PB 579 #10024

I've seen two of these TMC 579's around Mackinac Bridge lately - both times I had no camera.   Today I managed to catch this specimen at rest, a bit dirty from the grimy roads.

Great catch Tim! I like it 8) Did you say they have a chrome-style bumper coming soon?

John,
Yes, Peterbilt had a 579 at MATS with a bright bumper.

Not as of yet that I know of. They are going to offer the "narrow cab" models along with the wider ones like the 579.

Just saw my first TMC 579 heading south on I90/39 near Janesville, WI yesterday afternoon. Was loaded with boats. Actually didnt look all that bad for the few seconds I saw it.

I would think the 386 is too popular at this point to even consider replacing it. Still a lot of companies buying it, Pete would probably lose a lot of $$ if they replaced it now.

No, I think the 386 will stick around. Looks like it needs refreshed though, compared to these new models, so I think they will do a little sprucing up on it here shortly.
