  11. Thanks Bob! Yeah i try to keep it pretty quiet. My Hot Rod has just Flowmaster mufflers with turn downs, so I try not to run it late at night, although my neighbors are pretty nice. I have just one Jackass kid down the street who I have to settle down, he comes down the street doing 60mph with Daddy's Mercedes, so he and I are going to have a talk.. I have 4 little kids and this Moron is going to slow down.

  16. Just make sure it does say MACK on it. Because if it's just the Dog, everyone will keep asking you " so how long were you in the Marine Corps?"
  17. HaHa, No China that I know of....We unload 100 railcars at a time we can do it twice daily. We then ship it by barge up to New England and down to Jacksonville, Fla. We also ship by tanker to Netherlands. Usually N/S OR CSX uses two or three Engines cause the train is over a mile long.
  18. That's awesome! looks like an L3-A Mohawk they were common with the "Elephant ears on the side". here's a pic of an Norfolk Southern diesel they pull into my yard everyday shoving Ethanol cars.
  19. Sure am mowerman! here's a photo of him in Combat calling in fire on a hill in Korea. I added the caption from the book he was in "This way to War". Also here is a picture of my Uncle Eugene,third from the left bottom row, my grandfathers brother with his B-24J Liberator crew prior to a mission over Germany Winter 1944. He was assigned to the 392nd Bomb Group out of Wendling, England. Eugene was the Flight Engineer/Top turret Gunner. He's very sick and lives in Passaic N.J. The other brother Robert was wounded as a Paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Div.He passed away very young in the early 1
  20. Man I wish I could, We're having a surprise 70th birthday for Mom.. Her health is pretty bad, so we enjoy every year we can. So the trucks can wait, I'll spend time with my 5 other siblings and my Mom and Dad and all of my kids and My beautiful wife! Sunday I have to work my normal shift so that's out! Dad and I were going to run the Hot Rod up there to give it a good run. We'll try next year for sure.
  21. Thanks Firemack,glad you got to go too! And RowdyRebel, great story about your grandpa. We had a good time, mowerman those were early Stearman PT-17 trainers. They were used by just about every U.S. pilot going through aviation cadet school back during WW2 and prior to WW2. They are very beautiful to look at.. to this day their lines are timeless. The Army colors were Blue and the Navy yellow. RowdyRebel, your story reminds me of my granpa too. That generation for reasons only known to them, never said much about their service to our country.My grandpa spent 24 yrs as an Army infantry officer
  22. Yeah Mike, We had a blast!! My favorite part was when a young 10 yr old kid was talking to an older gentlemen I guess in his later 70's under the wing of a B-25 Mitchell. This kid asked the Guy " did you fly these when you were younger". The older Gentlemen who was a volunteer guest helper, told the kid " No way! I don't fly prop-jobs I'm a former F-100 Super Sabre pilot out of Nellis AFB.." I though that was cool because he showed us a large 11x17 photo of him in 1960, climbing out of this F-100 Jet with his pressure suit on..And now he's near 80 yrs old, and still sharp!
  23. Just got back from the annual WW2 weekend in Reading Pa. We made a great day of it, Dad, my brother and also my brother inlaw and My Godson. We always make a routine of it. We leave bright and early, stop and get coffee and then hit Mastorie's Diner on RT.130 south. I though it would be fitting wth the Anniversary of D-Day tomorrow. I had a chance to meet alot of hero's,(REAL AMERICAN IDOLS) including surviving memebers of the original "Band Of Brothers" 101st AirBorne 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment. Also a few Fighter aces and Bomber crews. Plus we had a chance to see alot of flying with F
