Really appreciate the comments guys!
Ray, Iím not sure if the Volvo is a VNX, but it does look like it.

Hereís the last few from 10/10/17.

First, a sharp Volvo VNL for the Greensboro, NC Fire Department.


A very sharp Western Star 5700 for Hardy Brothers.


A sharp KW T880 dump for Carolina Transport.


A very sharp KW W900L for DayNight.
I really like these custom hoods on W900Ls.


A neat looking Mack chip hauler.


A sharp IH 9900.


Lastly, a very nice Pete 379 for J Marie Hauling.

Interesting catches, I agree about the 379, very nice! The Mack Rawhide chip hauler is cool too.

Thanks! ;D

Hereís a few from 10/15/17.

First, an older Pete car hauler that looks like itís been sitting for a while at the abandoned Sagebrush Steakhouse parking lot in Mebane, NC.


The best shot I could get of a cool old KW W900.
Appears to have once been pulling for Striker.


A sharp Pete 389 hauling chipper truck bodies, such as an Asplundh truck would have.


A sharp Pete 386 for Atlas Van Lines.


A very nice IH Lonestar pulling for J.B. Hunt.


A cool set-forward axle Pete 377 that is apparently hauling carnival equipment.


A sharp Volvo VNL also hauling carnival equipment.


A cool old Ford crane truck for Mitchell Roofing.


A really cool old White 7400 coe with another equally old White keeping it company.


A neat old Chevy crane truck in the same yard as the Whites.


A cool old Ford dump.

Nice catches! The Hardy Bros. Western Star is really cool, glad to see it doesn't have the ugly aero wheel covers they were trying out. The 389 with the chip truck parts belongs to Keane Thummel Trucking. They're from Iowa, and have a lot of nice Peterbilts, including several of those 389s.

Awesome shots with all the oldies being my favorites. The old Chevy crane truck looks like it was set up for pre-cast concrete or block back in the day!

The Western Star with the Hardy Bros trailer actually belongs to Dude Smith Trucking from Mt Airy, NC. They run a really sharp small fleet. I've been trying to catch one of their Western Stars for a while. Awesome catch!

The old Volvo seems to be an ex- Spartan tractor. Spartan was part of the Roadway Regional Group of LTL carriers.
