. I'm trying to beat him up & get him to reach out to Barry to rectify the issue. We'll see if I did any good or not.
