Oh....that Camaro IS sharp, manual or auto? Looks fast!

The Stavola Mack is nice, quite the wheel cut on the 7600!

Automatic. :( The nicest Camaro I've driven so far.....had it up a few miles over the speed limit  ;D & it sounded sweet too. :)

The Just Us W900 is interesting, seems unusual to see a daycab that far from home, and it seems it doesn't have saddle tanks, which is even more unusual. Nice rig though. :)
The Stavola Mack is pretty snazzy, the color scheme is simple but classy.
The Hassel Anthem is nice, I caught one in Myrtle Beach a couple weeks ago.

Thanks for the comments Wreckerman. :) I love catching day cabs far from home......I seem to notice that more down south then up here in the northeast for some reason. The Stavola Mack was special for me....been trying to catch one of their rigs for almost 20 years. :) Back in the day they ran Superliners which were an awesome site. 8) Hassel's another local outfit for me although Point Pleasant Beach is just a small beach town on the Jersey shore & the owners hometown I believe. First time I've seen one of their trucks not lettered as Tom Hassel Transport though. :o

Got a 6 pack from a dealer trade I did on Thursday 3-14-19 up to Keene NH. Hope some enjoy the pics.



Don't know how a guy could sleep under the I-95 roadway that goes to either I-80 west or the George Washington Bridge but that's where I found this Caravan Logistics Inc. Volvo VNL 760. The Oakville ON based unit was at the Vince Lombardi service area in Ridgefield NJ early in the morning.



B C Contractors Inc. Western Star from Troup TX at the Pilot off I-95 Exit 40 in Milford CT.



A few trucks down at the Pilot was this brokers FL Coronado Mk II on with Day & Ross of Hartland NB.



Transport National FL Cascadia from Oak Creek WI killing time at the Whately Truck Stop off I-91 in Whately MA.



International Transtar 4300 dump truck which appears to be in good shape on the market at a nursery on Rt. 10 in Swanzey NH.



PFX (Pittsburgh-Fayette Express) Pete 388 from Belle Vernon PA at the southbound I-95 plaza in Fairfield CT.

I guess he was happy to find a parking spot so would hope for the best.

I wonder if the drivers from the 50's and 60's complained about my generation as much as old hands complain about today's.
From what I can see D(n)R lowered their drivers standards when they no longer required the famous orange and black paint job.

BC Contractors Western Star looks great, nice to see an older series Star still active! Great catch on the Transtar too, the Transport National Cascadia has a different look, unique, very lopro style tires on the drives!

The old Star sure is cool, looks like it's been around the block a few times. ;D
The IH 4300 is cool too, don't see many of them around, particularly in such decent condition.
Is it me, or does the 4300 have a United Van Lines paint job?

Same colors Wreckerman but not the same style. I see where the idea comes from though. Nice shots Charlie, that Caravan Volvo looks good for a whitey and so does the Day & Ross. Rob I think you're right, caught a 567 for Day & Ross on my last trip to Winchester but it was all white too. And nice catch on the 4300 too Charlie, that looks like it's still in good shape for its' age.

The orange & black was an easily recognizable livery on the interstates. :) The white not so much....and it's blah. :( Glad I was able to get some shots of the old paint scheme over the years. :)

Last week was pretty busy as far as work goes and started off on Wednesday 3-13-19 with a swap down to Franklin VA.



Old FL cabover with temp plates sitting alongside US 301 in Milford VA.

I love seeing the old clip on air horn covers like the one on the blue & white Freightliner FL cab forward .
They were the first thing that I'd buy when I was assigned a new truck .

The old Freightshaker cabover sure is neat, but wow, that big bunk T880 is awesome! 8) :o
Great catch!

Glad you were able to get a shot of the Freightliner COE Charlie, glad it's still crankin'. And nice catch on the big bunk T880 too, although I wish he'd pair it with nice spread-axle trailer. Still a unique catch though.
