i towed many trucks with the blue mack with the atlas that was one of the first trucks with an undereach in this aera ralph but an add on nrc on the back on a side note can anyone name the beacons.

Those were made by Mars. There beacons all had the high plastic chrome look bases, some had split lens so you could change colors. I think the ones on the Mack are their Aurora Borialis style.

Yeah, that Mack belonging to Ralph Gates was the envy of a lot of people in this area at the time, super clean truck.

all great trucks, really like that 5ton 6x6 with the 850 on , and ray harris rotator has neat winch set up and spade, how things have changed but all of these units could still get the job done in the right hands.

Very cool pictures I love the way every truck was unique in its own way. I could look at those pictures over and over and never get board of them. Thanks for posting them.
