They may be waiting for components.  That is quite common that they will almost finish some trucks and wait for components.  I have some other photos of Watkins and USF Internationals waiting for rear ends taken several years back.  Interesting to see they are still making Argosys as well.  I thought they were history.

I believe Argosy's are being sent overseas, Dave.

As the FL Dealer told me that they would be made into 2008 for sale in U.S. until the pre-emission engines were gone.

I just heard the same thing about the Argosys.  Too bad as they are the end of the COEs.

I saw a 48' FedEx Freight Wabash long box today that looked brand-new.

Greg there was at least 10 at Hagerstown MD last week and 5 had liftgates as well as the air ride. These are nice trailers but don't cut well due to the axle placement  the lift gates are fixed at the front most hole.   http://www.hankstruckpictures.com/forum01/index.php?topic=23244.0

The axles on this one weren't placed the same as some of the others I've seen.  I remember that thread too, this was the first time I've seen one of them in person.  FedEx Freight is still using a large majority of the ex-Wal Mart trailers here.

Thanks for the info on those trailers though Chad.

I-68 eastbound UPS (package side) sleeper team in a brand new IHC PRO STAR white in color with acorn decals on the door not sure about the roof it was around 1030 last nite. I am pretty sure it had a Penske sticker by the door post.

I saw one Saturday on I-95 NB near Jessup, MD.

It looks like UPS has a new reporting mark in their fleet of ex-railroad owned vans: PKGZ.  Previously, I have seen UPSZ, FSTZ and SCSZ.

Can't say I've ever seen a tandem M2 for them, Hunt.  Would like to see it myself. 8-)

New Volvos at our Boise terminal.  I didn't think we were getting any new equipment in 2009 but I was proven wrong!  You just never know what these companies have up their sleeve!  No one tells us anything!

When I was taking the wife to the doctor this am I came on a Mountain Valley Express--looked like new Cascadia with a long box making a delivery to a small strawberry farm that sits on the Cerritos Community College campus property.  Would have liked to have stopped for a pic but no parking on the street.
