Title: MATS 2018 Coverage (Updated 3-8-2019)
Post by: Iowa80 on April 01, 2018, 07:12:34 PM
I was able to make it to MATS for the first time this year, and since Jon_G was not able to make it there this year, it looks like I'll be the one posting truck pictures there instead.  I'll be the first to admit that my coverage won't be quite as good as his, especially as being my first time at the show I was just getting used to the way things are done there.  Still, I got good pics of most of the important stuff I think.  Like Jon's posts, I will have fewer trucks per post than I do with my regular shots, but will otherwise be formatted differently.  I know I've been pretty slow about updating my regular threads lately but will try to update this one most days.

I'll start with pics from the Show and Shine, most taken on Friday morning.  I wasn't at the show on Thursday because I drove down that evening after work, and then I learned from Jon_G later that Thursday is the best day to get pics where the crowds are concerned.  The crowds did seem to be bad at this point, so I did the best I could, but didn't spend too much time trying to get a particular truck as overcast clouds were to roll in in a couple hours, and made a point to swing by the other MATS truck parking lots while it was still sunny.  I then swung by later when it was cloudy to get pics I had really wanted to but couldn't in the morning.  I will start off the series with the bobtails in the show.

389 with no DOT numbers or company markings or anything like that.  However, the sign on the ground next to it says it is called "Long Run" and owned by Ronnie Jordan.  I just love the paint scheme on this; very classy IMO.

This was the best shot I got of this rather cartoonish looking pink Peterbilt, for a company called 8 Second Express.

In stark contrast to the one above, one of my favorites at the show was this perfect 359 for Dalton Bontrager Trucking out of Nappanee, IN. 8) 8)

Great first set of photos from the show! I like all of them, but the Dalton Bontrager 359 is awesome. The color scheme is very eye-catching and the period-correct aftermarket sleeper cab really makes it look cool! The Army truck is an unexpected addition, but it is cool looking as well. There are always a few non-descript new trucks in the Show and Shine also. They are usually part of a dealership or custom shop's display. In the case of the Jordan 389, I think it is a truck sales group. Anyway, great photos! Glad the weather held up, I had seen some photos on Instagram of the trucks in snow (typical for this area in what is supposed to be Spring).

Unmarked W900A with a worn paint job, although something tells me the owner may be keeping it that way on purpose.

A trio of unmarked cabovers (not sure if they have the same owner, but were just parked next to each other), all of which look really cool IMO.

The Bontrager rig is awesome, kind of makes you want to smack the owner of the next one upside the head. ;)

Wonder if there's any relation to Dave Bontrager, I believe he is also from Indiana.

Thanks for the show coverage Iowa80!
I'd love to make it out to MATS eventually.

I can't even begin to name multiple favorites though, just so many gorgeous rigs! ;D

That V-Max and the 352 were in the show last year, both awesome looking trucks. The 352 is a 1974, owned by Greg Jenkins from Winchester, KY. It is a beautifully-restored truck, and was very cool to see in person. I never realized how tall the 352 is until standing right in front of one. The other cabovers are cool as well, particularly the K100 8) 8)

I'm loving the coverage Iowa, I'm seeing a lot of nice trucks and a few I saw at the Southern Classic last year. Like that White Pine W900, it was at the SC. Hope you caught it during the light show, it looks really cool when they light the truck up and you can see the silhouette of White Pine Paving carved in the bumper lit up.

Excellent paint job, a creative take on a classic.  To me, this is a nice example of going the custom route but keeping it classy.

The Peterbilt auto hauler is super cool, that's a great color combination! It is cool to see Valley Transportation showing up with a couple of units as well, they run a sharp fleet as a whole. I agree that the second one is definitely a nice looking custom, and I would be surprised if it is not an O/O, unless it was a special unit they had done up for the show. Finally, cool catch on the White Pine Paving KW. It's a 2000 and has been there almost every year I have attended.

