Nice pic; I think I'll take the VNL780 up front, though. ;) Hehe. :)

The front one is brand new as well. Notice the delivery note (or whatever it is called) in the windshield, same as on the daycabs.

That looks nice, I recognize the slogan from their last commercial I saw.

Surprised that the skirts are flush with the sidewalls, thought the trend was the angled ones.

They have some new No-Zone pups as well. Saw a picture on the net. Will have to look out for these.
The foot turned to the horse, the horse to the carriage, the carriage to the train, and the train to the truck.

Nice find Jimmy! I wonder if it's an autoshift? I know some of their new Mack Pinnacles have mDrives.

I can see the D13 badge on the side so it'll be the Volvo iShift.  I really like the one I've been driving, waaaay better than the Eaton AutoShifts of old.

I was passed by 2 White Volvos for UPS Freight that were pulling containers for Chiquita Bananas.  They were heading north on I-495 in Delaware.  Looks like UPS is diversifying.

Pitt Ohio Kenworth T370 straight truck in Quakertown.

Good catch. You won't see many of those , they're going with Freightliner for the straight trucks this year. Be on the lookout for aluminum rims on tractor steers.
