  1. These models were named the Freedom Series models. The main feature of the package was the extended bumper to mudflap warranty that covered nearly everything. Hence, Freedom from repair and maintenance costs. The Statue of Liberty is to represent freedom.
  2. If you haven't been to the Mack Museum in Allentown, this is a glimpse into what they have to offer. www.macktruckshistoricalmuseum.org
  3. The MH is on loan. It belongs to the Malo brothers in Canada. They saved it from export and loaned it to the Mack Museum. I believe it will be on its way to Canada before long.
  4. The D-series was built between 1955 and 1958. The 1955 and early 1956 models had a squared off grille, no additional trim pieces and no rear corner windows. The second styling added the contour grill with the fancier trim, corner windows as well as other updates to stiffen the cab. There were a total of 832 built. The unique way of accessing the engine was called the Verti-lift system. There was a mast behind the cab, similar to a forklift that contained one cylinder that was raised by a cab jack or an electric pump which was optional. The green one in the photo is mine. It is a 1956 D-42 that was purchased new for Sinclair in Tulsa, OK.
  5. I think I will put a Flex body on my 2005 Explorer frame when the body finally goes. It would be what should have been done with the Flex.
  6. Happy Independence Day!
  7. D.A. Strickland and Jim Dixon both have B-77's with Supercharged Cummins. Daryl Emery has an LT with one in as well.
  8. I was there but didn't see you. We've seen each other quite a bit lately, I don't want people to start talking.
  9. I will be stopping by Saturday on my way back through the area.
  10. There is no Tilted Kilt but there may be a bent bonnet or two in the area. I had a much better reply but I could not bring myself to post it here in public as it may be misconstrued as a slam against someone in the hobby. With enough pressure and spirits, I may share it with the gang on Saturday at the show.
  11. Fixed it. We got a new computer and that thing is giving me fits. The space bar doesn't seem to work and when I think I have done things, they do not show up. Thanks, for the heads up.
