I remember Joe B talking about this but have never seen one in Orange. Very nice looking truck! Wouldn't mind driving that one.

The Pete 387 is my truck of choice.  When I drove one for a year at Marten, I enjoyed it very much!  Rides nice, comfortable, lots of inside room, excellent ergonomics.  I ran light most of the time and got right around 8mpg!!  I miss that truck.

Funny; not so long ago; at least up here in Canada all owner operators were painted in company colours. Often the tractor had to be painted before the first trip.
Now; an owner op in company colours is worth commenting on.
How times have changed!

I was thinking the same thing Rob! I've talked to O/O's who had dumped a company because they wanted the O/O's tractor painted in company colors! And now we have O/O's who WILLINGLY paint their tractors in company colrs!
You are right...times have changed!
