Another nice series! I'm liking all those T700s! The rear view shot of the 386 almost has a vintage look to it.

Thanks Dave. A LOT more T700s to come. The PGT truck was horribly discolored from a reflection on the back windshield. I did what I could with Photoshop so it looks somewhat decent.

More and more T700s out there, huh? The Millis one looks especially good, and I guess I may actually be warming to the look of the T700. If only they had visors... ::) The Pete 379 in your last pic here is gorgeous, btw. ;)

I've grown to like the T-700. It may not have a visor but the lack there of has grown on me anyway! Also I really like that last Pete too.

Great pics! Nice catch on the TMC. On my trip south this summer, I kept trying to take pics of them but something would always seem to happen, either Id miss it timewise or a car would pass... ;D

Greg, To bring up a kinda old topic, I thought I would say a nice catch on the TTI and Danny Herman in this post! The owners are brother and sister DHT being from Mountain City, TN and TTI being from Zionville, NC.

Hey, no big deal. Any comment, any time is welcome. And thanks for the info on DHT, I don't know much about them as a company!

I live just a few minutes from DHT's office and their truck shop and I also work about a mile from the TTI yard also. DHT was pasted down from father to son and daughter has part ownership with TTI.

Hey Greg, I was looking back thru these awesome series and I just thought Id ask a question. I hope to have an SLR in the coming months and am taking a trip south myself. I won't be the one driving so I usually take pics out the rear side window. All of these shots have turned out clear and so I was just wondering if there was a certain technique you use to get such clear images or if the camera does a good job of that on its own? Thanks! :)

It practically does it on its own. I use the manual mode to get my pictures, but I was also manually focusing. I recommend just having the focus on automatic because it's too easy to mess up the shot trying to fiddle with manual focusing on the road. You basically only get one shot at getting a decent photo. The manual mode worked well for me because I could keep changing the shutter speed and depth of field to my liking, but you could use the sport's setting if you're still not sure how that works by the time you go on your trip. Jan uses that setting and it works well for him. I'm not sure if yours will come with more than one lens, but if it does, use the 18-55mm for shooting out the side window. You'll definitely be able to fit the whole truck. I was doing shooting out of both depending on where I was sitting in the car. To shoot out the windshield I was using my 55-200mm.

Hope this helps some.

Thanks for your response Greg, this was very helpful! :) I was hoping the 18-55 would work for side shots because honestly I don't want to buy a whole second lens yet ;) I use the sport on my Kodak PS now and I have gotten used to the autofocus so glad to hear that works well, tho eventually Im sure I will try and learn manual eventually. Anyway thanks for your help! :)
