With the crappy weather we've been having this week I don't think I've taken 4 pictures. >:( Did get one today on a trip out to Riverhead Long Island that i'll post.

I thought the same thing when I saw it Jim & just had to get a shot. :) Not a lot of spots to get photos that far out out on Long Island so I couldn't pass it up. Yeah the rain has just been depressing....I've done a lot of long trips over the past 10 days and it just wears you out. Luckily I head to Florida in a week....looking forward to 3 weeks in the sun. :)

Yeah been a miserable week here with all the bad weather too. Hopefully that's in the past, flying to Georgia tomorrow and I'm hoping to see nothing but blue skies down there.

Nice shot on the wrecker, love the colors on it.

More pics from a Florida trip I made the beginning of January 2020 delivering a car down to Ft. Myers FL.



Lazboy Volvo VNL760 from New Tazewell TN at the Pilot in Pleasant Hill NC.



WPL FL Classic XL from Orlando FL taking a break at the Gold Rock rest area along I-95.



Bennett big bunk Western Star 5700XE at the Petro in Kenly NC.



Nobility Logistics Pete 389 from Parrish FL also parked at the Petro in Kenly NC.



Regal Boats Volvo VNR from Orlando FL sitting at the Petro too.



Express Mondor KW W900 stepdeck from Lanaraie QC at the Pilot in Kenly NC.



T&J Express Inc. Pete 359 from Deltona FL enjoying some downtime at Big Boys Truck Stop in Kenly NC.



Maybe the highlight of the trip was this classy KW W900A stepdeck leased to Jones Motor Co. Inc. from Spring City PA at the Sadler/Pilot in Dunn NC.

Idk about you Charlie but those Lazyboy Volvos have really exploded here in VA. I see them on occasion up here, and you can see about 3-5 an hour running up and down 81 in Roanoke. Glad to see them get some new Volvos too because for a bit they were running older equipment.

Other than that fantastic set with the Bennett Western Star, the Nobility Pete is my favorite along with that sharp W900A at the bottom and the others are nice too. Here's some good weather on your upcoming trips.

The Bennett WS, the Nobility 389, and the Express Mondor KW are all really nice, particularly the Nobility, that is one classy looking rig. 8)
Of course, the T&J 359 is cool, fine looking old rig there, for sure.
Nice catches all around. :)

I'm always partial to a Classic XL and that one does the part well!! The Bennett big bunk 5700 is outstanding and of course the Jones W900A top it off!!

Thanks Bob. I've caught & thought I've posted quite a few big bunk Starcars. They seem to be a favorite of movers, high end car haulers & outfits like Landstar and Bennett.
