Just like to say hi. I am in New York and come from a family of truckers. My family use to have a fleet of Brockways in Cold Spring. I am not in a hurry but will be starting to look for a project to do. Either a 359 Brockway with a 318 in or a R700 Mack. Thank you all for your time

5 years ago I bought one of your V12 Brockway tractors. It's a 1972 Serial #77721 and it was owned and driven by Jack Pawson of Hopewell Junction. I've been sinking money into it ever since and hopefully will get it done next year. Any pictures or history you might have would be appreciated. Everything I know about this truck has been told to me by the Whalen Brothers of Armenia, NY. Thanks, Doug Richardson, 413-665-4735

the truck number was #79. I was a kid when my grandfather sold the all the trucks. I do remember when Jackie put the air ride under the truck I help sand blast the frame for it and Jackie and my father put it on. Ronnie's truck was #71 which was my uncle's truck new.

Hi Bill and Welcome, I met your grandfather in 1989 just after he moved upstate, what ever happened to the Huskie Pup? You will find the more you talk to people that the Allen Coal trucks are pretty famous. Do you remember Fred Lucetta?
