Title: Patriotic fleet trucks - Hirschbach and Bay & Bay
Post by: norseman on November 27, 2007, 09:38:21 AM
This Hirschbach (out of So. Sioux City, NE) Volvo VN780 I found at Iowa 80 on the way back to Chicago. It appears to be a regular fleet truck with the exception of the patriotic murals and a bit of chrome and lights. Looks very sharp, IMO.

And this Bay & Bay Transfer "Spirot of America" Columbia midroof I found at Bay & Bay's terminal just south of Minneapolis. It looks like a regular fleet truck also, except for the patriotic theme... I really like it when companies decorate their trucks this way.  8-)

Very nice to see patriotic trucks out there... I'll even admit that Volvo doesn't look too bad. :-P

That Bay and Bay Columbia is amazing!  One of the better looking patriotic muraled trucks I have seen.  The Statue of Liberty looks almost real  :-o  Wouldnt mind seeing this truck in person.  Too hard to pass up!

Nice pics Jan!  :-)

Yeah, I like those patriotic trucks, too, especially the ones that aren't too overdone - like these two! I might add that my very first DCP rig was the "United We Stand" Pete, so...  :roll:

Thanks, Steve! I liked it a lot, too, and was very glad I decided to stop at that terminal when I saw it back there. I didn't think to check at the time, but I wonder if all those graphics are just foil, or if it's actually paiunted that way... Anyway, glad you liked it!  :wink:

Very cool catch, Rick! I guess they have several of these, as yours has different mirrors from mine. Pretty sharp truck, though, don't ya think?  :wink:
