Flying Under the Radar
« on: May 14, 2009, 03:15:45 PM »
International conventionals never seemed to get their due as a good looking classic "large car", going back to the Transtar 4300, the 9300, and the current day 9900.  In fact, there's not always alot of comment on them either way, good or bad (thus the thread title :evil:).

This beautiful rig was seen headed west on 70 in W.Va. last Sunday.


Is that driver wearing a tie?

Couldn't agree with you more sir about the Internationals. The truck below was at the 2007 Englishtown show - quite a looker.


The owner/operator is John O'Rourke Sr. from Braddock NJ and i've been seeing this tractor around since the old NAST shows at Bordentown in the early 2000's.


Oh and what's so surprising about the driver wearing a tie?  :? John wore one every day - i believe there was an article in one of the trucking mags about him several years ago.

Both are sharp lookin' rides. I've always liked the 9300 and the 9900 and agree that they never seem to get their due.  :?

I think the driver in the 9900 was wearin' a tie. That's a rare sight. There are some Quebec companies that use uniforms with a tie as part of it. I'm all for tryin' to give truckers a good professional image but I sure wouldn't be comfortable in it. To each his own.  :-D

Paul

 Just thinkin' out loud here. The red Binder looks so new & shiny i'm wondering if the fellow driving it could be a sales rep perhaps & is either taking the truck to perspective customers or a small industry type show in the area? Either way it's a great lookin' large car IMO.  8-)

Either that or he owns the trailer also. Liberty's logo is normally maroon in color and I've never seen any of their trailers in near that good condition.

Yep they almost look like New Century, I thought when I first saw them they might be connected.

Aren't there 2 Libertys? IIRC Liberty Linehaul has the maroon livery - this Liberty Express i've seen before & the trailers have a red logo.

Liberty Linehaul is out of Canada.  This Liberty I believe is based in Western Pa, they have a small yard on US 22 out in the Delmont area, east of Pgh.

Click the link below and scroll halfway down the page. That's what the logo has been for many years. Maybe they are changing to red.

BTW, when navigating Liberty's web site the Peterbilt's engine will start up when you mouse over it or change pages, unless I killed the battery. :wink:
