The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by the people who vote for a living.

The government can only "give" someone what they first take from another.

Rare for sure. JIM H  or Rich P will probably remember  old timer who lived in Blackstone MA had one on his property.  Forgot his name but nice old boy.  Last saw him at Macungie 3+ years ago.  Has since passed on and family cleaned up property.  In addition to the D had a bunch of AC's in various stages.

That was Ken Robinson of Blackstone who passed away in 2013.  Here is his D-42 when it was being sold at the Remillard auction in 2017.  Jeff Remillard had previously purchased the D when an auction was held to settle the estate of Mr. Robinson.

It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.

I remember seeing the one in Blackstone, MA; not up close but in the yard with the other Macks. At least one "D" model was used as a fire truck. According to John Malecky, 

in his book, "Mack Tilt Cab Fire Apparatus", a 1956 "D" model was built for Esso as an airport fuel tanker and was later converted into a foam carrier at Esso's Bayway Refinery in

Linden, NJ. In 1978 it was donated to the Readington Fire Company who used it until 1986.

Here is the D model from behind the mack museum.  It is looking for a home.  There is a restored D model inside that is not.  John Chalmers also has one that is pretty rough.  Mike.

The deteriorating condition of that former Mack fleet MH daycab is a sin.

If I'm not mistaken it was on here and was on long term loan to them. Don't exactly recall and to many MH posts to look through.
