  1. This question has been raised several times, lets get to the bottom of it! The Hayward, California plant was opened in January 1966. They started with the FL and in 1967 constructed the RL model. These models featured aluminum components mounted on aluminum frame rails. FS and RS models were introduced in 1967, these featured steel frame rails with similar components to the L versions. In 1974 The Hayward plant added the W "Cruiseliner" model to its lineup. These were built both in Hayward and ultimately in the Macungie Assembly Facility. In 1978 when the RW "Superliner" was introduced, they were built both in Hayward and Macungie. The serial number plate on the door will specify Mack Western, Hayward, CA. The Western plant closed in 1980 pulling the assembly back to Pennsylvania. Did assemble any other models in Hayward? Does anyone have any interesting tales pertaining to the Hayward plant or their Western products?

    Body-on-frame [light] trucks refuse to die

    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.

  4. D.A. Strickland and Jim Dixon both have B-77's with Supercharged Cummins. Daryl Emery has an LT with one in as well.
  5. Typically has used standard emblems to identify their products. Over the years there have been occasions when they have strayed from the norm. I have several examples, can any others be identified? D-models, the second styling, the version with the rounded front grille, rear cab corner windows, and the dog emblems below the vent wing windows on the doors. The side profile rounded style Bulldogs in the emblems are approximately 1/2 the size of the standard dog profile. N-models, the budd cab Mack that everyone thinks is a Ford. The Mack script on the doors below the windshield posts is approximately 1/2 the size of the standard Mack script. Cruiseliner, the mid '70s attempt at an aluminum cabover. The long ear modern era Bulldog side profile finished in silver or gold, surrounded by a red glass sunburst. These emblems were not used on any other product offered by . There are several other examples that I will hold off on for now. Lets hear what you have to say! Doug

    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.

    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.

    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.
  11. That could very well be. The visor looks like something from another world...
  12. This is a photo from my collection. It shows the set-back MH chassis with RH drive at the ED&TC.
  13. This is a photo from my collection. It shows the hood to cowl joint following the contour of the R-model style cowl.
  14. I had trouble with the computer. I'll have to load it from work.

    Gerhart Mack Days coming up

    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.

    Mack bulldog ornament model

    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!
  17. I have several images at home in my photo collection. I'll share them over the weekend. As the slides are reviewed and images discovered in the archives, I will be sure to share what is available.
  18. I was involved in a discussion last week with a retiree from Hayward regarding the design of the RW. The design was done in Hayward by their people. I have seen photos of prototypes of the RW and have several in my collection. The early versions had a contoured cowl much like the standard R-model and the hood was contoured to fit. The outcome of our discussion was that the Brockway cowl which were being used on the 700 series influenced the cowl for the RW and ultimately the Facelift RD. Images from the 70"s and 80's were captured on slides. Those images are being reviewed and digitized for archiving when time permits. Other than the slides, there are very few photos available of models and model development through this period.

    Lost E9 Engines

    The engines did arrive at the museum. The green Hypercharge is on display with the cutaway E-9. As the displays rotate, the other engines will be on the floor.

    Rodeo du Camion, Canada

    I had a great weekend with some truckin' friends in Notre Dame du Nord. We saw some crazy stuff!
  22. The ex-Tidewater N was sitting roadside for sale up until last year. This year it was gone. It was getting rusty and somewhat picked over when I saw it last.
  23. They would certainly be of use to the Mack Trucks Historical Museum. They gladly accept donations, that is how they stay open.
  24. Dutchman's is closed for many years. The bulk of Marmon stock was purchased by Chicago Marmon. The last NOS parts I bought were from them. Check out the Marmin Facebook page and look for Ray Keens, he should be able to assist.
  25. I thought about visiting on Tuesday, are you going to be around?

      Maint,1, kinda cool,the resemblance,between the black general and the red or orange Diamond T. Made a trip once in an 80's General , they had a lot of potential,sadly GM,quit making class 8 trucks.Interesting, that outfit in Hershey Pa is making  Diamond T glider kits.Read their ad on Google.only three guys working the assembly line,everything hand built.

      I've been following that as well, I hope all goes good for them. I like the Diamond T. Needs head gaskets and an oil cooler as soon as I get time.
