Hope it does get restored or at least some really good preservation.  Ed seems to stay busy with his sand piles and track.

I'm not on L.I. that  much since my wife died but his yard is about a half mile or so from my Suffolk yard.Always used to have some interesting project there. Never saw his B move either.   Paul

I would hope so since it is one of one, but it has not been touched since at least 2009. It just sits in the front against the fence.          

It now resides at Joseph's and is For Sale.

These 2 beauties belong to Jerry Howard. The picture of the black truck was taken at Macungie.

Jerry has an impressive collection and he's a great guy. He hauled my '58 H67 from Colorado to my house in Ohio.

Sawmill Trucking NYC 1968

Paul,

And who was Sawmill?  I always thought somehow they were involved with Gerosa?  In any case, amazing what used to get hauled around on 5 axles in the old days.

Can't tell by the pic, but I bet that trailer has more than 8 tires on it, probably 8 on each axle.    terry:MackLogo:

No doubt-I'm just referring to the "heavy haul" tractors of today-usually a triaxle tractor, triaxle trailer (with probably 8 wheels per) and maybe a jeep-depending on how much money the customer has or how tough the ruling jurisdiction is.

They were inter mingled at one time. Mostly from the Black Caddy crowd in Brooklyn.
