or the past year-and-a-half, Vincent
Pomposelli ­ who goes by his middle
name, Jimmy ­ has worked on a spe-
cial project for Modern's Independent
Equipment Leasing Co. Jimmy retired at
the end of December, but before leaving he
completed his final project for the company,
the restoration of the RH-01, Modern
Continental's very first Dynahoe.
Quite a bit of work goes into restor-
ing a well-used construction vehicle to its
original condition. Jimmy had to essen-
tially disassemble the 1968 RH-01 and
put it back together, piece by piece. Any
broken or non-functioning parts had to
be repaired or replaced. After months of
meticulous work, the Dynahoe is now in
nearly mint condition, with almost all of
its original components intact. Some ad-
ditional touches, such as chrome teeth on
the RH-01's bucket, were then made.
Once Jimmy finished with the rebuild-
ing process, the garage's master painter,
Heidi Abare, gave the RH-01 a fresh new
coat of Dynahoe yellow and replaced all
of the decals.
The RH-01 is the third Modern Con-
tinental vehicle to be restored. It will join
the E-1, the company's first pick-up truck
(a 1963 Chevrolet) as well as the T-1,
Modern's first dump truck (a 1958 Dia-
mond T). The company plans to use the
restored vehicles for ceremonies, parades,
special events, and shows.
As for Jimmy, who spent 12 of his
32 years as a mechanic with Modern, a

Heidi Abear and Jimmy Pomposelli (pictured above) teamed
up to restore Modern's original Dynahoe, a machine now
more than 30 years old, before Jimmy retired at the end
of December. The project took over a year to complete,
and featured some additional touches ­ such as chrome
teeth on the RH-01's bucket (shown at left). The entire
Stoughton crew (below) came out to wish Jimmy a happy
and prosperous retirement.
much-deserved vacation to Aruba will
be followed by some quality rest and re-
"Jimmy has brought a great deal of
knowledge and expertise to Modern's
maintenance division," said Equipment
Manager Scottie Noyes. "He will be sorely
missed. You can't replace a guy like Jimmy
­ you just try to adjust."
The feeling, as they say, is mutual. "I'll
miss everyone at Modern," Jimmy said.
"It's been the best job I ever had."
On behalf of Modern Continental and
The Scoop, best of luck, Jimmy!
