Thanks Jim! :D

As Photobucket is still down, I continue my search for a photo hosting website, my last post was a Flickr trial, and I did't particularly care for it, so today is a SlickPic trial.

Starting off, we have a nice International Prostar for East Penn Manufacturing, who are headquartered in Lyon Station, Pennsylvania.


Next, another International, this one a Durastar for Pepsico, whose headquarters are in Harrison, New York.


A dynamic duo for Hollar & Greene from beautiful Boone, North Carolina.
A nice Kenworth W900L.


And a spiffy (and rare for this area) Western Star 4900 SB.


Anybody need a rig?
The Diesel Man from Bennettsville, South Carolina can fix you right up with this nice 2001 Detroit powered Freightliner Classic XL. *Only* $24,999!
I always like seeing what The Diesel Man (previously DriveNow Trucks) has to offer on my trips to SC, always seems to have an eclectic assortment of rigs for sale. They also have a junkyard that I've wanted to explore for years, but have never had the time.


A triple shot: a somewhat tired looking looking Kenworth T800 for FedEx, who're headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, a Freightliner Cascadia for Old Dominion, whose headquarters are in Thomasville, North Carolina, and another Cascadia.


Doing some local home construction work, a neat little Freightliner M2-106 for Southern Builders of Alamance from Burlington, North Carolina.


A Mack Anthem pulling a pretty rough looking old lowboy.


A nice Kenworth T680 for Mabe's from Eden, North Carolina.


And wrapping up today's round, a cool (if a little rough) Kenworth T600 logger.
Couple of pretty hefty looking logs in that rear bunk.

That Classic XL for 24,999 looks pretty good from here!

Interesting batch for today.

Jim.

Thanks guys!
Jim, I agree, the Classic would probably make a good rig for someone.

Charlie, I really like seeing the H&G rigs too, snazzy looking fleet (except for those green fuel tanks).

Alright, on a cool, overcast day here in North Carolina, feels like a good time for a 10-pack. ;)

First up today, a cool Freightliner M2-112.


A nice Freightliner Cascadia for Estes, who are headquartered in Richmond, Virginia.


And for a little variety, an interesting RBR Enterprises Vector 350 fertilizer spreader/applicator.


A somewhat tired looking Western Star 4900.


A Peterbilt 379 with some interesting faux old-school accessories (359 style fender lights, round turn signals, etc).


A cool old Volvo WAH.
Off the subject, but every time I catch a WAH, I always think of the term "wah-wah" pedal from Rock 'n Roll music. ;D


A beefy Link-Belt HTT 86110 for Superior Cranes, who're headquartered in Rockingham, North Carolina.


A sharp Kenworth W900L for United Van Lines agent Oler Relo, whose headquarters are in Houston, Texas.


A nice Freightliner M2-112 for Southeastern Freight, who are headquartered in Lexington, South Carolina.


And lastly, a cool Kenworth T800 that apparently is a CAT dealers rig, and a Freightliner Cascadia for New South Lumber, whose headquarters are in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

I like the ETC Pete. :) They have a big presence in the Carolinas pulling both grain trailers and vans but I actually caught one last week with a tanker. :o The United KW is also very sharp.

Nice set Wreckerman. I've shot that W900 for Oler Relo probably 8-10 times in Alexandria, it's such a sharp rig. Every time I see it I feel obligated to shoot it again haha.



I like the old Volvo WAH too. It's in good shape for a carrier that old.

Thanks guys, I was very happy to see the UVL KW, I don't see all that many movers, especially sharp ones. :)

Here we are, middle of the week, seems like a prime time for a random round. ;)

First up today, a nice International 9400 for Watford Bob Wrecker Service from Andrews, South Carolina.


A neat little Hometown Trolley Villager for Coastal Carolina University from Conway, South Carolina.


A very cool Peterbilt 579 for Southern Pride, who are headquartered in San Diego, California.


