Part 5 from the Show and Shine.

T600 for Victory Logistics out of Cincinnati, OH.  Some of the chrome on it looks pretty nice, but other than that it seems to be an ordinary nondescript beater. :-\


379 for Pyskaty Bros. Trucking out of Lafayette, NJ


T660 for United Road out of Romulus, MI


389 for Taylor Transport out of Cartersville, GA


Somewhat cartoonish 379 for CRST Malone Inc. out of Trussville, AL


Older Western Star with a for sale sign in its window


Really cool Pride & Class 389 for MSM Transport out of Huntington, IN.  This small reefer company is based not terribly far from me, so I see their trucks around, and they've definitely got sharp units with some really neat paint schemes to boot.  However, this is the first time I recall one being entered in a truck show.


Stunning W900 Icon called "The Duke," for Fleenor Bros. Enterprises out of Carthage, MO.

Another nice set! I really like the look of the Pyskaty Bros. 379, I think it looks cool with the side of the bumper color matched but chrome otherwise, and the color is cool looking IMO. That older Western Star is really cool as well, looks in awesome shape. The MSM Transport is definitely sharp, I agree, the paint scheme is super nice. But the favorite for me is the Fleenor Bros. Kenworth. They have had some really cool KW's there the last few years, and this one is no exception. Just super cool! 8)

I have to agree on the Fleenor; they're one of my all time favorite fleets for sure.  I love fleets like that that not only run nice looking trucks, but also keep things interesting by having a variety of cool paint schemes on their truck, and Fleenor is a prime example of that.  They have a bunch cool pictures of their various trucks on their Facebook page.

Part 6 from the Show and Shine.

Unidentified 379 painted by Davis Designs


Another unidentified Davis Peterbilt, although I think this one is a 389.


W900A for IMT Transport out of Garner, IA


362 for Evan's Detailing & Polishing out of Chilton, WI


W900 big bunk for Lifetime Nut Covers out of Britt, IA


Unidentified 359


K100 for Hurricane Specialized out of Hurricane, IN.  No DOT numbers or anything like that that I'm aware of, so this probably isn't a working truck.  Design wise, although not completely stock, it was one of my favorites though.  I know things like the big bumper, straight pipes, and 15 lights on the roof may be controversial, but IMO that looks perfect on this truck for some reason, and still has a very nice clean look to it.

The first Davis Designs Peterbilt is really cool, it features a color scheme that was one of Peterbilt's factory color options back in the 1970s and 1980s, looks cool to see it on a newer one. The K100 is a favorite as well! Hurricane actually recently purchased that truck from what I have seen, it used to belong to a guy out of Georgia, who had it at the show a couple of years ago and has since sold it. It definitely was not a working truck then. Normally the trucks Hurricane shows are not working, but you never know. They definitely raised the stance a bit to make it more factory, which I think really makes the truck look cool.

Enjoying them all so far, my favorites of late are the older Western Star, the Turner Car carrier is outstanding and the Daily Delivery Star lowboy.

Been seeing a lot of photos of the Koolway and Jade online, great pics of both. The Jade is super nice, the color scheme just looks very cool! 8)

Yes, that is a little snow you see there on the Coronado.  This spring has been frustratingly cold as polar air has repeatedly slipped down from Canada to pummel the midwestern U.S., and a snowstorm went through Louisville a couple days before I went down there, and there was still a little snow left on the ground on Friday morning.  Then driving back home I went through the tail end of a snowstorm just south of Indianapolis, which was heavy enough to significantly slow down traffic, and I passed by about a dozen slideoffs or accidents between Louisville and Indy.  IN LATE MARCH.  And just today there was a little snow accumulation here in northern Indiana this morning... winter just does not want to go away this year! >:(

Part 9 from the Show and Shine.

Very nice 389 for Hammett Excavation out of Dodd City, TX.  I just love the colors and the aggressive yet not overdone look of this truck. 8)


379 for Eight Oaks Inc. out of Middleburg, VA


389 for R. Jones Trucking out of Avoca, NY


R. Jones also had this W900 on display.  I love the colors on this one; it's a shame it doesn't have a stock grille, and 389 headlights, which if you ask me just look silly on a W900.


One of my top pics from the show was this W900 Icon for Basse LLC out of Hinton, OK.  Everything is done just right, and the detail on this thing was really amazing.  I still can't get over how freaking perfect this truck is! 8) 8)




567 for Taylor Transport out of Cartersville, GA


389 for Pete Transfer out of Mineral Point, WI.

Great pics! Glad you were able to make MATS... I really, really need to make it over there again soon! Looks like there were some nice looking show rigs there this year as well. Btw, glad the snow went away... ;)
