  1. Brocky, I used to stop there on my way from Trenton, NJ to Boston, Ma back in the early 70's. It was fine then even with the bunk room upstairs. Heck the Mayflower was OK too before it became the Pilot. Today I would not go there even if broke down.
  2. Good luck with your U model. According to your photos it appears it might be a E-6 Maxidyne with extended service capacity. Does it have a 5 speed or 6 speed 2 stick transmission? I'm envious and sorry that It is not in my yard. I hope you have fun with her.
  3. Great looking Peterbilt towing the Mack. Didn't know Secondi Bros. truck stop was still open.
  4. Nothing better than an R model Mack and your family agrees. Very nice
  5. Not quite Hayseed. At 6'1" and 210 and 71 years young I still work out a little and exercise as often as I can. I should proof read my responses better because it sure sounds that I do. Caused a good chuckle on my end.
  6. Now that would be something, getting slapped in the face with a setbof boobs and losing my false teeth. Life is good.
  7. Looks like a seat from a B model. I saw them when I used to ride with my Dad. I think that they were made that way to clear the 2 stick shifters. They made for a good bed area and a lot more comfortable than a piece of plywood.
  8. The only attention that she needs is a salute. ATTENTION!! Beautiful, be proud.
  9. What a gorgeous B model! How about some more pics from the sides and interior? You can be proud of this one.
  10. james j neiweem, Me either. Every seperate post has that little box in it.
  11. SkippyMack, Great color choice! The hammered effect is excellent and it will compliment the entire finished project. I look forward to your finished project. Your shop assistants and you are doing some excellent work on bringing the old girl back to life. I'm envious and happy for you.
  12. That sure is a sweet looking Dog! Any pics of the inside of the cab and under the hood? I'm sure it won't last too long.
  13. Thanks for the updated information Vlad. It sounds like you have quite a bit of work ahead. It will make for some real good reading on this site. I always enjoy seeing your work as you are indeed a craftsman and strive for perfection. Keep the pictures coming too. Thank you sir.
  14. Vlad, How is the R project coming along? I remember seeing many St-Germain trucks when I ran New York state and New England many years ago. I can't wait to see your finished project as your work and dedication to detail is impecable.
