Now you made me wonder if I have some old pics of my grandpa driving for A&P stores. I don't even know where the box of old pics went, but I'll look for em.

I saw a restored B model on the interstate last summer pulling a toy hauler . Would be nice to have one just to play with.

My Dad was a mechanic on those trucks for about 35 years. Worked for ACME Markets and was at the Mack truck parts dept. every day. Used to take me in with him on Saturdays when he worked on them.

INFO on Foxfire.........He had shoulder surgery on thursday, and is expected to be down about 6 months rehabing.

Thank you for the update on Bryan, Marty.  

Here's the R700 he drove for over 10 years for a local coal company.  
This trailer had a load of beltline from Japan.  He did everything from haul a backhoe
from one job to another to dumping a load of coal into a ship in NY.
This pic is from 1977.
BTW, the B Model was green as well.
