The Western Star straight truck looks unusual being a flattop like that.  Otherwise, nice catches as always here; I like the Classic Carriers Coronado best.

That Star does look odd set up as a straight truck, unique to say the least!

Kenworth T680 for Navajo Express from Denver,CO with a new looking Digby reefer.



Another aero kit around and on the drive wheels..........Wonder what kind of fuel savings they get with that.........

I guess I will answer my own question. Swift claims 1.5%, flow below claims 2.23%........
