Long day but well spent IMO. Nice sunny day & some great lookin' Brockways on Main Street in the little town where they were built. Met up with Gary Smith for a couple of hours & checked out all the trucks. For starters here's my personal Top 10.  :-)

1971 tri-axle dump


1970 heavy hauler


1976 760 TL


1976 760 TL sleeper



760 twin screw tractor


1974


1973 361 dump


1947


1953



1974 459 cabover

Those are the nicest Brockways I've seen. :mrgreen: What are the year ranges of these Brocks?
There were trucks like the Pineapple out of Denver along with Carol Smith and his big black pete w/ a KTA600, The Monfort gang (Monfort Lane) ,Cantrell out of Mo. w/his wicked 359 3408 cat and all his friends, Frank Frazer and his small bunk, big KTA 600.

Nice pics for a top 10.

I'm not sure which cab I like more, the Mack or the earlier ones, especially when they had the black tuck&roll upholstery everywhere, even on top of the dashboard IIRC.

My  brother who lives close by went over. He mentioned a group of trucks on display that belonged to an owner in New England. he wore his Harvey Mack cap and got a few stares. We went to school with people who were working there when it closed. Most of them are gone.

This is the old home place. The grey building was the barn now a restaurant and lodgind and behind it is the parking area where cars and buses park to access the ski tows on the hill which is called Virgil Mountain and is the highest hill in Cortland Co. The milk hauler used you come by every morning in his ton and half Dodge with a 12 ft stake bed and pickup the 10 gallon cans that milk was shipped in back then. A 36 Dodge school bus took us to school about 3 miles west.

My brother mentioned that there were  several Grimm units. He also went to the ATHS show at the fair grounds yesterday but he said they didn't have the Grimm trucks over there.

Your pics are a  good sample of Brockway history---great close up shots.
