That's one place you can never get tired of. The trucks are super cool and so is the sign. Thanks for sharing.

True, I've been 5 or 6 times now, and I'd go back tomorrow. By the way, the barbecue there is really good too.

What model is that blue and white cab over? It appears to be the missing link between the H model and G model to me. 

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.

That is a Mack W-71 built between 1953-1958.

So was that model the start of the end for H models?

Anyone have "brochure" for that W71? Reminds me a good bit of the old Bullnose Kenworths.

It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.

The F Model was purchased and restored by Harry Muschlegel (the founder of Jevic and New Century Transportation) Back when I worked in Jevic's Willingboro Shop, he used to pay a few of us to stay after our shifts and work on his some of his trucks. I have some sandblasting time on the frame of that F-Model which is painted in Jevic's original paint scheme. And despite popular interwebz folklore, it was never part of the Jevic Fleet. There were three F-Models but that was not one of them.

I’m pretty sure that truck used to belong to Dr. Bill

Yes, same truck. They have his PIE Freightliner tanker and the GMC tanker that he was still working on in his video there too.

Was that black snubnose with the new Dixie decal on the door the w-71? 

Happy New Year Billy!

The Mack W-71 is blue with the white stripe that says Western Gillette on the door.  The truck with New Dixie on the door is an E model Mack COE such as a model EHU.

Tom, thank you for posting the beauties!

I saw that B-model parked outside at the back yard behind the main museum building when visited the place in 2018. But EHU is almost new to me and seems extremely rare being E-cabover and integral sleeper at the same time. Looks nicely done from what I can see on the picture.

Happy New Year to you and Zina!
