Driving a Mack is like having an aunt in a brothel, nothing too bad but nothing to go around talking about.

One of my buddies that drove Mack trucks back in the 50's said he had to keep an extra blanket in the bunk and get it out at every mountain to cover the dog's eyes so he couldn't see the hill otherwise he would lie down.

Hear about the Mack driver who lost his air compressor and had no brakes. This was before the advent of emergency brakes that come on below 60 PSI! The fellow was coming down a long mountain grade, lost air and was flying down the hill, only to see a school bus load of kids stopped at the bottom! He looks out across the hood and the ol" bulldog is turned around with his front paws covering his eyes and in desperation(forgetting he"s got no air), the driver yanks down on the air horn cord. He"s going so fast that the air backs up through the horn and the lines to the air tanks and he"s able to stop the truck within mere feet of the bus!!

Speed kills, Drive a Mack and you'll live forever.

You know why there's a bulldog on the hood?
So one a$$ can look at another

Here is a 20 ton Mack crane currently on Gumtree.

Crane starts runs drives and lifts. Top speed is about 80km/h as long as the driver has popeyes muscles, supermans balls and can handle the heat noise and frightened looks from ordinary road users. Automatic drivers and other sissies need not apply.

In other words Lang, are you saying that the above would need a DRIVER and not a modern day steering wheel attendant? Dave

It would appear so Dave.

Here are some great photos currently for sale on Ebay. I think whoever stole them knows nothing about them as the captions are certainly incorrect. The train should be more like 1916 and both "launch" photos are obviously old working trucks.

There is a 4 page article on these Aussie built Mack MIR's in the latest edition, March/April 2019, of the ATCA Double Clutch magazine.. Got mine about 2 weeks ago, no idea how long it takes the slow boat to get Down Under??? I am not computer savvy enough to know how to scan and post?? Maybe Swishy can help??
