A rare shot there. It wasn't often you'd catch a Kwik as Air rig sitting still.

Unless it was 100 yards in the bush!

10 - 4 , Yep I can remember when Kwikasair was Running Strong in it's day...I'd be finished my Day and Deadheading down the Queensway to the Barn..I'd have the Throttle jammed on the Floor Board and this Big Grey haze would Pass me like I was Standing Still...And then too Riding in the Passenger Seat up somewhere on Hwy # 11 come across a Kwikasair jack knifed in the Bush.......

Was this where drivers ate when stopped at the MASS 10 truck stop?

Nice shot of an RL --looks like a gold bull dog sitting on the hood--with the twin stacks could have been a V-8 Maxidyne  ---The only place I recall was across the street and there was a motel on another corner but its' been too long to remember what it looked like.
i  live a  half a  hour from  the the  mass 10   was  ita a kfc/taco bell now. the  only  truck  stop near  me  is   on  rt20 in sturbridge

That's why they painted the trucks purple later on, so they were easier to find in the bush. ;)

British Columbia stopping places


Here's another Husky somewhere in BC.

Twin stacks on that daycab KW could indicate a Screamin' Jimmy under the hood.

Doyle Draying..This picture might not have been taken in BC.

The date was June 19, 1987. Things were about to become very interesting for those that stopped at this truck stop ---
