I always enjoyed the South Of The Border billboard signs on I-95 , especially the ones that had 3D objects and animals on them .
"Only 100 miles to South Of The Border , Only 72 miles to S.O.B. , Only 44 miles etc . etc .

About the Cardinal logistics Inter, with the colour of the trailer I'm pretty sure that the truck is  dedicated to a Home Depot
contract.

I do believe you're right.
I caught it at a Home Depot in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. :)
Kind of like Lowe's having their own flatbeds, instead Home Depot would rather "rent" than buy.

I like the GMC Astro. 8) Up in my neck of the woods JB Hunt has the Home Depot account.

The truck itself is a daycab Volvo minus the original hood, and the hood that's there I believe is off an older Ford medium duty, like an F800.
I believe I recognize the paint on the hood as one of the local city schemes.
Probably the City of Myrtle Beach, or possibly Conway, South Carolina.

Ah....yes, that's it, wasn't thinking smaller series truck, like a 90's F 650 series, thanks

Here's a few more randoms.

First, a sharp Kenworth W900B for CMD from Conway, South Carolina.


An interesting CCC garbage truck.
Quite a fascinating body, being "circular".


A cool Peterbilt 377.


A very sharp Peterbilt 389.


A neat International Durastar for Nestle.
As a side note, the pickup behind it is actually being towed behind it, with a setup like a motorhome uses.


A nice Mack Pinnacle for Red Classic, headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina.


A nice Peterbilt 579 for Venezia, headquartered in Limerick, Pennsylvania.


A sharp Peterbilt 379.


A nice Kenworth T680 for Big G Express, headquartered in Shelbyville, Tennessee.


A very sharp Mack Pinnacle for International Motor Sports Association, headquartered in Daytona Beach, Florida.


A nice Kenworth W900L.
The Seminole paint scheme is (to me) pretty much the ultimate paint scheme on any "large car", regardless of manufacturer or year. ;)


A couple very sharp Peterbilt 379s for J2 Transport from Waltersboro, South Carolina.


A clean Freightliner Classic.


A sharp Peterbilt 379.


A very sharp Peterbilt 379 I would have loved to have gotten a better shot of. :(

Good set Wreckerman! Love the burgundy Pete pulling the dump trailer at the top, and the 377 is nice too. To be fair, all the Petes are good looking trucks. And the IMSA Mack Pinnacle looks fantastic, talk about a sharp setup.

Always nice to see what you come up with here, again some unique catches, the Motorsports Mack is outstanding! I would think the Durastar is getting delivered by a driver service, not common to see on hooked into a straight truck with body though!

Thanks!
The Pinnacle was super nice, I wish I could have gotten a better shot, but hey, something is better than nothing. ;D

Here's another random round.

First, a nice Kenworth T600.


A nice Freightliner FLD120 for AEB Trucking from Lilesville, North Carolina.


A bonus shot of a sunset over Randleman Lake in Randleman, North Carolina.


A nice Ford L9000 for Stone Grading & Septic from Graham, North Carolina.


A cool BMY dump truck.


A nice Mack Pinnacle for Alliance Imaging headquartered in Irvine, California.


A cool International LT for Smith Transport from Roaring Spring, Pennsylvania.
The blacked out grill is interesting, not a bad look, but it doesn't really fit that particular rig.


A sharp Peterbilt 389 for Peterson Trucking from somewhere I can't quite read the name of. :-\


A father and son Mack team for Triangle Grading from Burlington, North Carolina.


A cool 4x4 International 7400 farm truck.


A sharp Kenworth W900L can hauler.


Another sharp Kenworth W900L, this one bobtail.


A nice Freightliner Classic.


A sharp Kenworth T800.


A sharp Peterbilt 379.

The Smith Transport LT is a bit of a shocker to me. Over the past 20 years they've run FLs, Petes and even Volvos but I can't recall any Binders in the fleet except for a few Lonestars.

Great set Wreckerman!

Before I forget, I think that military dump truck is an AM General M929. Google it.

Nice catch on the Smith LT, I saw one for the first time on Thursday but couldn't get a shot of it. Yeah it differs from previous Smith rigs but as long as they don't switch to all-LT's I'm fine with it. And the FLD pulling for Walmart is still in great shape, nice shot! Also nice shot of the Mack tandem with the Superliner and the SFFA Pinnacle. And your highway shots were cool too, the Pete's and KW's look good.
