That T-600 did have a nice interior in it. Quite a few driver amenities compared to his earlier trucks. The last truck he drove, before he retired, was about a '94 W-900L. Forest Green Metallic with the aerodyne bunk. I can't find any pictures of that one, either. Unfortunately, this is the only picture I have of the T600.

The T-600's were still a fairly new design when J-trans started leasing them...

What I don't have any pictures of is the black K-123 that Dad drove after he left Cates and went to work for J-Trans... It won't be a difficult one to replicate, though... Black cab, black steel drive wheels and aluminum steers...

SO THAT'S why I hung on to that spare F-1 cab... I've never seen these before, Chuck. Thanks for sharing them!

Ok, fellers! Thanks to a little help from Dynomight and Kilrathy10, I am now able to post pictures again. It was as simple as 'flipping a switch...'

I mentioned earlier that I wanted to build an R Model pulling a Pabst Blue Ribbon billboard trailer as a memorial for my Dad who passed away back in September.
This is the Mack that I want to build. Dad drove it for several years, back in the '80's. He mostly ran the East Coast, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York City and such...

That's a young me hanging off the side of the truck...
I also just noticed the black, electrical tape X's on the headlights... Evidently, it had been foggy when he was coming home. He would do that to cut the light beam and help it penetrate the fog better. I've actually used that trick and, believe it or not, it makes a noticeable difference!

They're not pictured but I remember this truck having grey painted, two-hole steel drive wheels... I should remember that because every weekend that it was warm enough, I was washing this truck for Dad on Saturday morning...

Very nice! I have one of these and a 1909 Thomas Flyer that I really need to build... I'm with you, I love the early 20th Century 'Brass Era' autos.
