Last one for today and it's from 'Two Hats' Gary Richards in Oz (must be early in the morning for him? Anyroadup he says: "Hi Brian, seeing the recent BLB discussion on the "Road Commode" and the general comments on that now rare beast - the US COE, the most successful global US model was the ubiquitous Mack F model....no pie needed to confirm this!! On the domestic market, the F model came in many variants in its 20 year life- from the low tare FL Western model made in the Hayward, California plant to the very versatile Interstater, with 27 different engine models from 4 engine suppliers.In Europe, the F model, (pictured above) with its locally adapted high roof, gave the power and comfort to run the tough runs, to Iran, etc. Of course, the largest model - the F900, with its ballsy 375hp Mack V8, did the big lifts.

GR continues: "And out here, the F model complemented the B model and, later the R model, in interstate applications.Here's to the most successful global COE range - the F model Mack !!"
