With the exception of the first month of our existence, we have never had less than 200 "hits" (visits to the site) per week. Until NOW! 190 last week and that was with people home for Christmas. Our best was nearly 900. Come on everyone, let's use the board like we should. Post some pictures, ask some questions! This discussion page is one of the best things we have to bring Brockway together.

1958 Edsel ?? Either that or the Boston Strangler Dump Truck.

I've had some difficulty getting on the board lately but wanted to see if anyone else had problems before mentioning it. Could just be my server.

No doubt about it - 527 series. Note placement of gauges in dash. Thanks for posting Glen!

We used the 761 for about two months and had next to zero problems.Really fun to drive. I got it home yesterday and rinsed it off for winter.

Glen, You've acquired so many trucks I don't know what you have. Let's see, three piece windshield, no dog house, air brakes. Obviously a steel cab! I'll pass.

Okay I'll take a shot. That's a 1958 257 that's at someone named Walker's? I remember you Emailing me the pictures, that thing is a cool old truck.

I haven't been working on Brockways lately, but I can put together some threads of the "off topic" stuff I've been working on. Finished the wheel horse this summer and have been working my butt off on my 82 Chevy trying to get it road-worthy.

I remembered the interior of that mixer from when it was posted on here for sale. What's the outside of that 257 look like? Or is that the one you posted a while back for sale that Walker's have?

Glen, Don't go filling up that new pole barn with your own stuff! That's just selfish! :-)

Here are a couple more of the cab interior. I installed the headliner and back panel upholstery today.

So do I! There is still quite a bit to be done yet. It's taken 6 years to get to this point from a bare frame so I only have about 7 months if I'm going to make the 100th anniversary.

Doug...

I just walked out in the garage to start working on my Dad's 361 and saw your pics... Wow, that looks great! Really looking forward to more progress pics! I really like the pic of the dash hanging from above... Thanks for posting the pics! (and dockmen027 too!)

Tom
