Early Morning KW
« on: March 27, 2010, 02:01:39 PM »
First pic from the trip to New Orleans.  :-) Might have been a little too early and dark but after traveling a few hours i was ready to take a photo. :-D This fine lookin' KW was sitting a little diner on US 340 in Rippon WV on 3-25-10 and i'm glad i doubled back for a shot.

Nice truck, that paint is just so unique, a real twist on old and new ones.

You know what they advise on long trips::::::::take several pitstops/rest so you don't get driverfatigue       :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D
So you are just being carefull.

Gary & Paul

Thanks for connecting the dots for me re this being an ex Lilly truck. :-D I actually did catch their 10 wheeler KW & posted it in the "Various Covered Wagons" thread. :-)

Nice! I've caught the Lilly KW in Gary Morton's pic ("Preacher Man's Truck") twice on this trip, first at a Love's in Ky and then in a parking lot at MATS. Impressive looking truck, and judging from it and the 10 wheeler you posted in the other thread, Charlie, they must run quite a fleet!

Jan,
  They all have "Preacherman's Truck written on them. Look on my Marmon page & you'll
see the 1st one I ever photographed.

Very nice! Have only seen a couple of Lilly units, including their T-800 straight truck down in Tennessee.
