Paul, That had 1300x20 tires. Never seen them before.

Miller tire in Ohio makes them, Lot of mid 30's trucks ran them along with the 8.00 x 40 for my AC., Paul

I like how they cut Mack into that diomond plate. Also on that little green R model, you see the picture of it on the right side, and the half flaps with the bulldogs on them, where can I get those?

The green, single axle R model reminds me of the hundreds of those I had seen as a kid. Those are my favorite finds at truck shows.

Wow! What a great show. My wife flew up to Vermont and forced her parents, who are in their 80's, to come down and my daughter forced her husband to come up from Ct. Know what, they all had a great time. We looked at trucks and took a million pics,and when the old folks got tired they'd go back to the hall and sit for a spell, someone would come along and strike up a conversation, and before they knew it,they came away with a bunch of new friends.I had to crawl under the beautiful over restored AC model in the hall to figure out why it needed air tanks for mechanical brakes. I can imagine what a thrill it must have been to try and stop with a full load. Saturday I grabbed a raincoat and umbrella and went it alone, sloshing through the mud to get one last look at the Macks, Autocars, and Brockways. Couldn't believe that no one brought a U-model,that should give Vinny some incentive to get his on the road.Thanks to whoever brought Peter J's H Model, which I kept going back to and caught myself just standing in front of it, studying the details, RIP Peter J,your effort is appreciated.The H-63 that I purchased from Mr. Turpin is having the engine replaced by his son Matt. After that it will come home for paint and interior,and some of the details that Peter J already thought through will now be easier for me to accomplish without experimenting. I drove up from Atlanta on thursday and drove back sunday, pulled in the driveway at 1 am monday morning, so wired from vivarin that it was 4am before I went to sleep. Thanks to all of you for making the show such a success by being who you are, and you are good people. Tim

Red Rover:

Eddie Lucast in Conn now has possesion of Peter J's H model so it is in good hands. Feel free to contact him if you need pictures of a certain detail.

Mackniac:

The Associated Transport Brown is in NC and he shows it at local chapter shows. Was at Lincolnton NC last year.

Vinny,

I got to drive that Green and Black R at the show as he had parked it for pictures and went to get his Superliner so they asked me to move it so they could photo the next truck. Was very nice i could get used to that Mack.

DMO has Cummins in both the LTL and the LTH.

The LTL had a Hall Scott in it when he bought it. It now has a supercharged Cummins in it as it was built brand new from Mack.

The Hall Scott engine was put into a third LTL that he bought from Jack Frost. He then sold that truck to a fellow in Australia.
