  1. I believe so. I think this truck was one of the aluminum frame and cab setups.
  2. Neat old tanker. Photo from scanned slide purchased on eBay.
  3. Clearly. These wall street guys know how to play the game.
  4. Is the deal really done yet? I though the DOJ had to clear purchases like this for the very reason you mentioned.
  5. Here is the Buffalo crash truck in later years.
  6. Saw this at the Mack Customer Center back in 2015. Export only...or so the numerous stickers all over the truck said.
  7. Gotta start importing from the exporters. 😆
  8. Yes, just the other day I spotted 2 IH and 1 KW COE on the NYS Thruway. IN THE SAME DAY! That's 2020 for ya! 😆
  9. Saw this in a Facebook group this past weekend. The cat is out of the bag.
  10. Here is one from the ATHS National Show in KY a few years back. If I recall correctly it had an insanely low amount of miles, possible under 100, it was purchased by a readymix company and garaged. Never used.
  11. Wow....leaves much up to speculation. I would say this project is pretty much dead now.
  12. I never thought much of these truck as the often replaced a much tougher and better truck, the Autocar DC or DK. But as the years wear on they don't seem that bad compared to the ugly new junk.
  13. This reminds me of the U.S.S. Miami fire in which a civilian worker that was out of vacation/sick time set a fire because he wanted to go home. He lit a bag of rags on fire in a state room and effectively destroyed a 1.56 billion dollar sub!
  14. Thanks! It's hard to find time with a 2 year old running around the house! 😆
  15. Let's start a Duplex thread. Might be awhile before it takes off. 😆 1964 Duplex with a 230 Cummins, 5x4 OD, Rockwell top drive axles. Former Former Onondaga County DOT truck # 22.
  16. This is the best thread on the entire site.
  17. Nice little project under way.
  18. I would pay admission for this show. Gladly.
  19. True, but Ustain repeatedly pushed the "magic pill" of EGR in the Maxxforce line despite his engineers telling him it was flawed product that would never work correctly. From this article as CCJ.com So the end sum was Navistar trying to meet ridiculous government mandates with unreliable technology.
  20. Nope. The licensing on for real world models for ATS takes forever. The game has been out for maybe 2 or 3 years and they just released the International Prostar. On the Spintires side they seem to have no trouble licensing products from GM, Ford, International, etc. I really wish I had the skill to make the models used in both these games.
  21. There is a new version of Spintires coming out soon. It's slated to have the IHC Transtar, Oshkosh, and I believe the Scout.
  22. The designer of the Brockway "Superliner" is Bob Eckard. He is still alive and kicking in the Cortland, NY and recently donated some of his original concept drawings to the Brockway Museum. Mr. Eckard has an opinion on where Mack came up with the inspiration for the Superliner and to cut a sad story short it ain't from Allentown.
