Recommended Posts

Good looking ride clayton! I had a truck on a dedicated wood chip haul, about a 100 mi. round trip. Company I was leased to wanted us to haul chips from monticello to bogaloosa la. one yr. It was an 11 hr. round trip, 2 lane road, had to cross 4 permanent scales, lumber yard foreman said we could make 2 loads a day! ! stayed local and did my regular 5 load a day thing!

Saw this one yesterday at Beak & Skiff Apple Orchards in Lafayette, NY.  It has a 1949 Oregon license plate on it, but it doesn't look like a 1949 Ford to me (but that do I know).

I saw these at a truck show Saturday! The last one is my youngest son sitting in the driver seat of the Rubber Duck.

I saw these during the Woodward run up in Pontiac MI last month. Kinda cool to see them in person. Be cool to have a model of this Western Star, maybe in the future.

Saw these 2 last week on my to Vegas. I was loaded (80000 lbs) climbin a hill, they were light or empty.

Took a couple pics of some new trucks at Peterbilt on Monday last week. The mint green and yellow trucks are sister trucks. The VINs are in sequence. They both have 500 horse Cummins with 18 speeds. The cream and brown truck has a 500 Cummins and a 13 speed with air ride Reyco and no axle blocks on the steer. I sat in the yellow truck. It is a really nice truck. Comfy leather seats and a HOOD!

Interesting COE.  Peterbilt, maybe?  Interesting load.

I pass by this lot every day on my way to and from work. Not sure of the name of the company as I never see a sign, but they must specialize in unusual cars and trucks.  The first pics have some cool classics on. The next ones have a special load that must have come out of Texas (Texas plates on the Mustang).
