    I was wondering who has the oldest truck here that is still on the road working. Picturs would be great. Has the fuel mpg increasted over the years with all the electronic crap?

    I run I90 in NY a lot and see an old B75 (I think) Mack from the mid 50s to mid 60s now and then. Its black has an early KW 60 inch aerodyne bunk on it and is streched out to about 300 inch wheel base. It has big 24.5 rubber and I think its pulling a spread axle refer. Its probibly not the oldest out their but its a sweet old truck thats sitll gettin it done.

    Well, in Ca. around Fresno, for instance, you'll see a lot of 60's models that belong to farmers that haul hay or their produce pretty much local. I once worked for a bottom dump outfit in Fontana that bought 6 sets of bottom dumps from a farmer in Stockton that had them sitting in his field for years. They were in good shape and were 40 years old!

    Yes it is an M .
    It is the third Marmon I have owned in the last 15 years. I still have a 1990 model sitting at home but I have ran the 97 model for the last 8 years.
