I caught the TAK Trucking KW recently but it's a little over the top for me. I really do like the 9300 in such good shape. :) Looking forward to the rest of these pics........to me this is where the real show is. :)

Part 3 from the Papa John's lot.

Older T600 for Mawson & Mawson Inc. out of Langhorne, PA


Older W900 heavy hauler for Jim's Heavy Hauling out of St. Louis, MO


Sharp FL Classic leased to United Van Lines out of Fenton, MO


T680 for M & M American Inc. out of Mason, OH


One of my favorite trucks parked in the Papa John's lots, this beautiful W900 big bunk for Kerr Logistics out of Rochester, MN.  I absolutely love the color scheme on this; has a very aquatic look to it.  Except for some minor paint imperfections on the top of the sleeper, it's in great shape too. 8)


Sharp T680 for Craig Semple Trucking out of Vineland, NJ


Sharp 389 for Goods Transport out of Newmanstown, PA


Sharp Cascadia for Missouri Sorting Service out of Independence, MO


Nice Volvo VNL big bunk for J & D Transportation out of Velva, ND


W900 for O & I Transport out of Dearborn, MI


Sharp T800W big bunk for CDL Delivery out of Loraine, IL.  I also like the old Ford pickup sitting next to it, although would be nice if the paint wasn't so faded.




Sharp 389 Pride & Class for M-Class Transportation out of Cookeville, TN


Sharp T660 for ART Transport out of Van Buren, AR


Very sharp 389 for Ghorley Trucking out of McDonald, TN.  The driver of this truck runs a YouTube channel called "Life is Good."  I don't watch these YouTube truckers much at all, but happened to stumble across his channel a while back, before I attended the show and instantly recognized the truck.  I didn't get the best picture of it, but especially from what I've seen on the YouTube channel this is one classy unit. 8)

The 4th and final post from the Papa John's lot will be exclusively Landstar trucks, of which there seems to be quite a few of here every year.

It's a shame the guy with the white Binder doesn't have any friends who will tell him how butt ugly that thing is. :(

Gotta agree with Charlie on the white IH, looks like it climbed the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down. :P
The big bunk Star and the red Pete big bunk with the flames on the fenders are very sharp, particularly the Pete, it's gorgeous! 8)

Outstanding coverage Iowa, idk where to start. All the Landstar rigs are looking good as usual (except for the aforementioned 9400 abomination), as are the Petes/KWs. Love the reefer big bunks in particular, those are rare for me. Especially the blue one you mentioned earlier, that thing is gorgeous.

The Rokk W900L is sharp too, I really like the paint colors/scheme.

It's been way too long since I've last posted here. :-[  A couple of reasons for that which I won't get into much.  In late July I went out to Nebraska and Kansas for about a week (not many truck pics from this one, and I don't think I'll post the few I did take) and wasn't focused on posting.  Things were also crazy leading up to the trip, plus general laziness and, while I still check the forum regularly, less interest in being involved here due to the declining activity.  I simply felt like taking a long break from posting.  Anyway, at the very least I must finish this MATS coverage.
