Sharp 359 at the tire shop, the S-Series IH is cool, looks good hooked into that lowbed! The 41ish Ford snub-nose looks like it would be a project......interesting find on a mixed load!

Wow...Mr D you've done very well on this last update. 8) 8)
I'm sure I've caught that AMJ several times over the years but they must have updated the graphics on the box.
Scottlyn have more variety than just Peterbilts in their fleet now. They don't seem to have a Peterbilt dealer anymore at their location.
Is Horseless carriage losing drivers or are their older trucks being sold off? Drivers move around so much today.
Transport St Michael is the carrier that took over Jules Savard.
How do you get all those trucks sitting by themselves just asking for their pictures to be taken?

Thank you Rob. :) I seem to find more ex Horseless Carriage trucks on the road nowadays then company trucks. Could be turnover or maybe just getting older units off the road. :-\ As for the photos i favor hitting truck stops and rest areas in non peak hours if i can.............seems early morning and anytime after 4 PM the lots are all filled up and trucks wall to wall. Can't always do it but that's my plan.

I really like the J.Huber Pete 379,looks nice and clean ,especially with the stainless reefer behind it.The 359 at the tire shop is a cool catch as well.

Staying at the Circle C in Canadys SC for a moment I came across this 4 axle International 9300 pulling for D&C Trucking from Monroe VA.



Another fine looking International "S" series belonging to Roddi Love Grading Inc. from Denver NC parked at a motel in Hardeeville SC.



Challenger Pete 567 from Cambridge ON at the Pilot in Hardeeville SC.



Waiting at a jobsite in Port Wentworth GA was this awesome Brundage-Bone Mack multi axle concrete pumper.



Eagle Transport Corp. FL Cascadia tanker parked at the TA in Richmond Hill GA.



The next 3 pics were taken in Brunswick GA beginning with this big bunk Western Star on with DSLT Inc. from Knoxville TN taking a break at the Love's.



Also at the Love's was this Pete 579 tanker for QLF Transportation of Dodgeville WI.



2 axle FLD boat hauler operated by WEO Trucks from Lebanon MO at the TA.

Like every one of your shots Charlie. The only thing wrong is the sleeper on the
Landstar Volvo should be on the Volvo I drive.      Bob.

You caught some really sharp trucks in the last 2 sets Charlie, quite like the S-Series wide cab short nose, not many survivors around, the Sercombe Coronado MK l is wonderful, the FLD hauling the wide load is a true old workhorse and the big Mack Terrapro pumper is cool too!

 The workhorse FLD with the wide load was interesting. ;D I asked the pilot car drivers what it was and they said they didn't know. :-\ A couple of hours later in Florida I came upon a wide load (big box) & the diver said not knowing was fairly common, especially with government loads. He said he's asked a few times and the answer was "a big box". :D

Lots of great stuff here Charlie, another great S Series find, the Challenger 567, and the 7 axle concrete pumper is fantastic. Wish I could get a clean shot of one, I've only shot that one in South Carolina like 4 years ago. Frock Bros is always a nice find, great shot on that Reliable T680, Sercombe is always cool and the FLD heavy hauler is really neat, I can't recall seeing one setup like that before.

Ooh, some super duper cool stuff again!
The D&C IH is cool, don't see very many of those, especially a tri-axle.
Speaking of IHs, the Roddi Love looks cool, too.
Really dig the big Mack pumper, really cool rig there, and the FLD is neat, too.
The 2 KWs starting the last batch are both cool, and the Ulysses Pete looks pretty good, too. 8)
The Guy M. Turner (I think) FLD in the last shot is really cool, interesting load there, too.
With those gray wheels, looks like it could've originated with Yarbrough, another heavy hauler (their site: http://www.goytc.com/ ) , they have ran FLs for years, and that definitely looks set up like one of their rigs.

Finishing up the pics from a Florida trip with a bunch taken on 9-25-19. Hope you've enjoyed the ride a long.



Blue Max Transport Mack Anthem flatbed from Charlotte NC at the Pilot in St. Mary's GA. I'd never heard of this outfit until 1-2 years ago now I see them all over the southeast. :o



Creech Horse Transportation FL Cascadia from Troy MO at the Pilot on US 301 in Waldo FL which is pretty horse country down that way.



Al-Amin Brothers KW W990 from Crete IL hooked to a spread axle reefer at the Petro in Ocala FL.



Dhesi Enterprises Ltd. Pete 389 stepdeck from Surrey BC a long way from home at the Petro in Ocala FL.



Sterett Heavy Hauling 4 axle Pete 567 from Jacksonville FL laid over at the I-75 rest area in Ocala FL.



Good looking FLC for Ranch Truck Caps & Lids parked at the 75 Chrome Shop in Wildwood FL.



Not sure which van lines this old International is working for due to 2 names and DOT #s but it made for a good photo op at the Pilot in Wildwood FL.



Last pic of the trip was this Pete 359 running for Dinges Transfer & Rigging of Monroe WI camped out at the Love's in Bushnell FL.

What about that Paul Sagehorn K100 that was in POTD?

Looks like you had a fantastic trip Charlie, damn I'm jealous. That Al-Amin W990 looks fantastic with that reefer, looks like your cup is overflowing now haha. The Sterett 567 is cool too, I love those link-axle Goldhofer heavy haul setups. And you finished strong with the 359 reefer, the Maher Van Lines IC COE (never seen that before) and the FL Classic.
