Mack DM800

This was a build that I completed in about 2 weeks. Yes I know a miracle for me. I actually started it the same day that I finished the Peterbilt 359M. I felt inspired and have been planning to build the DM so I got straight on to it. A very enjoyable build, despite that fact that it fought me all the way. Yes I was pleased with the result. I would like to build one of those beam support or bridge trailers to go with it. Not sure what the correct term for them is.

Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking.

This looks great. I'm not sure what the correct term for this style of trucks is, but I like the rugged looks. All function and durability, looking pretty never crossed the designers mind.

That is one tough looking truck. I cant believe you did this in two weeks :blink: Very nicely done.

I sure wouldn't want to see this in my rear view mirror , more menacing then a rust colored Pete !

Thanks for all the great comments. I like the utility hard working appearance of trucks like this. To me lots of chrome does not look right on a vehicle like this.

Thanks Again!

Dave,

The headache rack is scratch built, it's based on the Kenworth Alaskan Hauler one.

Rear views as requested.

That's a great looking truck....I really like the tires.....Very well done.....That rack on the back looks great.....I think this would look great as one of those haulers, as well....Shouldn't be too hard to build....I think the toughest part would be to build the beam.....

Someday I will restore/rebuild mine to look similar like yours.

I have built it with the 1976 stars and stripes decoration and much too much chrome...