A nice Kenworth T680 for TNT Hauling, whose headquarters are in Birmingham, Alabama.


An interesting 1953(ish?) Chevrolet Bel Air.
I'm not typically an old car guy, especially not Chevys, but this one was pretty neat with all the accessories.


A nice Peterbilt 579 for RSC Logistics, who're headquartered in Pooler, Georgia.


Don't know why, but I think these Maverick Cascadias are some of the best looking fleet Cascadias out there.
Anyway, a Freightliner Cascadia for Maverick, whose headquarters are in North Little Rock, Arkansas.
Also squeezed into the shot, a Kenworth T680 for EPES, who're headquartered in Greensboro, North Carolina.


A sharp Freightliner Coronado.


A Peterbilt 367.
Seems like these old oil field Petes pop up everywhere.


And lastly a "Dad Catch":
A nice Kenworth W900L for WDF Inc. from Midland, Virgina.
Move Over & Slow Down for Stopped Emergency Vehicles.
This Includes Tow Trucks and Their Operators.

Keep 'em coming Wreckerman, love that 9400i wrecker, there aren't many of those still around. And that's a unique bunk for that Southern Pride 579, it's nice not seeing ARI big bunks all the time. And I totally agree on the Maverick Cascadia, I feel like they go the extra mile with the painted body parts/fairings and you know that color is more expensive than your typical plain white.

I have to agree on the 9400 tow truck, sharp  and rare unit!! The trolley bus is certainly unique and I do like the Coronado!

The old oilfield Pete really looks good pulling a grain box. :) 8) I also like the 9400 wrecker. ;D

These ex-oil field Pete's can end up looking good. With the paint bumper and single stack, I wonder how that bumper would look with "old school" angled hash marks or chevrons on the bumper?

Thanks a lot guys, glad y'all liked the 9400. I was very happy to catch that one on several different levels; 1. I don't catch many wreckers 2. 9400s are pretty rare, especially nice ones 3. a 9400 wrecker is a rare bird indeed.  ;D

Mackinac, I'll bet the Pete would look good like that, maybe with an old school paint job on the truck itself, too.
With the long frame and the small sleeper, along with the single stack, they definitely have a cool, old school look. 8)

Alright, on a chilly and very windy Sunday afternoon, feels like a good opportunity for a random 10 pack. :)

First up, something a little different that the Canadian folks may recognize:
An ex Canadian National EMD SD60F, now working for the Aberdeen, Carolina and Western Railway out of Candor, North Carolina.


A nice Mack Pinnacle for Associated Petroleum Carriers, who are headquartered in Spartanburg, South Carolina.


A nice looking Peterbilt 379.


A sharp Freightliner Coronado.


A cool and interesting Freightliner FLD for Bullard's Towing from Wilmington, North Carolina.
An FLD wrecker is unusual enough, being a tri-axle is just a little extra coolness. :)


A nice looking Kenworth T880 for Dean's Wrecker Service from Raleigh, North Carolina.


A sharp Peterbilt 389.
Don't see too many daycab 389s around here typically, nice too see a (regionally) unusual configuration of a common truck.


A typically nice looking Mack Granite for Hilco Transport, whose headquarters are in Greensboro, North Carolina.


A clean Freightliner Cascadia for Pallet Express from Liberty, North Carolina.


And last, but certainly not least, a really cool Peterbilt 379 big bunk. 8)
No idea what that load is, but I'd guess something to do with mining possibly...

I don't know that words can describe how jealous I am you shot an ex-CN widebody. Been trying to find one for years lol. Overall just a really great set, the SFFA Pinnacle tanker, the Pete 389 below it, the especially cool FLD wrecker (those are also hard to find it seems) and the two other Petes are all unique in their own way.

The CN is familiar........nice shot,the FLD wrecker is a great find, looks like the old Louisville on the hook, is not doing so well!! I do like that Coronado too!

I think the load on the heavy haul might be part of a top soil screener.
