Cartage truck shot in November.


Eastwood Wood products have an older Century class straight job.


This GMC cabover, IIRC, was with a trash company for loading roller bins.


Black & McDonald run this bucket lift truck.



That's all for this update.......

Another "worker bee"....T800 Kenworth from Tandet. I'm surprised there are no Hazmat placard holders.

Cool thread Rob, straight trucks have a neat look and some very interesting applications to them! We have Spicers here too but you have a tandem, nice truck!

Updated August 21 2015.

There are some trucks I see frequently but have a hard time taking a picture.
This Manitoulin straight truck is one.


It's clearly a single axle with an air lift . The paint is non standard and I wonder if it is a broker with a special run of some sort.

This Western Star was parked at my local shopping mall.
O/O Steve Palfrey.

Cool little truck; a very small bunk (for now-a-days) and a lift axle.

Very interesting indeed, looks like the side opens up roll up door style!

I was looking through some of my older Photobucket collections, not exactly sure when I took these:
Somewhere around 2007-08.

Bateville Canada

He was making a delivery at Skinner & Middlebrook.

Avenue Moving. The last time I went past this company, the building was empty.


Burnbrae delivering eggs.


I haven't seen this truck for a long time...


Another Egg hauler.


Chinese vegetable delivery truck.

( I know the truck isn't Chinese - it's in the Mississauga Chinese Centre)

Both these carriers are Fallen Flags....the straight truck from a company called B.R.E.S.T. which didn't have a good reputation.


From 2008
Ryder rental equipped with a reefer.


Weetabix - British breakfast cereal sold in Canada.


Lanzarotta - Vegetable distributors based in Mississauga.


I'll probably find more.
