Nice shots. OK, the first red Pete, a 378SBFA? :? And did you get a shot of the yellow pete next to the Gordon truck, it looks to be an older one with the "rare" 70in standup.

Had no idea JLP had Stars.  I've seen mostly Mack Visions and lately Freightliner Columbias but thats about it.  Nice pics.  I thought at first that heavy haulin Pete was a JK Hackl rig but the more I look, I dont think so.

Keep em coming!  :-P

The JLP Western Star is driven by my friend Craig, This truck has almost 700,00 miles on it as of February 2010.  Craig can be found helping Harvey Zander (Icy Blu II at various truck shows in the midwest.  When I worked for JLP, It was an all Mack fleet.

I know Charlie it's late to react but I saw this post only today and I found the Toyota unit highly interesting.It seems to have other units parked alogside this one.If you have some photos of them which seem to be part of the Toyota's in house fleet I am interested to look at it.

No need to apologize for just finding this thread Rene......Hank's has gotten so big over the last couple of years i don't think i catch all of them on a given day (but i try ;D). I have one more photo from the Toyota DC.........a few more FL's at the dock for the long weekend. Hard to believe it's 4 years ago when i made this trip and took these photos. :o
