New member question
 
Hi all, got a question for you. Are Mack busses rare? Not sure the year but I would think fourties. Has a big flathead straight six in it. Other than that I don't know much, it's in a wooded area, has sat for a long time and was surrounded by bees. Owner wants it gone. I restore cars part time so the project thing is less scary but still very intimidating

Ya...the old Macks are pretty darned rare. Would love to see a pic if you can get one, sounds way cool.

Could be a "honey" of a find. Pics, pics, pics!

I will try and get back there next week, my phone died and I was unable to get pics. Looking online I found some b series Macks, but they were all newer models.

I love Macks.
Yeah, its rare to see an old Mack bus. Post up some pics. Hope to see you save the old girl.

The green woody has the closest body type, it then had prolly a twenty five foot or more school bus body on it.

You'd better jump on that before someone else does, that is if there's enough left to actually work with.

Definitely complete, but also sat for a long time. It's gotta be pretty darn unusual because I can't find a photo of another one on the Internet. I appreciate the comments and will keep you all posted.

Get it out of there and clean it up. Even if you don't want to rebuild it, someone will want to rebuild it and you'd probably get a decent finder's fee.
