Yeah, go back even further and bring back the bumble bee, that would be cool but.....yellow is great with the stripes!

Jim.

You might be asking too much there Jim!

When I started at Midland in '95 there was talking going around that all Irving Group owned trucks would be changing over to the lower cost plain white with a striping package based on the previous colours. In Sunbury's case it would be yellow and black stripes. All of the operations except Midland went for the change, but as can be seen, the original fleet colours are returning. Only Irving Oil remains in white.

Maybe it's an Ontario thing? :)

Nope, I live in Maine and my father had gotten assigned to a brand new International back in 1997, Even though he was bobtail, He had just left the shop that he was working for at the current time where he drove that particular truck for, He had just gotten home with his old truck that he was assigned to before he got assigned to that particular International, He was bringing the International home for the weekend to show me and was also bringing it home to move some extra stuff into it he had at the house from his old assigned truck, His than current boss had told him to bring the truck home for the weekend, Anyway, I remember the very first time he had driven the truck, He was about ready to go up a pretty steep hill with it and fuel gauge in the truck had stayed stuck at full on him, When he got it on top of the hill, The fuel gauge inside of the truck decided to go to empty leaving my father stuck on the side of the road on top a hill with a truck that had no fuel in it, Luckily he was able to get it off of the road before it completely shut down on him, He had to take back his old assigned truck out he had before he had gotten that International for a few more trips while the International went back to the dealership they bought it from to get the fuel gauge fixed in it, Later on that very same particular truck almost cost my father a speeding ticket when the speedometer was off on it, Luckily after Dad had proved the speedometer was off in the truck, When the particular truck was brought back to International, The cop that gave my father the ticket, made sure he'd be free of it where it wouldn't go on his license or where he'd have to pay the ticket, Because, When she wrote out the ticket to my father, She wrote it out as a pending ticket, After those two problem's were fixed with that particular truck though, It ended up being a pretty decent good running truck and was probably one of the stronger trucks my father had through out his driving career...

To everyone else, I've never been really fond of the Western Star 5700...