Nice set of bobtails you got there. Is that RD Excavating 389 a show rig? The chrome 5th wheel makes it look like it. I like the way they did that one up, nice change from the burgundy 389/needle nose 358 they brought to 75 Chrome last year.

That Kenworth, which is awesome IMO, was built by Davis Bros. Designs from Indiana, it was being displayed by them at the show last year, but it appears their name has been replaced by something else on the grille, so not sure who owns it now. Nice catches in general, these are all cool.

Really cool Pride & Class 389 for MSM Transport out of Huntington, IN.  This small reefer company is based not terribly far from me, so I see their trucks around, and they've definitely got sharp units with some really neat paint schemes to boot.  However, this is the first time I recall one being entered in a truck show.

Another nice set! I really like the look of the Pyskaty Bros. 379, I think it looks cool with the side of the bumper color matched but chrome otherwise, and the color is cool looking IMO. That older Western Star is really cool as well, looks in awesome shape. The MSM Transport is definitely sharp, I agree, the paint scheme is super nice. But the favorite for me is the Fleenor Bros. Kenworth. They have had some really cool KW's there the last few years, and this one is no exception. Just super cool! 8)

I have to agree on the Fleenor; they're one of my all time favorite fleets for sure.  I love fleets like that that not only run nice looking trucks, but also keep things interesting by having a variety of cool paint schemes on their truck, and Fleenor is a prime example of that.  They have a bunch cool pictures of their various trucks on their Facebook page.

K100 for Hurricane Specialized out of Hurricane, IN.  No DOT numbers or anything like that that I'm aware of, so this probably isn't a working truck.  Design wise, although not completely stock, it was one of my favorites though.  I know things like the big bumper, straight pipes, and 15 lights on the roof may be controversial, but IMO that looks perfect on this truck for some reason, and still has a very nice clean look to it.

The first Davis Designs Peterbilt is really cool, it features a color scheme that was one of Peterbilt's factory color options back in the 1970s and 1980s, looks cool to see it on a newer one. The K100 is a favorite as well! Hurricane actually recently purchased that truck from what I have seen, it used to belong to a guy out of Georgia, who had it at the show a couple of years ago and has since sold it. It definitely was not a working truck then. Normally the trucks Hurricane shows are not working, but you never know. They definitely raised the stance a bit to make it more factory, which I think really makes the truck look cool.

Yes, that is a little snow you see there on the Coronado.  This spring has been frustratingly cold as polar air has repeatedly slipped down from Canada to pummel the midwestern U.S., and a snowstorm went through Louisville a couple days before I went down there, and there was still a little snow left on the ground on Friday morning.  Then driving back home I went through the tail end of a snowstorm just south of Indianapolis, which was heavy enough to significantly slow down traffic, and I passed by about a dozen slideoffs or accidents between Louisville and Indy.  IN LATE MARCH.  And just today there was a little snow accumulation here in northern Indiana this morning... winter just does not want to go away this year! >:(

Part 9 from the Show and Shine.

Very nice 389 for Hammett Excavation out of Dodd City, TX.  I just love the colors and the aggressive yet not overdone look of this truck. 8)

R. Jones also had this W900 on display.  I love the colors on this one; it's a shame it doesn't have a stock grille, and 389 headlights, which if you ask me just look silly on a W900.

One of my top pics from the show was this W900 Icon for Basse LLC out of Hinton, OK.  Everything is done just right, and the detail on this thing was really amazing.  I still can't get over how freaking perfect this truck is! 8) 8)

Maybe I should have included this in the bobtails section, but there were a few truck based rat rods in the show, of which this one will be representative.  They didn't interest me much and barely even look like trucks, so this was the only pic of one I took.

Haven't heard of First Class doing a color change, however, IMO the 359 shown above is really cool, and I'm all for some variety, especially if the trucks continue to look that good! That Randy Manning Kenworth W900L is really sharp also. There always seems to be a couple of really nice looking dump trucks in the show.

