I love the 386. Still haven't seen one!  :x Do they only run those 386s in the east? Because I've been pretty much all over the West and Midwest the last few years, and have only seen Binders for Wal-Mart...  :|

There's a Wal-Mart DC near me that is literally nothing but new 386's. It must be an East Coast thing.

You know, I would figure Wal-Mart would use the 384.

Very annoying. I haven't seen a single one on my trips through there.  :|

Good point. Maybe they bought the 386s before the 384 was available? I seem to recall the 386 came out first of the two, but I may very well be wrong.  :wink:

Wal-Mart started buying 386s before the 384 was available. A Wal-Mart 384 would look good.

I'm disappointed they don't run 386s here in the Northwest.

Mt. Crawford (Harrisonburg), VA and Pottsville, PA (Grocery DC) have mostly 386's.
It's a Mack thing. you wouldn't understand.....

The closest one to me is Ashland, near Hazleton. Dad was going to apply to drive for them there, but went to NCT instead. That DC is new, and every truck they have is a 386.

Anyone got pics of the Volvos they ran for a while?  :?

So i went & dug one out of the shoebox.  :-D  Caught this one at the Secaucus NJ store 3-3-05. I've only got the one pic; guess they didn't stay around too long.  :|
