The only ones who can make this active again is "US".
We have to use it.
I don't Facebook either , I check here almost daily.
Yes , it is sad... But the only way to bring back life is more usage.

I have some updates on things to post.

Will do my part to help.

It's a shame that Facebook took the activity from this site. I also check this site daily. Too bad that those responsible for the site maintenance and updates follow Facebook as well. There is far more history of our shows and the building of the museum stored here than anywhere else, as well as our gift shop is accessed here.

It isnt just this forum, Facebook has put a killing on all of them. I think there are 4 or even 5 different Brockway related groups on facebook right now, so there is a ton to look at. Many of these people on the facebook groups, im certain were never members here. Facebook is such a big thing these days, and people are always on it, and easily able to find the truck related pages. The downturn of this site makes me sad as well, but as long as facebook is big, this site and others like it will not be. I know its not what some want to hear, but its just how its gonna be. No saying I like it, but people are glued to their phones, checking facebook, not message boards.

I am one of those that left here, but not because of Facebook. I registered again to add a few thoughts. First, this site and some of the people here are responsible for my small Brockway collection. I watched the Museum start, and got help in repairs, and parts. I check here daily. It is for the preservation of Brockway and not a social thing- for the most part. So here I go again. Hope to post updates of my trucks' progress and lack of over the next while. Recognize these 2?

This site is usually slow during the winter season when a lot of the 'Puppies' are in outside kennels and the weather makes it difficult to work on them.

Thank you. We are up to 9 now, with several other makes that followed us home. One more title to get squared away. I will be happy to get the last ones "self mobile" sometime. They are safe. Here is another shot of a familiar face...

index.php Not sure if that will work. (did not so type in 359 auction in the search) I found it listed here, located in Indianapolis back in 2010. It is now in southwest VA. Raining today so no hay down...

The look of the 359 with flotation tires on the steer axle is my favorite. There is no dog out there as tough as a Huskie!!

Second....it wasn't until you posted the truck photos that it "clicked" and you asked about the horses.

Welcome back my friend!! :D

I don't get by your place traveling to schools like I did before.
They now have me going on the far east coast of your state.

I will drop you a note (old school style)...I still have your address.

Great to see you back Mr. Second! As you know I love the Hawkins truck, with the Gar Wood Boston flaps!
