Thanks. :)

The plate # matches on the T800, so we have a match!
I caught it in Myrtle Beach, so they really get around.

Yeah that's a neat little T800 you caught, nice find Wreckerman.

The HX is one where photos don't really do it justice, I caught my first one two separate times last week and it looks better in person. Seeing it in photos gives it a cartoony feel though. That SFFA Pinnacle in your last set is my favorite Wreckerman, that's one of the few modern Macks still retaining that tough look.

Thanks.
I agree on the HX Partsman, they look snazzy in person but they kinda lose their luster in pics.
Some of the reason, I think, is the headlights. Those lights might look ok on an aero rig, but not a "large car". The new W990 suffers from lame headlights to. They need to stick with the double or single rectangles, like the W900 and the 9900 had. Looks better and are easier to replace to. :)

Alright folks, here's another random batch.

First up for your viewing pleasure we have a nice looking Link-Belt HTC-8670 for Duggins Welding from Winston-Salem, North Carolina.


An older medium duty F-series Ford.


A very cool unknown Kenworth T800.


A sharp unknown Freightliner M2 106.
Not your typical car hauler setup, but a very nice one.


An interesting unknown Peterbilt 388.


A Mack CH613 for Triangle Grading from Burlington, North Carolina.


A cool unknown Freightliner FLD.


A sharp unknown Peterbilt 389.


A very clean International Prostar for Landair, headquartered in Greenville, Tennessee.


And wrapping up this round is a typically sharp Peterbilt 579 for TMC, headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa.

This Includes Tow Trucks and Their Operators.

Thanks Jim! :)

Alright, here's another batch of randoms.

First, a nice Peterbilt 379 for TMC (thanks Paul for the ID) headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa splashing through some serious rain.


A Peterbilt 387 for Harrison's World Wide Moving headquartered in Chesapeake, Virginia.
Not an overly exciting rig, but Harrison's is a new mover for me.


A nice unknown Freightliner Coronado.


Squad 1 for Horry County (South Carolina) Fire Rescue looking good on its way to a call.


A clean International Prostar for Idealease headquartered in North Barrington, Illinois.


A cool Freightliner FLD for Bayou Ridge Transport from Dover, Arkansas.


A clean Freightliner Cascadia for Crete Carrier Corporation headquartered in Lincoln, Nebraska taking a well deserved break on Christmas Eve.


A very sharp Peterbilt 379 for Clapp's Transport from Julian, North Carolina.
The 5 gallon buckets on the stacks somewhat tarnishes the good looks, but that's what the straight pipes with no bends (at the top) will get you.  :P


A Mack Pinnacle for Smithfield Hog Production from Warsaw, North Carolina.


And wrapping up this batch (but with plenty more to come!), a nice Mack R model.

The first Pete is TMC.  Check the trailer flaps, also that's their tarp.

I thought it looked like a TMC truck, but wasn't sure, and I didn't think to look at the trailer.
Thanks for pointing that out!

The General & the Chevy are cool. 8) I've caught a Ford Aeromax like that before......some kind of race car hauler IIRC. :-\

Nice set Wreckerman! That Aeromax is really neat, as is the GMC General at the top. Always nice finding sharp older rigs still earning their keep.

That Aeromax is pretty sharp for sure and so is the General and C65.
