I like the Miller rig and as always a sharp Carolina truck. :) Nice to be on the road and seeing companies you never see back home ain't it? ??? ;D

Excellent series--You really covered a lot of territory on your trip and got a lot of fine pics--thanks for sharing.

I will  be flying to Memphis next month and will visit my wife's sister and her family near Columbus MS . I usually travel from Memphis airport on US 78 (the route to Birmingham) to Tupelo and drop down US 45 which runs thru the town they live in.  The map don't show any rest areas but will see if I can pick a spot to get some shots. That will wind up my traveling for this year.

Yes, there is a lot of cool stuff in different regions. I had a great time and I was only standing here for about 20 or 25 minutes!

More nice ones! Great spot, and great pictures, too! I really like the Ballard Pete tanker, which is actually a 389 with old style headlights instead of a 379 - you will notice the slightly rounder grille if you look closer. I also like the NAVL big bunk Volvo, but my number one favorite of the bunch is the Carolina Tank Lines 389! They indeed do operate a very sharp fleet, although they don't really run too many tankers any more. ;)

Oh, and the car is a 1976 or 1977 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. A very cool catch! :)

I thought that was a 389! Guess typing 379 was becoming a habit. ;) I really enjoyed this spot. There's only one spot on the trip that was just as good in Eufala Oklahoma. I'll be posting those another time.

Looking forward to those pics. ;)  Hmm... looking at your trip pics in detail here has made me feel like posting more pics from my last trip to the US... I may just start doing that this weekend. :)

Lots of very nice looking trucks in this post! Among my favorites are the Golding Cascadia and the purple Carolina Pete 8)

Lots of good ones here!  I like that first FLD, as well as the Rawlinson Classic.
