The gray truck is a ford l9000. the owner is who gave me my start in a r model. . He now has a ch,Pete, and fords.

He put a new cab on The valueliner 3-4 years back. Bought a complete new Cab fron N.I.M with basic the interior. heard it was one of the few R cabs mack had left in stock. I bought his old western interior before he scrapped his old rusted cab. Truck has a 300+ think a 13 speed with camelback spoke rears, solid mount cab.

Sweet. Ive got cousins in the Chicago area. Been there a couple times. I see alota Union Pacific trains out where they live, in Geneva IL. In their neighborhood, in the back I found an old DM block truck with a fence around it, busted out glass. I got in there though, haha, took a buncha picture, I'll have to scan them though because this was before I had a digital camera. Mighta been 09'.

A rare "western series" Macungie-built RD (a Value-Liner replacement).

This truck had the normal RD grille when I got it 8+ years ago. I added that grille and bumper to get that "Western" look. -Brad

To be honest I saw more Mack's around NYC than Chicago. We still have lots of new Mack's but NYC had more older and heavy Mack's.

Thread is called Chicago R Models not Chicago U models. :)

Yeah they learned faster then the N.E. guys. Leaners turn to Flippers :whistling: Or they don't have the proper counter weight to keep it anchored
