Looks like you worked too much that week so kept the camera up side down making the first shot.

I agree with Tim, your R is one of my favorits from all others I've ever seen on the net.

Wish you a long while before you feel a need to swap it with something newer.

5.8 MPG pretty darn good I would have thought confirms what I have always said these new trucks are no better than a well maintained coolpowered Mack that has electronic problems

I am like a stuck record arent I

Take nothing away from these newer trucks, but it does show how fantastic the old Macks are!

My dad ran an old '76 cab over kenny, with an 892 in it. He sold that truck in 95, and bought a '91 valueliner with an e7. The money he saved on maintenance and fuel paid for his Mack (4 years old at the time)! It was a free truck he kept telling me.

Mack rules!

Only ever differs if iam running at 3500 mm wide and high into strong head winds that knocks it down a bit but saying that all the trucks on the trip them days sufferpost-7759-0-40884000-1442488702_thumb.jppost-7759-0-79284700-1442488773_thumb.jp
