Title: APRIL 2012
Post by: JJG on April 01, 2012, 12:13:33 PM
April 1st, a beautiful day and a real cool truck to start off the month, maybe Spring is here. This is a 2007 Western Star bought as a glider so it still has the old school engine on board, a 600 Cummins Signature series, and it sounds wicked, looks great too!!

AMJ Moving a Canadian Atlas Agent---On I 10 east at Whitewater CA--4-5-12

I drove out to the Riverside National Cemetery today to put flowers on my wife's grave for Easter--Then I drove out to I 10 and stopped at the rest area at Whitewater --I was very windy I braced the camera against a sign and wondered if I would get anything worthwhile.  When I Googled the pic I was suprised to find it was a Canadian truck so will continue the Canadian string.  I had a visit from a Highway Patrol officer who wondered what I was doing but he was OK with it and told me to have a nice day.  :) :) :)
