Another very nice series.

I like that white Western Star 4900SA, although its very plain, it has a very tough "get down to business" look to it. I've also been seeing a lot of Titan Transfer lately, I missed at least 3 of their new 587s on my road trip. :-\

That white Western Star is a US Government piece. It has government tags on it.

I see you caught a Pullen Bros. I thought they went you long time ago, my dad used to own one of their ex volvos in the ealry 90's.

Thanks Dave, I don't know if I saw any Titan 587s on this trip. I could have though, a lot of fleets have them!

I thought that's what the graphic on the sleeper was. Thanks for the info!

The Dart Prostar is a Dart Transit unit---or were you referring to it as an IH Prostar.  ???

Dart International--Mainly operates here on the West Coast and comes to the local Sears store quite often

I love the Jordan VNL730! Very sharp setup. 8)  The white Pilot 384 looks good, too, it sort of seems to match the trailer pretty well. Nice catch also on the Abilene Volvo pulling for Boars Head, and on the Coronado daycab. :)

New logo on doors too, Pilot/FJ. New trucks are supposed to be solid white or solid red, pulling either FJ or Pilot trailers.

I follow yours series with a great pleasure. It is a kind of discovery because most carriers  have never seen.  So I like all the pics. if I had to make a choice I would go for the Volvo VNL 730 in the first pic and for the  this rare Coronado day cab.

Some very nice ones in this set! Interesting to see a 386 for Pullen Bros, since they're usually an FL fleet.
Also, that unidentified T660 tanker looks to be from Imperial Trucking/Transport. Saw a similiar one on my trip this year. They must be regional because mine was just over in Tennessee.
