Oklahoma to Missouri- Part 11
« on: January 05, 2012, 06:44:06 PM »
From here on out through our journey down I-44 there were periods of rain. That didn't stop me from taking pictures... and they came out good too!
CTI Kenworth T-660 and company rounding a bend on I-44.

  • XPedx International 8600.
  • Oakland Lubrication Mack Pinnacle daycab.
  • JCT Freightliner Cascadia.
  • Sygma Volvo VNL with a PLM reefer.

Not sure who runs this Peterbilt 389, but it's one of my favorite trucks from the whole trip!

  • Peterbilt 379 with a loaded step-deck.
  • International 9400 pulling for Altom Transport. Wish I would have caught one of their company trucks. There's a nice Peterbilt on their homepage
  • National Transport Kenworth T-400.
  • Peterbilt 379 hay hauler.

I think this is what you large car fans call an "outlaw?" Simple but out of the ordinary.

  • Werner International 8600 boat hauling tractor with a dry van.
  • Kenworth T-660 pulling for Pilot.
  • Gully Transportation Freightliner FLD.
  • SM Freight International Prostar.

Big Tex Kenworth T-600.

  • Peterbilt 379 pulling for All States Trucking.
  • Mercer White/GMC. I caught this same truck or its sister over a year ago in Philadelphia.
  • Another fine looking Peterbilt 379.
  • SM Freight International Prostar.

Can't tell to whom this Kenworth T-660 belongs.

  • J.A.R. Express Kenworth T-660.
  • Unidentified Peterbilt 379 cattle hauler.
  • JMK Trucking Kenworth W900L with a load of Dodge trucks.
  • Gold Kenworth T-660.

Very nice series. I think the SM ProStar is definitely my favorite of the bunch. 8)
The Werner boat hauler is cool too, its actually an 8600 though. ;)

More cool pics, and that first one is just awesome! A Pic of the Month picture if ever I saw one! 8) And I, too, love that white and orange 389 - it and the SM Freight ProStar are my favorites of the bunch. Very sharp indeed! That "outlaw Pete" (I'm not enough of a large car fan to know the lingo, I guess, but you're probably right, hehe) looks to be a 389, although they have obvoiusly tried their best to hide this fact, hehe. ;)

And finally...
Can't tell to whom this Kenworth T-660 belongs.

I'm pretty sure this one is for Wild West Express out of Las Cruces, New Mexico. http://www.wildwestexpress.com/ Pretty sharp looking fleet, and I love the look of their logo. ;)

More Great Stuff!  This time in the rain!  I too like that Green Pete as well as the "outlaw" Pete and the Gully FLD.

Very interesting series. I like those pics taken in the curve with the road in the background.  I like a lot the SM Trucking ProStar. It is one of my favorite Ontario fleet by I have not seen any of their trucks in the last 2-3 years.

Very nice pics of all these trucks. I have never seen a non-steel wheel Xpedx before, and that one looks quite sharp. That green Pete is indeed an impressive truck as is the JCT Cascadia and Gully FLD 8)

I can't decide if it looks better pulling the flatbed or the tanker. Thanks for that throwback Fishhook. 8)

Rollin as in Vinnie? Interesting, I bet it looks good hooked to that curtainside. 8)
