         I started taking rearview shots as an archival type thing last year.  Never knew what to do with them.  Guilty pleasure I guess. I have 210 shots so far, these are my LTL shots.(don't worry, much less than 210)
 






                  Greg, thanks for the thread.
Thanks for Looking!

You got some good stuff Mike. Thanks for sharing it all. I do this as an archival thing as well.

Dave Faust shared this photo a CF friend of his took back in the '70s of a set of "Pennsylvania Doubles" CF used to combat PA length laws.

It's kind of refreshing to see an Overnite pup that doesn't have the paneling all beat up and missing parts of or entire logos. Is the power a Volvo VNM?

The pup does seem in decent shape. The power is an all brown ProStar, with the new logo.
If I was running 30 seconds later, I could have gotten a shot out the driver's window before I merged on. :-\

Neat you're seeing some of these newer all brown trucks. I haven't seen any yet.

Here are some back door shots Dave has shared with me. He gets a lot of LCVs and sometimes finds sets with the "long load" signs on the back as required by certain states like Oregon.
USF Reddaway set with a D.A.R.E. pup on the end.

FedEx Freight trucks

Diamond Line (one of my favorite northwestern US fleets...)

Great pics, that FedEx Freight pup 8-17983 is a former Watkins/National LTL pup.  The 8- has been dropped for FedEx Freight usage, surprised to see this one still has the 8- on the door.

I noticed that. I'm not sure when Dave took the photo. What did FedEx National LTL add the 8 for?
