I think we go easy on the "no Paccars", it opens up a "single out the truck you don't like", next it moves to those who don't like Volvo's to claim their anti truck make on another contest? It would be better to go with "no bling" or "factory stock only",  that way every maker would qualify and those who own these brands aren't put in the corner of shame. Just my opinion on the subject!

I know it may all be in fun but sometimes it creates a wrong vibe to those who don't understand, different countries or what ever the case may be?

Jim.

Well for one thing I didn't say no Paccars: I said no w9's or 359/379's.  Why? Because they are wildly overrepresented in trucking culture. There are other trucks out there to take pictures of!

But, if you want some kind of brand-neutral generic line,  I'd say no long nose conventionals with dual exterior intake cans.

Secondly I don't think this is going to set off a wave of brand bashing.

What do you want us to take pictures of and submit for October.
A simple category please.
I knew there would be some flack letting you post late.
That;'s the once and only time.
This month's submission must be entered by October 28 2018

Let's decide on a topic.

I understand it's only for fun and nobody here gets paid to run this. I'm relatively new here and my interests are pretty narrow. I also hope that OSO picks something that both US and Canadian truckers can photograph.

Idk if it was me that said no Paccars but to clarify that wasn't the intent at all. Just no 359/379/389's or W900's. However, I leave those decisions up to Rob as I am not the authority on the subject.

Rob, Rob, Rob.... ;D I was trying to be collaborative. But since you asked, my POTM category for October is:

"Classy Unconventionals"

Bring us your Mack R's, Your Kenworth T880's, your Freightliner Argosies and your International Prostars and Fleetstars.....BUT, please leave behind your 'large cars.' (That means any long square nose conventionals with dual air cans, or any truck with big Texas bumpers, drop visors, thick straight pipes or a cosmetically stretched frame.)



P.S. Might I suggest posting the submission deadline on the potm topic posting from now on.

Simplified version: it's an open category without large cars.

Technically speaking, you just disqualified every truck with a hood on it.
If it's not a conventional, it's a cabover or other.  :-X
The first rule of the road is:
"If anything can happen, at any time, it will!"

Actually I think Oso's unconventional thinking worked out pretty good (for once  ;D). Looking through my photos I came across tons of pics that weren't Large Cars and often go overlooked..........it was hard to single one out for an entry.

Thanks.......I think.  I was going too say that I am impressed by the entries so far.

....Now maybe I'll enter something that was actually manufactured within the last 20 years.

Would a 567 count as unconventional? It seems like a blend of classic and aero.
