Well, well, Jim,  I didn't see it till now! That would make that a long WB single axle, interesting idea! A light weight big truck! :)

Charlie, I don't know if they do, they don't seem to make it across to here that I can remember.

Jim.

Another set from the Show n Shine, starting off with another uniquely spec'd and painted Western Star 4900

similar specs in brown this time


the start of this script says "Why did I become a trucker" and the answer is

KW T680 mid roof looks good in black

and another Western Star short low bunk, similar spec'd in green

one more in a cool blue, interesting sleeper style. Most Western Star trucks I have ever caught in one show!  :)

here is a Western Star 4900 SBA from Transport Mario Alerie

Purple and grey make for a sharp KW W900L

simple but nice, a Peterbilt 379 in red

Western Star 5700, noticed quite a few turbo wings on the hood, acting as a bug deflector? Looks cool!

beautiful FLD Classic XL flat top

Peterbilt 379 in red/black

this was really outstanding to me, an IH 9900ix that has a look of Schneider's Meats, at least the colours were the same. The flat top adds to it's stance, very nice!

I liked it enough to get a 2nd shot of it.......and it was on the end of a row :)

this isn't your average Peterbilt.....but then again this isn't your average event ::)

we will finish the set  off with this one......


time to sort thru the next batch

Jim.

Charlie - Bakke does go down to the States. It looks like they've made it out your way too Jim.

Freightliner must be building those Western Stars pretty heavy duty.  Those look like Quebec bush trucks mostly. Maybe some from Ontario too.
Great coverage Jim and Jim.

Thanks Rob, I like the FLD Classic XL on their web site, looks great! Out of North Bay too yet, we flew into North Bay, just spent around a 1/2 hr looking around there on Sunday before we had to turn in out rental car, had I known that sooner I may have tried to find their yard.

Maybe I should check my pics, I may have caught one in Chilliwack a few years back, they do look familiar to me.

starting off this set is an FLD 120 Classic flat top

it's safe to say the 1903 is not the year of this bright orange KW T800

clean and tidy Peterbilt 379

a Peterbilt 378 day cabs comes up next

 extra lights, unique exhaust tips and  bright green paint puts this KW W900L in the show

this Kenworth W900 features a short tall bunk, self loading log grapple, tri-drive and tandem dolly with tandem logging trailer

Mack gets represented here with a Vision

really like the paint on this KW W900L

2nd gen Coronado looking fine

here we have a nice KW W900L flat top in 2 tone silver grey

80's style paint scheme on this 389 looks great

black/orange and all the bling gives this 4900 Western Star show status

getting this set going is a sharp Kenworth W 900 with wide steer tires and all

another look at this Peterbilt

Kenwowrth T800

simple but sharp W900L

Peterbilt 367(?)

Here is a KW W900L with 600 Cummins horses under the hood

Quite like this unique set up on the KW T880

tough looking Peterbilt 389

down low for this KW

Western Star 4900 SBA in blue

red wiper arms are just one of the unique features on this Seminole paint T800

this set starts off with a Peterbilt 389 with round headlights

here is a 80's flat glass W900 with the early aerodyne sleeper

IFS Freightliner FLD Classic XL flat top from Tilbury

The Seminole paint scheme is popular on these W900Ls, looks good

a long nose Western Star has a bit of protection for the front

a Western Star 4900 EX in black

the only COE in the show it self was this KW aerodyne I forgot about the FL COE, sorrry

Kenworth W900L with moose bars makes it look tough

a 90's Western Star with lots of black and lots of chrome too

more Kenworth, more moose bars


time to sort thru more pictures

Jim.

A few more , this Mack CL700 has a very unique look

a heavy duty looking KW W900L

a sharp looking KW T800H

early style sleeper on this KW W900L gives it an older look

a gorgeous KW 900

a KW T800 with a lift axle

a T880 with lots of accessories, can't say I see those my way. looks good

a Kenworth T300 as a sharp service truck

great side profile of a sharp 379

beautiful looking Freightliner FLD Classic XL



Certainly there is a lot to see with this event, after the last part of the show n shine, just outside the entry way, there is a staging lot where the trucks come into to hook into the loaded trailers, they team up in pairs and parade down the hill to the start line

I guess that portion come tomorrow....photobucket is just TOO slow tonight

Jim.
