I've seen JC heading east through my area on occasion with shrink wrapped loads of Corvettes.  I got to talk to a driver at a rest area a while back who told me that they come from the assembly plant in Bowling Green Kentucky.

This rig was passing through Washington PA back on 4/19/14


These two were running together and also passing east through Washington on 10/25/14.  The second power unit is ex-AAG (Allied), but any thoughts on the blue body?  E&L?

Great shots! Thanks for the info too, I snapped this admittedly terrible shot of a unknown hauler taking a load of Corvettes through Hershey, PA when I was there in Sept. 2014. I always liked to assume they were personal gifts for the execs of Hershey but I'm glad to know the real answer lol.

This photo (from the main site) was taken at least 15 years ago at the old Dallas Pike Truck Stop in WVA.  The rig is a Ryder/Commercial Carriers unit.


Ryder /CC was taken over by Allied Auto Group, which is the company you photographed.  The shot below is a Ryder unit with the AAG banner.


Then AAG, or certain assets, were acquired by Cooper, I believe as part of AAG's bankruptcy.  The unit I shot above is an ex-AAG now with the Jack Cooper name on the door.

Cooper has quite a colorful fleet with their own green and orange, Allied's green and white, PMT's baby blue and DMT Trucking's dark blue.

Does anyone know who the light blue and white Sterling used to belong to?

Also, I've been seeing yellow WAH Volvos with white ramps.  All of these units have a circle containing the letters "CIC" and a number.  Any idea who used to own these units?

It's a Mack thing. you wouldn't understand.....

I believe the light blue units were all PMT trucks, they had gotten quite a few Sterlings before being bought out. The yellow Volvo's sound like ex-Ryder trucks to me.

The light blue and white were PMTs. The white and bark blue trucks like above are trucks built for PTS just before they were bankrupt. Other Dk Blue/white trucks came out of the Swift/Blue Thunder fiasco. There are still some late-90's Volvos running for JC.

That LOHR headramp is plenty strong and note this rig uses no hydraulic cylinders, the decks move on long screws.

Thought I would add these two Allied Auto Group rigs, since they were purchased by Jack Cooper
Sterling/Lohr on I-71SB near Louisville, KY in March, 2013


Volvo WAH on I-71NB near Louisville, KY in March, 2013
