Title: 10.... #1
Post by: HuntFlatbed on March 07, 2018, 03:52:10 PM
A new Idea... Jan Sele (Norseman) and I tend to spend time every day trading pics back and forth. He trades pics from his various Travels and I give pics of Trucks from my areas.  So as I survey this landscape, I will choose 10 and post them here.  I Invite Jan to reply and tell me if I"m choosing the best or the rest.  :P

E W Wylie Trucking of West Fargo, ND...  Known for Macks, I found a 579 hauling Boats!  This is something new for them I've seen.  I-29 NB on 2/16/18.

Canucks will recognize this Watt & Stewart 122 SD From Watt & Stewart's Canuck Division out of Clarsholm, AB.  Hauling a Very Canadian Flatbed with a single layer of Large Tires, or maybe (?) Tyres in Canada?  Heading NB on I-29 on 2/16/18.

On 3/2/18 I came across this Cannonball Express (Omaha, NE) O/O T2000.  For me... And Me only.. I say that T2000s are getting very rare, especially when well kept like this one.

Wow, that Ron Schoellerman 389 is awesome! Just a classy looking combination, love the color scheme, and just a sharp truck 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) I agree with you, the T2000's are starting to get a bit rarer. I still see them, both beat up and nice like that, but a lot of the fleets that used them transitioned to newer models. Swift bought a lot for their lease program right before production ended in 2010, but they moved to T700s and then to T680s so they didn't last long. I always thought the T2000s were a nice looking truck when spec'd right and kept in nice shape. CFI used to have quite a few sharp ones.
