Title: Walmart 579s in Colorado!
Post by: norseman on October 18, 2014, 09:25:48 PM
I happened to find some exciting (to me, at least) new equipment for Walmart at the Pete dealership in Greeley, CO today. They had at least 30 new 579s parked in their yard! Notice the new lower "lips" on the skirts and bumper. I bet these are going to the Loveland, CO DC, which is just down the road from this dealership.

I think these are my favorite Walmart trucks so far.  :)

More pics... I snook into their fenced in back yard when noone was looking, through a partly open gate.  ;)

There were also a couple up front which hadn't yet had the air deflectors fitted.

I gotta say these are very nice! I like the way the unpainted skirting looks on these, which is odd as I didn't like it on the newest Cascadias. Great pics of them too! 8)

Ooooooooooooooooooo, I feel like Loveland DC always seemed to be PACCAR-heavy DC...I think that is the 1st place I can recall seeing a Pete 386 for Walmart, didn't they have one of the Green Pete 386's too?

Nice work Jan!

Jon - I agree! I feel the same way about both these and the new Cascadia Evos.

Mike - there actually was a green Walmart 386 sitting in the shop there; would have gotten a pic, but it was sitting with its a** end to me... :'(

Those are some good looking trucks. I like the gray skirts on them
