Last news I heard only hauling they were doing in the automotive industry was for Harley and West Coast Choppers.

Could be new though.

Wow!  With the exception of their fling with GMC in the 80s, Ward has traditonally been an International fleet.
It's a Mack thing. you wouldn't understand.....

Another new equipment sighting which was also an odd pair up... I saw a Roadway Volvo VNM twin-screw (orange bumper) with what looked to be a brand new Vitran long box. It had all the new logos on it billboard style, chrome swing doors and it looked to be a Great Dane.

It most certainly does count. It's purpose is used the same as a cascadia or sterling. Where the tractor came from has no effect.
