Not everything needs to be a walkup roster shot. 
Oh I agree 100% Paul but I usually like to get the trailer in the photo too. Since my little point & shoot Canon died last year I don't take many on the fly pics or non roster shots but photo ops like this Pete 359 I don't pass up. ;D

You might want to tell the Idaho Potato guy you found his truck, he's always looking for it in the commercials ;D Great selection though, the Lanita KW is awesome, that paint scheme is very cool.

Wow! Great set Charlie, love the Black Ice Pete, the Pride & Class's are always nice and I like that United Road FL114SD. I will always have a fondness for ex-Grayson Mitchell rigs as they were super common in NoVa back in the day and now I'm stuck with P&S Transportation's boring rigs a lot.

Wow, that Pride and Class is......well classy ;D I like the 114SD's set up as car haulers, they seem to be quite popular with them.

That 114SD does look quite cool set up that way, and for me too, the Pride and Class is awesome with that trailer.

The Pride and Class looks even more classy with the stainless reefer.

Just got in a couple of hours ago from 2 weeks visiting family in North Carolina & Wisconsin. Enjoyed every minute of the drive through mountains in West Virginia and farmland in Ohio and Indiana. :) I'll sort out some pics in the next day or so but wanted to post this First Class Services Pete 389 tanker taken at the Hinsdale Oasis on I-294 when we were leaving Chicago on 5-18-17.

Continuing with some pics from a 2 week vacation the Mrs. & I took from May 5-19. 15 states..........2700 miles.........good food & drink.........great visits with relatives.........not hardly enough photos. ;D


TGM International KW T660 from Eagle Pass TX at the Pilot in Kenly NC on 5-9-17.


Red Giant Promotions Diamond Reo at the Petro before the truck show scheduled later in the week.


Chris Walker Trucking Pete 359 from New Columbia PA parked in the back row of the Petro.


A surprise catch for me was this Dabco Transportation KW W900 from Tuckerton NJ which is only 20 minutes south of where I live & the KW is a break from Cascadias they've been running lately.


D&Y Trucking FL Classic flatbed from Houston TX.

Great stuff Charlie, love the Chris Walker 359 and the D&Y Trucking FL Classic with the 389 headlights is a unique look too.

I like 'em all; the TGM T660 stands out as a favorite to me though.  Also the D&Y FL Classic looks interesting with the 389 headlights; it doesn't look right to me though and the bloated front fenders don't help either.  At least it otherwise looks pretty sharp.
