The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

One of a Kind Mack
Ever wonder what the next generation of Mack fire engines would have appeared had the corporation kept solvent its fire apparatus division? Here it is -- one of two prototypes that were built in 2004 (I'm told) but were never introduced to the market. A Pennsylvania volunteer fire company purchased the demo model for less than MSRP.
