would have liked to have been there  but spent my day pulling the motor out of my zero turn . damn thing is leaking oil out the side at about a quart an hour. looks like the pan gasket blew a hole right behind the filter base . this is going to turn into a project for sure :pat:

lots of nice truck there.amazes me that I know I walked and walked and walked and then someone posts a pic of a truck I never seen at the show. I have a gabbing problem when I walk around..... left my wife at the truck and came back a few times and hour or two later only to tell her I was just twenty feet away...….

Same here.   We walked forever and then watching the parade leave we see truck we never saw.

I agree about missing some trucks at Macungie. I walked from Thursday evening till noon Saturday and also see pics of trucks I never saw. Carl, think you are still just going to drive the H a little bit after it is finished? I figure this first trip to Macungie just blew that idea! We'll be racing to see who gets there first. FYI - 460 miles back (including back country to avoid the jam up on I-78 west bound), made it in 7 hours 50 minutes. Not bad for old man in an old truck. There was more than one person wondered what blew past in the hammer lane!

Nice pics. I love that Brockway cabover.

 

Oh and the first pic of the glider.....that is a DM800. It has the offset cab. Man that would be cool to build now.

I finally made it to Macungie for the first time, what a great show! Some really beautiful trucks here. Here's an RD800 glider kit, I'll bet there was a lot of salivating over this one.

 It is now about 15 miles from my house where it will "morph" into a tandem and go back to work!  Merc is a talented guy.

I have a question about that DM800 glider ,does any know if it is a truck with the rears removed or an acutal  nos unbuilt glider?

There were 2 crew cab Superdogs at the show; this one was very well done.

This is the best B model pickup I've ever seen, the proportions are just right. I've seen some goofy looking conversions before; this one is top-notch.

Great pictures. That H model had old Montana plates on the passenger side of the front bumper.

This is one of my favorite trucks at the show...everything on it was immaculate. The orange and black paint is a great combination.

And this same family had another B there that they did that was equally as nice.

actual glider I believe. there wasn't a single hole drilled in the frame behind the cab. would almost be a shame to build it now. should go into the Mack Museum so Volvo can see ''what use to be done''

Well on the positive side the beautiful DM-800 single axle dump parked on front row (gray/blue/black) is Merc's most recent job.  This glider will be done the right way for sure.

On the way home I was running with that maroon GMC Cannonball with a 4-71 or 6-71 and straight pipes...he was moving right along for an old truck. Did you take the PA turnpike? Those tunnels look like they would be hairy for an old truck.