Couldn't the people who fabricate the exhaust pipes come up with some sort of rain caps for them?
Buckets look tacky!
Go to all the expense of buying them. Go to all the work of polishing them and then go to Dollar General for a couple of plastic buckets.

Thanks for the comments guys; I'm glad you enjoyed.  There's more to come, and I'll post coverage of the indoor show next, which I did on Saturday when it was really cold outside and did nothing but drizzle all day.  I waited until towards the end of the show to take these pics so the crowds wouldn't be such an issue, but that also means I was a bit rushed in taking these and therefore missed getting pics of a few things there.  That and I've never been much of a fan of pictures from indoor parts of shows like these as the lighting never makes for good pics.

Bolt Custom Trucks and Manufacturing had a trio of big bunks on display.  First, this T680.  I really like the design of the sleeper on this one as the design flows nicely into the cab area.

And also this 567, which I couldn't get a clean shot of due to the stair assembly on one side and building pillar on the other.

A company called Vander Haag's Inc. had this LoneStar converted into a pickup on display

379 for Trux Accessories.  There's so much going on visually with this truck, in person (with the bad lighting making it worse) it was almost painful to look at for too long.  I guess you could say it takes "eyesore" to a whole new level. :D ::)
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/MTOYwMN2T4TTTD/14895600.0/org/p/DSC_9279.jpg) (https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/MTOYwMN2T4TTTD/14895600.0/org/p/DSC_9279.jpg)

Something a little more my style, this 389 customized by Davis Bros.  This is why I don't like the indoor show for displaying trucks other than dealer promo units and whatnot, as these trucks deserve to be seen under the sunlight, without having to worry about all the crazy reflections.  I will say though that these trucks sitting inside weren't so bad in person, but just photograph horribly.

389 for Michael A. Manuel Trucking out of Front Royal, VA.  I love the paint scheme, and this is a perfect truck to me except for one thing that really bothers me, which is the blacked out headlights.  I've seen this become more common on otherwise nice 389s, and don't remember seeing it hardly at all even a couple years ago.  It just hate it when there's something this nice, only to be messed up by some stupid little thing like this that doesn't have to be there. >:(

Indoor photos are not so bad, lots of reflections does give a different twist........but I agree, outdoors is best! Some nice things inside, glad you are covering!

Funny that you posted this one last Sunday as I caught it the day before on I-79 near Zelienople PA.  Its actually not a Halloween theme, but straight up witches.  It's an '85, owned and driven by a women who has owned it since new.

I actually like the lighting effects from inside, gives it a cool, reflective look. And that 359 is definitely cool, nice catch of it on the road Paul. It was leased on with Clean Harbors Environmental for a long time, but I guess is with Long Haul now.

Once again, I've been pretty lazy about updating this thread lately. ::)  It had been a rather crazy last couple of weeks, and sometimes I just feel like taking a break from posting pictures every now and then.  I'll make sure to get through them all eventually though.  Here's part 4 from the indoor show.

Man, that Bighorn wrecker really gets around! :o
It was in North Carolina last year at the ATHS in Colfax.
It has an interesting history: originally a tractor hauling fuel in Chicago, then the wrecker unit was added by a father/son team, eventually the father retired and the son wanted to rebuild it as something different, father said no, and sold it. It sat in a barn for years, at some point the barn collapsed. Afterwards, the current owner bought and restored it to what we see now.
Supposedly, once the wrecker unit was installed, it only towed about 5 vehicles, which is why it's in such good shape now.
Anyway, the two FLC tractors are real beauties, and the ARI sleeper rigs are sharp as well. 8)

Even if I haven't said it much I am really enjoying your sets Iowa. Lots of new and interesting trucks this time around. As for your last set, the 389 at the bottom really stands out for me. The way they added a curtain onto a lowboy is a really cool look, as is the Pete.

The 6th and last part from the indoor show.  That's all my coverage from the official show, however there is more coming from the parking lots.

