Note that Volvo is replacing a knowledgeable Mack veteran with a Latin and English instructor.

Apparently, no younger ex-Mack people (the Lehigh Valley has many) want to work for Volvo.

Don performed the job so well, in the footsteps of my dear late friend Colin Chisholm, because he had an intimate knowledge of Mack Trucks from years of service.

With all due respect to Mr. Kitsock, the simple fact that he never worked for (within) the company for any period of time makes him completely unqualified for the position.

At least he has old truck and museum experience and I'm sure will grow into the position. I'm sure Don had some input on his successor. Paul

I was looking at all the paper work I received from him on my 6 AC,s my B mixer and my R, plus a few reams on the Turbines. Wish those of us here whom he helped could give him something from the BMT Members as thanks. Paul
