  1. York Corrugated, York, PA. Tractor for between the plant and warehouse.
  2. After thoughtful consideration, The ATCA Board of Directors has decided to cancel the 2020 National Meet at Macungie. Concern for the health and safety of our members combined with government social restrictions left no alternative. Currently, our business office is closed, but our office manager is able to access email and voicemails. Refunds will be made for show preregistrations when normal business resumes. We will post any updates on the ATCA website and on Facebook. ATCA asks all of our friends to follow all health precautions from the CDC and to remain aware of all requirement
  3. He H-67 and similar models were introduced two years prior to the G. The G design was a carry over from the H. I have always liked the H-67 style, good ones are hard to find. I've looked at many over the years that weren't worth hauling home.
  4. 275, 6 speed, runs out about 70. The gravedigger has already started -plucking the ckicken off of it. It is going to be used most of the time but will show up at ATCA shows like the National Meet and Mack Days in Lititz.
  5. I helped the gravedigger exhume this last weekend.
  6. 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.
  7. If you haven't been to the Mack Museum in Allentown, this is a glimpse into what they have to offer. www.macktruckshistoricalmuseum.org
  8. 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.
  9. 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-
  10. 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.
  11. Happy Independence Day!
  12. D.A. Strickland and Jim Dixon both have B-77's with Supercharged Cummins. Daryl Emery has an LT with one in as well.
  13. 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.
  14. I will be stopping by Saturday on my way back through the area.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. Please join the Central Pennsylvania Chapter of the Antique Truck Club of America at Gerhart Equipment in beautiful Lititz, PA for a magnificient Mack event. We hope to see you there!

  18. That could very well be. The visor looks like something from another world...
  19. This is a photo from my collection. It shows the set-back MH chassis with RH drive at the ED&TC.
  20. This is a photo from my collection. It shows the hood to cowl joint following the contour of the R-model style cowl.
  21. I had trouble with the computer. I'll have to load it from work.
  22. There is no registration fee, but there will be a donation bucket at the registration table to assist the Central Pennsylvania Chapter of ATCA in covering the costs for the event. Last year was a washout that hit our checking account pretty hard. Hopefully this year will be kinder to us.
  23. Nearly all Mack models prior to 1979 used the long ear dog. A,B, early B,C,D,E,F, early F,H,L,M,N,R all varities,U,W,WS 1933 was the first full model year of use for the Bulldog radiator cap ornament. Included on the list of trucks would be, AB, AC and all variations of that model. Then you include the Fire Apparatus, All of the number series, then the letters and finally the two letter models. That dog really got around!
