Here are quite a few trucks my father drove throughout his twenty seven year driving career

These's are atleast the one's I have picture's of and I will also say that most of these picture's I had to collect over the years, So, Most of these picture's aren't mine, So, Credit goes to whoever I've might of taken these picture's off of

1998 Ford Aeromax AT-9522, Unit #9 from Grand Prix Express out of Van Buren, ME, This was actually the last Ford Big Rig ever made, So, My Dad's ex-boss had "The Real Last Ford" lettered on the side of the truck near the bottom on the sleeper behind the doors







1998 International 9300 Eagle, Unit #12 from Morneault Transport INC. out of Eagle Lake, ME



1996 International 9300 Eagle, Unit #14 from Morneault Transport INC. out of Eagle Lake, ME



1993 Peterbilt 379, Unit #12 from Vaillancourt Transport LLC. out of Van Buren, ME, Dad and many others around the shop often called it the "Baby Mule" in reference to the Blue Mule from White Line Fever and that the color of the truck was closer to baby blue   

Current Picture:



Picture's of when my dad had it:







1997 Ford Aeromax AT-9500, Unit #18 from Morneault Transport INC. out of Eagle Lake, ME



1994 Ford Aeromax Hard Runner, Unit #8 from Grand Prix Express out of Van Buren, ME







1991 Ford LTL-9000, Unit #7 from Grand Prix Express out of Van Buren, ME



1988 Ford CL-9000, Unit #10 from Grand Prix Express out of Van Buren, ME, People may recognize this one as being the one that is owned by Nelson Soucy Transport out of Clair, NB, Canada today that many others of you on this forum have gotten picture's of today and I believe one of them that got picture's of it may of been Jan 

The story behind this particular truck is that it was ordered brand new by Hollywood Universal Studio Truck Lots and it was suppose to be shipped over seas to be in used in a movie, But, The director that was suppose to direct the movie had died, So, The movie never ended up being filmed or premiering, So, The truck was put inside of a warehouse and sat in a warehouse until my dad's ex-boss bought it back in 2001, At that time back in 2001 the truck only had 6,000 Miles on it and never had a trailer hooked on to it, Dad's ex-boss ended up buying the truck for $25,000 and than also bought an older stainless trailer on his way home was well, Too that also was stored away in a warehouse for quite sometime

Between the 1994 Ford Aeromax Hard Runner, the 1998 Ford Aeromax AT-9522, the 1991 Ford LTL-9000, the 1986 Ford LTL-9000 (Unit #6) which one of the bosses sons had owned at the time, the 1989 Ford LTL-9000 (Unit #11), the bosses sons two tone red and silver 1988 Ford LTL-9000 and this particular truck a whole complete Ford Fleet of Ford Big Rigs was been ran between 2001 and 2005, But, Only Dad's Ex-Boss, The bosses two sons and my father were the only drivers that ever drove the 1998 Ford Aeromax AT-9522 (Unit #9 "The Real Last Ford") and this Cabover, Because, Dad's Ex-Boss was very proud of the Cabover and the 1998 Ford Aeromax AT-9522 (Unit #9 "The Real Last Ford") was cranked up to having 700HP to the wheels, So, It was a very dangerous truck and needed to have a very trusted driver in it, Because, It was also a triple digit truck as well, Too     

Dad's ex-boss sold the truck to Don Soucy back in early 2006 when he began to have health problems which would be one of Nelson Soucy's sons







1987 Ford CL-9000, Unit #13 from Ouellette Farms out of Saint David, ME, This was actually a Boston Show Truck when it was brand new and it was originally ordered by a nascar hauler that never took it, So, Some of you might actually also have picture's of this truck as well, Too some where



1987 Ford LTL-9000, Unit #15 from Ouellette Farms out of Saint David, ME, This was actually a Boston Show Truck when it was brand new, So, Some of you might actually also have picture's of this truck as well, Too some where





1988 Ford LTL-9000 that the bosses younger son from Grand Prix Express out of Van Buren, ME would of owned



This is a two in one shot, The first one would be a 1986 Ford LTL-9000, Unit #6 from Grand Prix Express out of Van Buren, ME and also a 1989 Ford Aeromax the bosses younger son from Grand Prix Express out of Van Buren, ME had owned at the time which my father would of also drove at some point as well, Too

1992 International 9400 Eagle, Unit #25 from J.J. Bouchard INC. out of Van Buren, ME, , A little interesting fact is that International had used my dad's truck for a few promo shots before Ouellette Farms ended up getting their hands out on it and the only way I currently have picture's of it is through this brochure, This was there company color at the time and they had a bunch of these older 9400's, But, Dad's truck was the only one to have the exhaust upfront behind the doors and dual exhaust, They also had a couple other odd balls in the fleet at the time this truck was in the fleet, Unit #24 was a plumb color and the sleeper and cab on Unit #24 weren't separate like the rest of the trucks in the fleet were and also didn't have a wind breaker, Unit #19 was also a light baby blue color and Unit #26 and Unit #27 were the last of the long hood 9370's in the fleet, But, Were both traded shortly after this truck was bought for the fleet and also Unit #19 was the first older 9400 for the fleet, J.J.

Very cool video. Thank you for sharing. Although the general idea has remained the same, it is very interesting to see evolution in this industry over the years. I, as many others have, have been in and around this a long time (not so much as recently for me), and the technology today versus years ago is incredible.

Thank you Hank. I unfortunately haven't been as active as I was in the past, but I met a lot of great people, learned a lot, and very much appreciate you hosting my dad's legacy, in digital format, for as long as you were able to.  Thank you!

Maybe Facebook would be easier, most groups for fire trucks I'm in on there have a lot of members there. Is there a group for this forum yet?
