Thanks to everyone who liked the photo!

Back in 1974 when these Brockways were new, they were considered the Kings of the hills in horsepower, hauling aggregates to metro NYC and surrounding areas from the Hudson Valley. The gold Brockway on the left is a H360TL powered by a Cat 1693TA 425 hp, while the red Brockway is a U360TL with a 12V71 Detroit Diesel set at 430 hp from the factory.

Hearing many of the stories from back in the day from those who drove these models, usually loaded overweight, in a drag race from traffic light to traffic light, the V12 DD had more acceleration, but when they came to the mountains, the 1693's would pull right away. Too bad they didn't have utube back then......

John,
   You are reminiscing about a time that many on the Forum can't even imagine, let alone relate too. I guess we are getting old.......... :-\

A worthy winner indeed, Congrats buddy! Some of us never get to see two of those, nevermind in a shop with the hood up. Very Cool.

The Picture of the Year contest consisted of the monthly winners from 2015, so all you have to do is enter a pic in the monthly contests for this year, an if you win you will automatically be entered in the PotY for 2016. ;)
