 i came across the Yoder version at the Kwik-Fill off of I-80 in Barkeyville PA (the old Larry's Truckstop) back one evening in April of 2013.  It was some tough shooting as he was almost against the guardrail, plus that evil dumpster that seems to follow me around was directly behind.

It is great to see people still take pride in their paint jobs it shows there are other colours to be had not just white, a great looking rig.   Bob.

Glen Peachy is a name associated with sharp blue W-900 Kenworths going back into the early 70s when he leased to Safeway.
If I remember correctly, one of his tractors was Tractor of the Month in an Overdrive magazine issue.
Right-wing Old School.

Paul, Trailer #25 is pretty old....apparently the trailer that matches that W900, something about the floor needing to be replaced....not sure if it will go back into service.  I have to scan a photo in of it in.

Paul, Trailer #25 is pretty old....

If so, it still looks pretty nice.

In my quest to get some Peachey photos, this photo was given to me by a salesguy at Herragan Distributors, the name on the side of the trailer, who received it from Glen Peachey to give to me.  The cool part about it....I believe our very own Kevin Young took it a few years ago!  So I tagged it as such!  This is the trailer that I was told had floor issues.

Since it's been raining here all day i've been looking through a couple of boxes of truck photos and scans and found another Peachey KW not yet posted in this thread. I'll have to find the photo for the exact info but it's at the same truck stop in Carneys Point, probably around the same time. :-\

I was westbound on 80/90 in Indiana Saturday and look who I happened to catch eastbound.  Another one of Glen's old W9's that is now in the hands of a fella who is still operating under Glen Peachey's operating authority.  Chatted with him on the CB for a few seconds...they are still going strong!

Nice to see they are still around, I remember seeing photos of the AT64F on the main site, I don't think I have seen any of their trucks in person though.

Mr. Morton would like to share a photo of one of Peachey’s Kenworths. Taken on the Ohio Turnpike in the late 90’s

I believe the trailer in Gary's photo is the same trailer that's in Paul's photo.

The colorful KW that we've all come to know and love apparently is no more.  At least, not under the Peachey/Yoder name.  I saw two guys a couple months ago pulling the normal Herregan Distr run up here to Minnesota, one was Josh running a plain Pete 379 and unmarked plain reefer trailer, and the other fella was in a plain KW900L and a plain reefer.

I think the Peachey name may be dying off.   :-\

Well...just when you think the colorful KW is gone.....Josh Yoder must have got it back up and running.

This Sunday, SB on I-35 I saw the coloroful KW W900 pulling the white spread axle with matching reefer, so its back!!  Couldn't get a picture, it was getting dark.
