  1. Back in the 50's and 60's the fleet I drove for had all their Macks (LJ, A, B, F and R's) were Mack green cabs and red frames and wheels. Years later they changed their fleet colors to white cabs and blue frames and wheels.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Great looking Peterbilt towing the Mack. Didn't know Secondi Bros. truck stop was still open.
  5. Nothing better than an R model Mack and your family agrees. Very nice
  6. 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.
  7. Now that would be something, getting slapped in the face with a setbof boobs and losing my false teeth. Life is good.
  8. 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.
  9. The only attention that she needs is a salute. ATTENTION!! Beautiful, be proud.
  10. What a gorgeous B model! How about some more pics from the sides and interior? You can be proud of this one.
  11. james j neiweem, Me either. Every seperate post has that little box in it.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. It really doesn't matter. Facing in or out, looking left or right. As long as it is MACK it is the best!
  17. I just signed in today after being away for a few days and found this new format. I don't like it one bit. I found it hard to navigate and can not find the sign out icon. I hope you can make it more simplified. Navypoppop
  18. They say a picture is worth a 1000 words but all I can say is WOW! What a prize that would be to have in the driveway. Imagine how sweet it would look brought back to glory. MLM, Mack lives do matter.
  19. With the success of Autocar and the new convential cab DC-64 it is just a matter of time before this model will be offered as a tractor. With the quality and design of this model it will become a favorite with most people who want something new and better than what is offered today.
  20. AAA was a freight trucking company from New Jersey back in 50s-80s. A Mack fleet of mostly B and U models.
  21. I do not want to hijack this thread but wanted to ask any of you from the Trenton or Phila area if you have ever heard of or seen HERMS TRUCKING INC or H M ROYAL INC both from Trenton, NJ? My dad and I both worked at these companies way back when. Herms had red/white R/U/F Macks and pulled flatbeds and dry vans. HM Royal is still in business today but only has 1 IH straight truck. HM Royal had green/red B/R/F Macks then they changed to white/blue R Macks and pulled bulk tanks and dry vans. Thanks for any information on these and I apologize for the hijack.
  22. Hurstscrambler, What a beautiful truck! Your determination, skill and pride are starting to finally to come to completion. I totally enjoyed reading your entire 11 pages of posts and photos from beginning to now and can't wait for the final compleated truck. You are a true master at following your dream to be able to complete this project. My hat is off to you sir. Best of luck with her.
  23. AZB755V8, That engine is so beautiful I would be inclined to drive the truck without the hood just so everyone could see it.
