Autocar Mondays – Bad Brakes

All the way back in October of 2020 I stopped at the Golden Arches in Fulton, NY. This is a great location due to its proximity to Fulton Spring. While I was waiting in line I was able to drool over this slightly wrecked Autocar.

I would find out later on FB that the driver lost his brakes while heading downhill forcing him to nose into a pile of gravel.

Thankfully everyone was Ok. And, as you can see from these photos taken by TractorChasers on Instagram the truck has been rebuilt.

As fate would have it I was on my way to Oswego today when i saw this very truck on a lowboy heading south! Small world!

Make sure to give TractorChasers on IG a follow!

    Are you sure it’s the same truck Eric? It’s very similar for sure, but a number of details jump out at me as different – classic bubble gum type light on the cab, Mack mirror, diamond plate battery box cover, black hydraulic tank, headlights mounted higher, cab shield brace removed, marker light on fender…

      Hmm, some good points there but I still think it’s the same truck. Maybe they took the accident repairs as a chance to change some things around. It was at the shop for over 6 months.
