Thanks guys!

Here's a batch from 8/10/17

First, a sharp Volvo for CAN/US.


A nice Pete 579 logger.


A slick Pete 389.
I've never seen fenders incorporated into the actual body of a dump trailer this way, is it custom or does someone offer this factory?


A very nice WS 5700 for Walmart.


A cool FL Classic that could benefit from having some aluminum wheels installed in my opinion. :D


A poor shot of a cool old KW K100 pulling for Modern Transportation.


A nice Volvo with an interesting trailer for Gray Metal South Inc.


A clean short nose FL Cascadia for Prime.
I may be crazy, but I really like the short nose Cascadia. :)


A very sharp KW W900L. 8)


A nice Pete 389 car hauler.


Lastly, a hood up shot of a really cool old Freightliner. ;D
I saw this pull out of the truck stop a few minutes later, but couldn't get a shot. >:(

First, a sharp FL Columbia for New World Van Lines.


A slightly rough IH 9900 for Dee Pee.


A KW T2000 for M&J.


Lastly, one of our old trucks that's now owned by a collector in town.
We've got it at our shop, doing some general maintenance on it, but overall it's in excellent condition.

Love that old Chevy tow truck, what a beauty! And, the FLC120 from the other day is very cool too!

I'm digging that Pete you caught with the weird fenders on the dump trailer. Pretty sure that's not factory but I can't say for certain. The Dee Pee 9900 is nice too.

The dump trailer is unique. Both East and Mac offer trailers with optional fenders, though not anything like that from what I have seen but I could be wrong. Also, that Classic with the steel wheels is a former Celadon tractor. They had several of those back in the mid to late 1990s.

Great stuff Wreckerman. My highlights are definitely the Superliner and that old Mack R model is neat too.

I always favor a Carlyle, interesting catch on the workhorse 579 from Carrier One and yeah, the Superliner is the catch of the day!

The Superliner is very sharp. 8) Reminds me of the one Sal C. ran out of Long Island. :)

Always nice to see a Superliner still working, and that one looks like it has an owner that takes good care of it!
