The Karl's KW is nice, I always like seeing the patriotic rigs like that.
The Niswander Pete is really sharp, black and chrome, hard to beat that combo. 8)

Hard to beat that Triple C Express Pete, that's just a beauty right there. And I'm glad you got a clean shot of that Karl's T680, I've seen them a couple times but never gotten a clean shot. Love what they did with the livery on it. And that's one of the finer T660's I've ever seen, a rare breed indeed.

Hope to see the Karl's KW again......it's really a looker. 8) The T660 was a sharp truck but i'd love to catch the Bulldog Starcar with a trailer & an oversize load. :)

Snow's lookin' real good Charlie! All the usual suspects are nice (and grimy, which I love), and that FLD looks good too.

That first Frac tanker you caught is pretty cool, one heavy duty looking tractor! The old FLD still chugging along is worth the pic for sure!

Seems to be doing well according to the little chat I had with the driver. Jonathan is a dispatcher now. 8)

The T800 frac tanker is a cool rig, has a rugged and ready look, but still looks good. 8)
The FLD looks good too. :)

AG Trucking KW is outstanding! The old FLC is looking a little tired but always fine to see one around!

Nice shots Charlie, I think that AG Trucking W900 must run FL-NY a bit because I've seen him running north-south through here a few times. And I agree with Jim, even though that FLC needs some TLC it's still nice to catch 'em out in the wild. And nice catch on the new Volvo for Sargento, I've always liked their livery.

AG Trucking appears to be a 1 truck outfit & I've seen him quite a bit on 95 so i'm guessing you're spot on. I got a pic of his previous KW at the 75 Chrome Shop back on 7-3-14.....gotta say I like the green & black KW better. :)

I enjoy all of your photos but especially the ones taken in the S.E. truck & fuel stops .
I've spent years of my life in them and often parked for the night in the same spot as your photo .
