Eazor Express Mack B-67
« on: May 12, 2009, 07:07:17 AM »
I found this gem of common carrier history last Sunday at Watts Mack in New Alexandria, Pa.  Eazor, based in Pittsburgh, ran these and MB Macks for P & D rigs well into the '70's, but I never got any pictures of them.

In a somewhat odd coincidence, I saw two Eazor P&D trailers later that day in a field off of I-70, the outer one with the Eazor placard intact, which is extremely rare.  I didn't go back for them, should have.  Jim (Boll Weevil), your mission, should you choose to accept it....maybe you can run over some day, they were about a mile east of the Kamerer exit, 32?, (don't know if I spelled that right) along a local road that paralleled the interstate.

Check out this thread if you haven't seen it.  All those trucks used to be crammed in behind the shop, but sometime in the last year they moved them across the road.

Watts Mack pretty much runs bigmacktrucks.com. It was founded by Barry the guy in charge of the parts dept. They have some pretty neat stuff in that bone yard.

Sometime this week I'll try to jump off at Kammerererer and run the 2 lane to Bentleyville. I can't see them from the eastbound side and it's dark when I'm heading west. :|

They must have been moved. I ran that stretch as well as the one from Dunningsville to Kammerer and couldn't find them. I even took time to slow down and try to look into some of the fields, but no luck. :roll:
