--- NEW--- Old school SNI pics from the COE days!!!
« on: March 22, 2011, 08:38:38 PM »
A long time Schneider driver named Doug Coldiron sent me a bunch of old SNI pics to put in my gallery on Hanks.  He has been with SNI since 1989 and is now an O/O leased on with SNI.

WOW!!! Thanks Mike & Doug! These pictures pretty much parallel my career in the early to mid 90s, except for the color of the truck.  Thanks again for the memories.

Wow, Mike. These are awesome! I loved them all, but that Argosy tops the cake. The 9700 with that different airshield is really cool, and that Century looks really good brand new.

Thanks to roogie for the Photo!

Wow!!! Very interesting!!!

How come a 1993 truck would have a 4 digit number while a late 80's truck had a 5 digits number???
