Thank you very much folks! :D

Here's another random 10 pack.

First up today, a heavy spec Peterbilt 567 hauling what appear to be large slabs of granite and marble.


A Freightliner 114SD vac truck.


A cool Peterbilt 579 for E.W. Wylie, who're headquartered in West Fargo, North Dakota.
Love that trailer, I very rarely see any Wreaths Across America rigs.


A Freightliner FLD.
Pretty unusual (at least in my area) to see tri-axle FLDs.


A (very) pink Mack Anthem.
I'm typically not a fan of pink rigs, but this one is done pretty tastefully.


A nice Peterbilt 389.


A Freightliner Cascadia for Unifi, whose headquarters are in Greensboro, North Carolina.


A sharp Mack Pinnacle for Falling Oak Timber from Asheboro, North Carolina.


A cool International LT for Estes, who're headquartered in Richmond, Virginia.
Don't know why, but I like Estes rigs. Maybe it's the red wheels, just that little extra "pop" of color.


And wrapping up today's batch, a sharp Kenworth T800.

+1 on the Estes rigs Wreckerman, I've always had a thing for them because they put in a little more effort to make their rigs look nice. The 567 slab hauler is nice too, there are a few areas up here that have similar spec'd 567's too. Nice shot on the Wylie 579, I haven't seen that WAA livery for them yet but they've really exploded up here, it's not uncommon to see multiple in a single day. The heavy hauler FLD is unique too. And the SFFA Pinnacle is nice too, seeing them makes me wish they were the more popular Pinnacle instead of that uglier SBFA aero one. And the 389 is sharp too.

I'm really liking the two wood chip haulers here!

Thanks very much guys! :)

Alright, on a very hot day here in the Carolinas, seems like a good time to have another 10 pack. :)

First up today, a typically clean Freightliner Cascadia for UPS, who're headquartered in Sandy Springs, Georgia.


A sharp Kenworth T680 for Hollar & Greene Produce from Boone, North Carolina.


A Peterbilt 379 leaning into a curve.


A nice Kenworth W900L with a matching reefer unit.


A Freightliner Cascadia for Averitt, whose headquarters are in Cookeville, Tennessee.
Nothing too interesting, just thought the billboard trailer was kinda neat.


A tricked out Freightliner Columbia.


And two for Heniff, who're headquartered in Oak Brook, Illinois.
First, a nice Peterbilt 579.


And a sharp Peterbilt 389.
Appears to be hauling Chloropicrin: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chloropicrin


A nice Western Star 4900 logger.


And wrapping up today's round with an unusual: a Freightliner FLC112.
Don't see too many of these. Not a bad looking rig, really.

I like the 2 Heniff tankers.....they seem to have a big presence along the east coast the last couple of years. Hollar & Greene has been one of my favorite fleets but I sure do miss the hoods they ran. :)

I do like the Heniff tankers too but that FL112 is very cool, a survivor! Too see a Columbia these days isn't all rare but certainly to catch one well cared for and with some bling is, sharp truck.

Thanks fellas, I was very happy to catch the 2 Heniff rigs, don't see sharp rigs for them or those container tanks too often.
Charlie, I have actually caught 2 W900s for Hollar & Greene in the past few weeks. And an unusual looking Western Star... I'll post those shots eventually. ;)

Anyway, speaking of posting shots, here's a Tuesday 10 pack!

First up for today, a Freightliner Cascadia for Modern Transportation, who're headquartered in Sewickley, Pennsylvania.


A very dirty Peterbilt 379.
He was stopped in the turn lane, not sure if he was broken down, or more likely considering the area, picking up some equipment from one of the local farms.


And something a little different, a cool Ford Aeromax L9000 for McCall Brothers from Charlotte, North Carolina.
Always nice to see an Aeromax, especially working, even if it does look slightly... worn.


A sharp Pierce Dash for the Whitsett, North Carolina Fire Department.


And now a series of "Dad Catches".
First off, a nice Freightliner Cascadia for Queen Transportation from Hickory, North Carolina.


And some shots from a mixer "graveyard".

What's left of a Mack RD.


A wrecked up Mack Granite and a decent looking International Paystar.
I'd assume the Paystar has mechanical issues, it "looks" ok.


I'd assume this line is in service, but maybe not.
An International Paystar, a Mack Granite, another Paystar, and at the very end, a Mack RD.


Back to my shots now, a very rough Ford CF7000.
Don't see these often, and rarely see a truck actually working in such tired condition.


And to top off today's round, a sharp Peterbilt 337 for Corner Cars Towing from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Going with the Aeromax to start along with the mixers, interesting even to see the "down side" of the workin trucks! The Ford Cargo is getting hard to fine in service too!

That Aeromax still looks great for its' age. The Dash engine is cool too. And your dad got some nice shots on the Chandler rigs too.

Nice to hear Hollar & Greene is still running hoods. :) I can't resist all the mixers....whatever condition they're in. 8)