Two trucks for Pilot Transport out of Romulus, MI

I'll finish off this post with Mack's lineup of new trucks they had on display.  I know most people here aren't crazy about the look of this truck, and I think it falls short compared to the current crop of aero trucks out there, but I do like it better compared to the old Vision/Pinnacle.  The design of the old Pinnacle, while inoffensive, is one of the most boring, generic truck designs out there IMO.

Mack also had this cutaway of their truck, complete with its regular interior on the inside.

A more subtle grille look would go a long way towards improving that image, it's like they they had to remind everyone in big flashy letters that it's a Mack. The SFFA Pinnacle had a classic look and now it's gone.

Anyways to stay on topic I really liked the big bunks Iowa.

Thanks for the show coverage, there is a huge difference between that show and the one we had here........the chrome does look a little better on the Mack then what I have seen here so far.

Sorry, I'm a little late here, really enjoying all the show photos though! The Mack's are not really my thing. I actually am alright with the grille, but the shape of the headlights and the bulbous bumper kind of bother me.

Now onto my parking lot coverage, I'll start off with the Papa John's stadium parking lot even though I took these later on Friday, after the clouds had rolled in.  IMO the other lots generally had better trucks, so I'm just saving some of the good stuff for last.  Because the lighting wasn't as good and many of the trucks were packed in pretty tightly, I was pretty selective with what I decided to take a picture of.

I caught the TAK Trucking KW recently but it's a little over the top for me. I really do like the 9300 in such good shape. :) Looking forward to the rest of these pics........to me this is where the real show is. :)

Outstanding coverage Iowa, idk where to start. All the Landstar rigs are looking good as usual (except for the aforementioned 9400 abomination), as are the Petes/KWs. Love the reefer big bunks in particular, those are rare for me. Especially the blue one you mentioned earlier, that thing is gorgeous.

It's been way too long since I've last posted here. :-[  A couple of reasons for that which I won't get into much.  In late July I went out to Nebraska and Kansas for about a week (not many truck pics from this one, and I don't think I'll post the few I did take) and wasn't focused on posting.  Things were also crazy leading up to the trip, plus general laziness and, while I still check the forum regularly, less interest in being involved here due to the declining activity.  I simply felt like taking a long break from posting.  Anyway, at the very least I must finish this MATS coverage.

I'll echo what the others have said, welcome back Iowa, your presence has been missed.

Nice shot of the DGCI W900, I've seen him 4 times on the beltway outside DC and each time a car has been cruising beside him so I couldn't get a clean shot. Glad you didn't have that difficulty with it. Your coverage of MATS has been fantastic btw.

Thanks guys!  I'll get into it more once I finish posting the rest of these pics, but nothing crazy has happened to me that explains my absence, unless you count inexplicably running a moderate fever for sixteen days straight in December, then getting a nasty stomach bug a week after that to finish off 2018.  However even if I had the energy that particular month I likely wouldn't have posted anything anyways, not to mention the other recent months I have been inactive.  This forum isn't what it used to be so I found myself less engaged here, but it didn't seem fair not to complete this thread here.

Another fantastic set, can't pick a favorite but gotta lean towards that W900A set up from Ben Hastings......one thing I would do is change the grille back to stock but still a beauty!!

Jim.

The Marmon sure in cool, I heard some years ago that when the last Marmon rolled out of the factory, all the employees in the factory signed their names on the interior. That may just be a tall tale someone spun for me, but it'd be neat if it actually is true. :)
The J.D. Looper and the MAG Petes are nice, I actually caught them last year at a show here in North Carolina.
The big Volvo motorhome is cool too, really nice paint job on it. 8)

This forum isn't what it used to be so I found myself less engaged here, but it didn't seem fair not to complete this thread here.

Great shots.  If everyone who said this the last few years would kick in once in a while, we'd be close.  Looking at my profile, I can't believe I first registered in 2003, 16 yrs ago!  Was "social media" even a term back then?

I'm amazed he's still around.  I've never crossed paths with it on the road, just saw it at MATS in the late '90's.

I enjoy seeing a rig like this as much as anything tricked out.  Basic and business like, but dressed up as well.
