Truckin' for Mutts 2015
« on: May 22, 2016, 02:13:04 PM »
I went to my first truck show last November in Ladysmith, VA. It was a small affair, most likely because the original date was postponed due to a threat of a hurricane that never showed up, then the makeup date rained all day but the show had to go on, so I went anyways. I only stayed there for a couple hours, the mood wasn't great due to the steady rain but the 30 or so trucks that showed up looked good. Anyways, here they are:

T880 for Sullivan's Towing & Recovery of Fredericksburg, VA:



T600 nicknamed "The Grinch" working for University Corp of Columbus, OH:



Sharp o/o W900:



Nice O/O 359:



Clean 389:



Nice SFFA Mack Pinnacle for David Anderson Sawmill of Mineral, VA:



Sharp o/o aerocab W900:



Nice 379 in memory of Tom aka "Jaws":



Sharp Western Star dump truck for L.L. Carter and Son of Ruther Glen, VA. They had a large presence at the show:



Clean L9000 for Wilson Seay Trucking of Spotsylvania, VA:

Sharp 379 for Alsop Trucking of Fredericksburg, VA, which was also well represented at the show.



Another nice Western Star for LL Carter and Son:



Western Star is definitely the truck of choice for LL Carter and Son:



LL Carter and Son's 1988 Freightliner FLC nicknamed "Long Legged."



Group shot:



Clean W900 for LL Carter and Son:



This sharp 379 was one of my favorites, it's an O/O setup driven by a nice guy out of Summit Point, WV. Nicknamed "Left Lane Produce Train":




Another clean 379:



Another clean 379 for D.A. Allen Farms of Champlain, VA:

Late arrival, this lease operator for RCS Trucking & Freight of Bealeton, VA is another of my favorites. I think either he or the red/silver 379 took home top prize:



Couple group shots:




Another late arrival 379 for Walnut Hills Farm of middle Tennessee:



Sharp Freightliner COE for B&M Trucking of Callao, VA that was another of my favorites:



Late arrival flatbed wrecker for Sullivan Towing & Recovery:



One of my favorite group shots:



Late arrival long wheelbase FLD for Alsop Trucking nicknamed "Stretched Out on Faith":



Right behind him was another sharp rig for Alsop nicknamed "Hard Knock Life":



One last group shot to wrap it up. There were more late arrivals which you can check out on their FB page, there's also a couple shots of the L9000 and the '88 FLC with their hoods down on it:

Thanks tery. This was definitely a working trucks show, the only show rig was the '88 FLC owned by LL Carter and Son, which also had the most company rigs there as well. I see them semi-often up north in northern VA too and they always have a clean fleet.
