Here’s a pic of the new trucks.  The Pete in it’s Stark stripes is a year old that we spec’d out, the KW we recently bought and it’s a year old, and the the other Pete is spec’d identical to the striped Pete except they moved tank placement on it.   Look at how low the mirrors are on the KW compared to the Petes.  I’ve used both in the last couple weeks and cannot get used to the mirrors on the KW. I also don’t  understand Pete mounting the CB antennas on the roof. Doing what we do they keep getting whacked. .

And those roof mount antennas are usually detrimental to the roof skin too. I've patched several over the years and the antennas have been relocated.

I certainly remember Edmier and their yard on Cicero av. I believe around 16th st. and at the Ship and Sanitary canal, also remember Celli and all of the retired B models in that yard along the Tri-State tollway I think they finally got moved out when Ohare airport (if I remember correctly) took that piece of land. I hauled for Celli a short time back around '96 with my '89 R688ST. Celli was a Mack dealership for parts/ service and leasing but i don't think they sold trucks, but i could be mistaken.

Great pics fond memories

Prowrench: Do a search for Celli in the search section and you will have some great reading material. 57bcr on this website knew Mr. celli as a friend. As a kid growing up in Illinois Celli dumps turned me into the truck nut I am today.
