Caught a New Century Prostar sleeper at the Westampton NJ terminal this morning. Crappy shot but i'm sure a better one will come along soon enough. ;D

Brand new 2012 Volvos sitting in the back 40 of the Kansas City yard.  Hope to get some time tomorrow to look inside and under the hood.

Very cool. I'm liking those new hood mounted mirrors. I saw a few on some VNL sleepers over the weekend.

Roogie ...  Did these Volvo's come fog light's? The front bumper's have the hole for them, but normally if there ordered without fog light's there aint no hole ! FDX FRT has never had fog light's on there truck's were as National did.

No fog lights, I would guess you'll not be seeing them anymore since FXF seems to run by the AF spec on tractors.  On the FTV™ for example it had a removable panel and the wiring for them however. 

My wife's Nissan was like that too, I bought a fog lamp kit for it and knocked out a couple panels on the bumper and put in a new headlight switch (came with the kit) and it was all prewired for it.

Got to pull a brand new converter this morning in from the Denver meet, will post pictures of it after I get some sleep.

I think it was a Great Dane, looked very heavy duty compared to most of the Monon or Silver Eagles.

Fed Ex Freight is starting to run some KW T-660s in the Northwest.  They seem to be numbered in the 12300-series so they must be fairly new if not brand new.  Haven't seen on with triples yet and probably wont judging by the weather this coming week.  I know these aren't new to Fed Ex but they are new to this area which was once dominated by Viking influenced T-800s.

Those are brand new (Cummins ISX powered with DEF, 10spd manuals, lack of lower side fairings).  Seems they've been skipping the R124xx range as the new Volvos we've been getting in Kansas City are R125xx numbered.  Usually when that happens there is a different brand involved, so I wonder if the R124xx range will be something besides KW or Volvo.
