September first

It's September , it's time to return to school. I did that during more than 50 years as a student, as a teacher, as a school principal, as a school board administrator.  This truck is from  le Centre de Formation en Transport Routier (CFTR), a division of the St-Jerôme School Board "  specialized in driving courses for trucks , bus and heavy machineries.

I am kind of curious. Why do you need to have a twin screw stand up sleeper with all the bells and whistles in it to teach people how to drive a big rig? Is it because that is what they are going to jump right into when they get their license? ( I think not in most cases )
I think it is because they are repos and are cheap to buy or lease. I don`t think it gives the trainee a true feeling of what it can really be like out there.
JUST MY OPINION ;D

That's exactly what they do. Plus,it's hard to believe but a lot of the trucks that CFTR owns were actually donated by Volvo,Peterbilt,International ect. The St Hyacinthe brach of the CFTR just received a brand new Peterbilt 579 a couple of weeks ago...

Sept 7, the Langley Cruise In is the largest outdoor car show in Canada and there are light duty trucks included. This is a retro IH snub nose that was of interest and is a truck
