Pretty doubtful, might have been an 8100 with the reman hood that makes it look half Sterling-ish.
It was

I'm not a fan of the Egg-Nog, Ray, but I did get an early Christmas present from a co-worker this afternoon...... :wink:

Here is your Sterling-Ish tractor.

Nate, why couldn't that have been a Sterling?  I am sure UPS Freight will be running all the name brands UPS is buying and they have already proved that with the Mack Visions they are testing and the ProStars.  Sterling is the brand UPS is currently buying to fill their standing order so I am sure Ryan is correct!  Ryan, I will keep an eye open in Hermiston where the UPS Freight guys lay over coming out of SLC.  Maybe I will catch one of these!

If it was a Sterling, it would be a sight to see, as Sterling is now a defunct truck manufacturer.  Was it in UPS Freight colors?

These companies are always full of surprizes so you just never know.  They didn't tell us we were getting Volvos last year either and after the ProStars rolled in we were shocked to see Volvos and they ended up getting over 100 of them!  Why they keep this stuff secret is beyond me!  Test units especially won't be mentioned in the budgets as they usually get a deal on them.  I remember Roadway getting test tractors for about 1/2 the cost (purchase price used to be on the registration).

Most of our test units are shown on the registration papers that they were sold for $1.  We've gotten a lot of new 09 Volvo VNLs and we were told we were going all KW.  All the FXNational trucks I see now are the new Volvos.

Single axle or twin screw?  :? Either way i'd think it would look good in their livery.  8-) Almost asked if it was an R model.  :-D

Southeastern had Mack U models at one time but I don't remember R models.  Did Sterling already stop making trucks?  I thought they were going to finish off all their existing orders first.  I know UPS had an order in for them as CACH was supposed to get a bunch of them.  I figured they had about 6 months worth of orders left?

They are officially closing up shop around mid-09, so I'd say finish up orders and produce a few more lot sellers for the FL dealerships and then be done with it.
