And the winner is....

Gentlemen, please join me in congratulating the winner of POTM October, charlie! A fantastic choice for POTM imo, congratulations charlie!

Is that a Mercury sleeper on the back? Finding an OTR R model still working is a rare catch charlie, this is a well deserved winner.

Charles,
    Nice work!! You are the Weiner!! I believe that's an old Kramer. They were from New Jersey & hauled chocolate for Hershey.

Thanks mooby & Gary. ;) First time winner.......feels good. :) Yeah that's an old P.E. Kramme unit out of Monroeville NJ.........they've been a Mack fleet forever but todays units aren't as colorful anymore. :( Prior to the farm gig I saw this unit pulling a flatbed for Liedtka Trucking from Trenton NJ about 10-12 years ago. ;D

Charlie,
   Sorry for the incorrect name. I have a couple of photos of them on my photo pages. I believe an R-model & a Ultraliner.

Cool shot Charlie, got my vote this month.  Both the truck and surroundings fit the theme, an oldie, plus kind of an odd combo.

You also got bonus points for the post title.... ;)

Thanks Paul, are Mercury sleepers only the chrome ones?
