What a great finale Gerald.The Argosy looks the same colour as my truck was today white with salt spray. We did not have a white Xmas but looks like we will have a white Easter if this week is anything to go by.       Bob.

I've really enjoyed this collection of photos from your "way back" machine Gerard. :) Great idea for a thread & an even better way to see changes in the industry over what's really a short length of time.

Thank's guys for your  comments. It was  a  good job to feed this thread almost daily for more than three months but I am pleased I have done it. Maybe next year , when the bad season will be back , I will  start all over again with my negative from year 2001. To close this thread for good , here is the last pic I took at the end of December 2000.  It's  was a Pete leased to Savoie, a temperature controlled hauler based in Manseau Qc.

Thank's for the comments.  I have already started to scanned  some of my negatives from 2001.  I have about 130 strips of 24 negatives. I should start to post  some of them   when it will be to cold to make outdoor  pics. Maybe in December.

I have always liked this Freightliner pulling a lowboy but I have never been able to identify it.  Someone  have informations ?



Hi Gerard,

This was a nice thread to go through, This FLD-120 at the time would of been Unit #97 from H.O. Bouchard, They had a bunch of FLD-120's back in the day, But, Only Two still remain in the Fleet today and that's Unit's #87 and #91, I've also seen Units #92 and #96 some where on this forum as well, But, I am unsure as to if the same person took the same two picture's of both Units, Is an FLD-120 from the H.O. Bouchard Fleet is like a Peterbilt 379 from The R.F. Chamberland Fleet, They are now a thing of the past and only very few remain in both fleets today, As for the Aeromax from L.Bernard& Fils would of been known as the Aeromax Hardrunner, They only made a number of the Hardrunner's, The Jenkins Ford Aeromax from the post you made on March 9th back in 2015 would of also been another Ford Aeromax Hardrunner

I had planned to scan  the  near 100 strrips of films ( about 2000 pics ) I caught in  2001. I have  only done about  a little more than half of that now. I will continue and keep this thread open. Here and then I will  add some more pics. For today, I will have  a special Freightliner COE series I caught in the first week of July 2001.

Real Grondin was big saw mill and they had a  trucking division in Beauce County. The fleet was all Mack but  in the spring of 2001, the Mack dealer was repossessing more and more trucks. They may have decided  to replace them with Freightliners. I have just seen this Argosy and not long after it was the end of the trucking division.
