Wow.  This guy has all sorts of options going on here.
Forward fuel, chrome DEF cover, Space-Saver (COE style) battery box, a conventional style
tool box..  cool.


Tim


Do you think that would be a glider kit Tim, or does Peterbilt build with that many options for a guy?

A local outing to Tsawwassen on Saturday yielded all can haulers as Delta Port is at the end of the line, the only other truck seen in town was GFS making rounds in a Volvo

On Sunday, we decided to go east to Chilliwack for some goods we needed, it rained all the way up and back so no shots in transit! This cool Great Canadian Van Lines was sitting at one of the mall parking lots....maybe he was grabbing a King Burger ::)

then we caught this unique set up from Clean Harbours, a side dump lead trailer along with an end dump tridem on behind, all this riding on the back of the red oval


The Husky Truck Stop is across the street..........you didn't really think we would go shopping for the wifey and then NOT go to the Husky right? The rest of these are randoms from the Husky
Vedder with a W/S 5700 sporting a winter front

a Coronado MK II in the bobtail lot

VanKam Peterbilt 379 in the back row

a very bright Century with the tarp green matching the rear fenders

Home Hardware Prostar resting after coming in from Wetaskiwin Alberta

unknown IH 9900ix

a Volvo for TFX (Toronto) and a Cascadia MK II


more to come tomorrow

The Vedder 'Star is slick too!

IH 9900ix next to the kW

I was aiming more for this IH 9900i but sitting tight into that Columbia it got the better end of the stick

Peterbilt 579 from ATL (I think)

caught this Peterbilt 379 short nose making a delivery today in Surrey


and that brings us up to date, thanks for checkin in!

You got some great sets Jim, love the Great Canadian Van Lines T660 in particular. Wish I'd see more Canadian movers down this way, never seen that carrier before.

The old FLD looks like it got punched in the beak. :D
Anyway, cool catches, and the old Mercedes Fire Truck is very interesting, I wonder what its story is.

The old FLD did get a punch in the beak!
The story on the Mercedes, not sure where it originated from although it seems to have either German or Austrian(?) signage and plates on it, I was told it was brought into Canada by someone from Alberta, now sold to someone in WA State, he stored it here (near the USA border) while he awaits proper paperwork, lighting etc according to US laws. So, it will depart Canadian soil and head to USA, quite the life for this truck. I heard the siren go when it was brought in and had the typical European sound to it.

Just a few while out yesterday, I caught this Trans Ft McNamara Cascadia in Surrey

along with this KW T800 can hauler

and a Peterbilt bobtail

Burnco with this tri-drive Western Star flat deck just going out on delivery in Langley

and wifey caught this fine KW T400(?) in Burnaby this morning. It looks brand new, no name on it either.

Here are a few shots of a cool little truck -thanks to wife Judi- she spotted and shot this fine little M2 from Burnaby Works Dept that is exceptionally clean!The driver was very proud to have his clean truck captured on camera, hope he finds it on here!

and a second view

here is one I captured last week in my work neck of the woods, A Cascadia from ABF

not much more then that

We were able to get away for the weekend, first outing of the year and we opted for the Sunshine Coast, a part of the main land but only accessible by ferry. There are basically 2 main towns on this part with a few smaller ones up a bit further, the ferry leaves from Horseshoe Bay (North Vancouver) and goes to Langdale which is Gibsons. We set out Thursday night to catch the last sailing which was to be 10:55 but due to extreme volume ended up to be 45 mins late. That put us into Langdale for 12:20 and into the hotel by 1:00AM Good thing we had made reservations for all.
We woke up to this Mack MR rumbling and tumbling and banging as he collected the dumpster next door, open blinds, take shot!

this Coca Cola KW T880 from Coquitlam was in Gibsons the whole weekend

a 70's IH Transtar could only be zoomed in thru a fence, still looks to be working tho, maybe not as there is no license plate up front

part of the fleet of Len Wray Transfer UVL agent

a retired FL 70 water delivery truck from Sparkling Springs collecting moss

a 2nd gen Volvo finds itself in the same predicament

and in the back an LW Kenworth joins them, quite likely the other way around but....


BONUS SHOT
Near the water in Gibsons they are putting a new foundation on this old house, quite the operation, very hilly!


The area is quite small, Gibsons a population of about 5,000, we had it covered day one and went on to Sechelt for more....but later

HWY 101 is the way to go across the region, from Gibsons to Lund on the upper end. That requires another ferry from Earls' Cove to Saltry Bay and then on to Powell River and Lund. You can exit at Powell River to Comox which is on Vancouver Island. We stayed on the lower region tho as years ago we went on to the upper end, requiring more then a weekend for relaxation!

So, a few from 101 to Sechelt -pronounced Sea-Shell- this Cascadia rounds a bend heading south

catching this billboard entering the town, late we did find the truck seen here

as we grabbed lunch, this IH 4900 vacuum tanker went by, the Strait of Georgia in the background

down town, this White GMC Volvo from the same outfit heading south

this logger operating the Western Star opted to work the weekend, seen him a few times

this KW logger is off duty



BONUS SHOT
Really would have liked the door to be open of the Sechelt Volunteer F.D but this is the best I could catch of the classic Loadstar


We went back and forth both Friday and Saturday so there will be a few of each area up coming

Jim.

That only LW in trees looks very cool. It's too bad no one was around the fire hall , the  Loadstar looks to be in great shape.
