What cool trucks (rigs or pick ups) have you seen lately?

Recommended Posts

That sounds a lot better than my first thought, which was that what was dumped from those belly dumpers was going to be rolled! :lol:

My brother (a truck driver) was behind this the other day in Indiana. I guess this is the Army's version of the Yosemite Sam "Back Off" mud flaps! :lol:

Nothing like a little artillery to clear traffic! :lol:

Nice looking Peterbilt.

I'm heading out to LA this weekend, so I'm hoping to see some trucks out there that I usually don't see here in Central New York.

The weekend may be skim pickins for cool trucks. I'm sure you'll see some stuff that's not seen on the east coast. Hope LA treats you ok Jim.

From what I was told today, it seems as though things may be picking up. I'm hoping things are. I'm not holding my breath though. One of our big customers is making material again. The guy that operates the loader there was on vacation for 3 weeks.

Ok, so does this count:

I have no idea what it is (yes, I know it's an aircraft refueling truck, but I don't know who makes it).  I took this photo from the window of my flight from Syracuse, NY, last Friday when we pulled up to our gate at Newark Liberty International Airport.  I believe it is refueling a United Express Embraer ERJ-145 (similar to the one I flew on).

I think it would fill the shelf.  To much scratch building for me, too.

Looks like a Peterbilt 320. I spent a lot of time at airports working FIFO jobs so I've seen lots of funky airport equipment. Never saw a fuel truck that big, though.

I might be a Peterbilt 320.  Could be a Mack for all I could tell.  They were moving around pretty good.  It even has a twin steer.

I Googled the company. I can only find Freightliners, the cabs are different. But, they have some big fuel trucks.

Saw this 367 drill rig on a delivery yesterday. The workers said it's brand new. It only has 170 hours on it.

Humboldt Bay fire district pulled out the Hazmat truck today. Looks like an old C900 Ford. They said it still runs like a champ.

A cool truck I saw at Turner's Auto Wrecking in Fresno CA a little over a month ago.

Kenworth K125 with torsion bar suspension and DD 8V-71 just sitting there in one of the scrap yards.

I wasn't able to a pic because I was driving, and not sure if a pic taken from my dash cam would have came out well if I could have stopped it at the right time in the video and screenshot it (and it doesn't help I left the dash cam in the truck :rolleyes:), but I was shocked to see a Ford F350 dually pulling a gooseneck, and on the gooseneck was an old dual drive Freightliner cabover! :o When I first seen it, I actually thought the Freightliner was following (and way too close I might add :lol:) the dually, it wasn't until everything got closer to me that I could see the trailer and that the Freightliner was on the deck. Of course, the first thing that came to mind: COOL IDEA FOR A BUILD! :lol:

I do enjoy a yellow Pete.

That's an old Cherokee Freight Lines truck. I'm sure being from Northern Ca you know who I'm talkin about.
