The local Estes terminal has had some GI pups parked on their lot for several months. This past Thursday I got a quick glimpse of an ex-Heartland 9400 with red rims and the standard red Estes logo on the door. It was pulling 2 GI pups and appeared to have come from that terminal.

Short hood Prostar from FXF in WVA 4/15.  I believe granitefan posted one of these at a dealer.

Saw a Ward Trucking Prostar twin screw daycab this afternoon up in Newtown, PA near I-95.
The foot turned to the horse, the horse to the carriage, the carriage to the train, and the train to the truck.

Caught a Saia Prostar single axle daycab this afternoon while sitting in traffic.  Got a crappy pic of it I will try to upload tomorrow night.

Was it other than Red? This terminal here in Sparks got 3 new to them Prostars. They look like Penske or Ryder former lease trucks. Two are white and one is yellow, and yes, same problem. No nice photo yet.

Spotted an ABF ProStar daycab at a Shell Gas Station in Arkansas last night. It was too dark for a pic, and we just grabbed fuel and left anyway.

Thanks to roogie for the Photo!

ABF prostar? That must be a test unit. :)

           I found this Celedon Prostar at a Kroger in Lansing, Mi. on a weekend layover.

Thanks for posting, Mike, that is a nice shot, but Celedon has been running ProStars for quite some time, and they are a OTR operations company, not LTL.  ;)
ABF prostar? That must be a test unit. :)

It would have to be because I didn't see another one on the whole trip, just Macks and Cascadias.

I have yet to see a Cascadia, just Mack's and Sterlings here. Plus, ABF's new order of 300 more Mack's started hitting the line. I guess I know what we'll be seeing at Macungie this weekend! ;D

                 Okay, i am going to try this again. :-[ 
      Today, on my way home,                                                                                                          1) I saw a Conway T660 and 2 Cascadias. Its nice to see something other than Fordlings.
2) I saw a Fed Ex PB 587 pulling doubles on east I-96.  Sorry no pictures.
