We have 2 Columbias in Kansas City with Mercedes power, they've been test units for quite a while.  They seem to be nice, only the 2 drivers assigned to them get to drive them.

Noticed 5 Sterling tractors painted in UPS Freight colors at the Brecksville, Oh. terminal  this past week. I guess there are more than we think !!

I remember driving by Boonville, MO when I travelled that highway.  I always thought the name was funny. :-D  Did they get many trucks back in '08 and for '09?  The bulk of trucks I see are '05 to '07 and in pictures a few Macks for '08.

Must be why Dayton Freight always had a heavy duty bumper on their 9200s!
