A drive by; he was going one way while I was going the other.
When I down loaded the pic, I saw it was OAK-WOOD Transport , a car hauler from Ingersoll Ontario.

Great color on that one. Don't know if I'd rather have the Volvo or that beautiful GLK-Class. :wink:

I find those GLKs a bit too angular, so I think I'll go for the Volvo, hehe.  :wink:

There were two "portable parking lots" parked outside the local Chrysler dealer on Wednesday December 22/09.
One was an ordinary Sterling painted in white with green trim.


The other was a Volvo painted as a LEASEWAY MOTORCARS but decaled for AAG


Is LEASEWAY still in business or is it another Fallen Flag?

I wonder why all car carriers are old equipment? It's like the stopped making them 15 years ago and have to make due with what's left.

LEASEWAY seems to be still going. They have trucks staged in Oshawa on Stevenson Road South.
When skills ruled.

I saw this former E & L Volvo car hauler at a lot near Ford Oakville Assembly.



It is similar in paint to the old Maris Truck Lines and KID Equipment is located in the old Maris Truck Lines barn.
Maris was the prime carrier for Ford Oakville from the 50's to the 80's.

I saw that ex-E&L truck when I stopped by there on Friday.  Seeing that dry van in your pic made me wonder ----there

seems to be a change in the look of K I D's lign up.  Where are all the Mitsu Fuso trucks that they had for sale?

They used to be parked there.  I did see the one they have the snow plough hooked too, but are there any others?

Sorry, George, I didn't notice. There was at least one parked against the fence but I really wasn't paying attention to them.  I was there on Saturday.

Here's some day and night pictures from Allied Automotive at the CN Autoport facility at Quebec City / Levis (Charny) Joffre yard.

I shot this Pete with an empty car carrier trailer on the eastbound QEW.
**March 2015 This was a webshots photo that has disappeared**
It appears to be from Oakwood Transport of Ingersoll Ontario who use owner operator car haulers.
I couldn't find a thread about them, just some chit chat from a couple of years ago.
Car hauling has changed from the '60's and 70's when teamster carriers using daycabs dominated the industry.

Any other pictures of Oakwood Transport?
I'm sure I must have some.

I guess it's just another sign of my advancing fogeydom, but I just can't get used to seeing large cars as car carriers.
