  1. what a shame, I used to love cracking open a beer and spending hours on that site on a snowy or rainy night.
  2. wow! a blast from the past. my dad hauled a lot of beer out of that brewery back in the early 70s. some times in the summer I would ride with him...that brewery and I think it was piels real draft in the Bronx also we would go...back then you would still see some of them old white 3000s running around the city.
  3. not by any of the major model companys but there is an after market resin 1/25 scale b model and other mack models by a resin castor called aitm, American industrial truck models and he's right in your homestate of nj. you'll have to by a mack r600 or dm 600 kit for a donor kit. he also sells engines trans, tires amd much more...check him out, www.aitruckmodels.com
  4. all depends on what the customer would have ordered...freightliner came with just about any suspension airride, reyco, Hendricks. and others in the 70's..i hope this helps you.
  5. I see some members building these on here so I thought I would throw some pics up in case someone needs a reference pic.i remember building this kit back in the day and one of the most confusing things about this kit for me was how the interior engine cover mounted so I included a pic of that as well just in case someone else has the same problem. we still run a couple of them in our fleet .they used to be cement mixers then were converted into water trucks. if anymore pics are needed of a certain part just let me know.
  6. found this one sitting in a yard at the Philadelphia naval base.

  8. edge comb steel actually has one of these stainless steel autocars parked out front of their steel mill for display.
  9. back in '89 I drove a international 4200 with a 318 DD/ 10spd. hauling steel coils with it out of US steel in fearless hills pa. I remember the owner of the truck always telling me to keep it wound up tight and run it like your mad at it. she would use about a gallon of oil every 4 days. I always thought because they were 2 stroke engines that they were just vibrating parts on the engine loose. I also remember the air compressor leaked a lot of oil on that truck. but I think Sam is right a 2 stroke engine would build up a lot of crankcase pressure and that would definitely cause leaks.
  10. let me see if I could remember, just a bear was a local or county cop. and a full grown bear was a state trooper. a kojak with a Kodak was a bear with radar. if we were check'n out seat covers we were looking at the pretty girls passing us. buster brown was a ups truck, wow clayton your bringing back a lot of memories!.. keep the shinny side up and the greasy side down 3's to ya we gone!
  11. thanks gator. same to you and everyone here!
  12. Hello Michael. I too still use the cb when I'm in my big truck, like clayton said it's mostly to communicate with the asphalt plants or the loaders down in the quarries or if I'm on the lowbed to find out where they want their machines. as far as finding out where the troopers are. well the CDL put an end to my hammer down days. and the last 17 years I've been getting paid by the hour so when I'm in the big truck I'm not looking to go very fast anyways LOL! but back in the day when I was traveling in my 4 wheeler or on the 2 wheeler. I would always try to run with the greyhound stagecoaches. they were always hammer down and always seemed to know where the speed traps were.. I still always get the mile marker # where the picture taker or the speed trap is so I could warn others. I do miss the cool handles we had and the crazy cb lingo we used.
