###### I love bull noses. I give kuddos to those who can pull off integrating paint like that.

L'express du midi is a division of a trucking company called Transport Audec. They are headquartered in Ste-Catherine, a town near Montreal, Quebec. I took pictures of these trucks at a car and truck shown in their hometown. They have a fleet of W900s, T800s and newly at least one T660. They all are well dressed up as they wear the same paint scheme, either red and silver or blue and white. They are all equiped with polished aluminum wheels, fuel tanks and whatever can be polished... Just is. Even their trailers are as detailed as the trucks, so basically the trucks you see in these pictures represent the fleet. Most of the Audec fleet is silver and red and specializes in pulling bulk fluids in tankers, the Express being mostly blue and white specializing in solid freight including wood products mostly on flatbeds and tarped B-trains. Quite a striking fleet to look at and some of the best looking W900L's on the road. Inky posted their internet site that pretty much details it.

Too bad you don't get to see the "American Trucker" TV show, there was one episode with a trucker who drove his Bullnose Kenworth for 5 million miles without a single accident! They showed the inside of the cab as well as the outside of the truck. There might be something on their internet site though... It's either on episode 1 with the Movin on' and the BJ and the Bear KW's or episode 11 with the all american truck show... Have a look. http://www.speedtv.c...erican-trucker/
