Why is there no longer a Mack DM? Can you really spec out a Granite as a heavy duty workhorse? I guess the answer depends on what the Volvo overlords are preaching that day. I specifically went to the Alex Lyon summer auction this past July to take a look at this 1988 DM with Weldbuilt wrecker. I have no proof but I believe that this truck came from one of the many three letter acronym NYC government agencies that love buying heavy spec’d trucks and then cutting them loose with plenty of life left on the clock. Once part of the Village Truck Sales fleet this old bulldog and it’s RD brother were sent packing and offered up to new homes yet again. My money tree has yet to bloom so I had to pass on these two. Maybe next season.
Photo evidence for future generations that real trucks once existed.
