#9 in the last series (unknown 379) is with Elite Service of Denver PA..........can always recognize them with the stripes. In fact your catch is one of the trucks on their website page.

Great spot and action.
I hope you get to go there at some point this year.
Yah...cars in the way are part of urban truck photography.
I just say "Dam* Car!"

Thanks Charlie for that info, checking out their page it looks like they run a nice fleet. It's always nice to see big companies that take pride in their rigs. And thanks Rob, I got more where that came from, just need to get it organized better. It's a work in progress.

Glad to see some more of your photos. The RGM flatbed is cool, but man the Honey Locust Farms truck is really nice, think that is the favorite for me 8)

Thanks guys. Jon I see Honey Locust all the time, everything from reefers to cattle pots, and I have yet to see anything bad from them. All of their trucks look great.

Thanks Jon. :) My main problem seems to be devoting the time to editing and uploading them. Glad you like them.

I'm right there with you on that. I have two full vacation trips still to post from last year, but have been trying to edit my existing photos from previous years as I am in the process of putting them all on one hosting site rather than having both PB and Slickpic, and I just don't have a ton of free time to sit down and do so.

I like Flickr, works pretty well with Chrome and this extension I use where it will show you the full size pic if you hover over the image. Makes it easier to check out pics without leaving the main page, that's for sure. GL with that lol. I'm trying to share at least a set a day now, so we'll see how this goes.

Pete 378 for Fort Myer Construction Corp. and a Cascadia for Prime:                                                                                Pete 389 Pride & Class for VNK Transport out of Campobello, SC:


Worn out big bunk T600 for Mayflower agent Molloy Bros. Moving & Storage:                                                                 Crappy shot of a Ryder Cascadia pulling a USCG trailer:


Pete 359 for Tayman & Sons out of Pikeville, TN:                                                                                                           Western Star 5700XE for Johnson Horse Transportation out of Shartlesville, PA:


Pete 379 for Dynamic Transport out of Morgantown, WV:                                                                                                KW T800 for a local company:


International COE for an unknown operator:                                                                                      Pete 378 for Henry's Wrecker Service towing a roll off for Henry's Wrecker Service of Fairfax, VA:


Big bunk T600 for UVL agent Barrett, which has since been bought out by Suddath:

Nice shot Ray, that is definitely a good looking truck. Also we might need to bring in an expert on this, because I've never seen a 359 that had 379 style wipers. Maybe Tim can share some insight? Maybe it's a custom build.
