  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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. Happy Independence Day!
  5. D.A. Strickland and Jim Dixon both have B-77's with Supercharged Cummins. Daryl Emery has an LT with one in as well.
  6. 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.
  7. I will be stopping by Saturday on my way back through the area.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  19. I have a crew that is interested. I'll be making reservations. Post any interest here!
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
