Lesco Distributers 2019
« on: September 19, 2019, 10:12:34 PM »
Sept 13-14 was the 10th annual Lesco Distributers Pro Show and Shine. This was the third year that I had my truck entered in the show.The company I work for,Curry Auto Transport ,had six trucks entered this year.The weather ended being nice despite it being a very wet summer around here. The warm weather was very welcome as it snowed during last years show.
Start out with my truck and our lineup




our head mechanic got his cabover Freightliner finished the week before the show


really cool 1950 Kenworth


E.T.S. Transport from Crossfield Ab with his 1994 Freightliner

T-Roy Trucking from Perdue Saskatchewan brought three very nice 379 Peterbilts



Ron Esau with his Kenworth is a truck show regular,the old Safeway trailer has a living area in it


Interesting to see the Kenworth from Elizabeth Truck Center in New Jersey all the way up here in Alberta,it is owned by a guy in Ft McMurray ,he also owns the blue Superliner



Brayden Briggs Peterbilt 379

Mack Superliner with a newer Mack sleeper

old Hayes

How many people remember Wayne Rowe's Kenworth from the 1986 Canadian Shell Superrigs calendar ? I was very surprised and excited to see it roll into the show.The story behind the two bunks was that he collected classic cars and he used the second bunk for car interior parts.







another interesting feature was the rear fuel tanks are actually tool boxes that open up.

Your Pete is looking, as usual, 100% sharp. 8)
The 007 KW sure is cool, and the "mechanic's special" FL cabover is looking good.
The 50's KW is very cool, looks pretty original, and that Mack Superliner with the newer style sleeper is interesting, looks good.
Love the old Hayes, mighty fine looking rig there. 8)
The double bunk KW is very interesting, looks a little rough around the edges, but still a really cool old rig.

I'm shocked to see the ETC KW out there in your territory. :o Pretty sure I have a photo or two of it from one of the Englishtown shows.

                 I was very surprised to see it up here as well.I am not going to say I like it,it is overdone for my tastes ,but it is cool yo see a truck that has been in magazines and online as much as this one has.
Thanks for the compliment on my truck Wreckerman, just had it polished before the show.
Now a few more from the show
Another antique Kenworth ,this one a winch truck and more original


Father and son,the dad owns and works the Pete 359 and the white K-100 while the son owns and works the silver and blue/gren K-100 (old IPEX truck)


Danny McCarron's gorgeous Kenworth w900A


The W900A is just a toy,the W900 on the left is Danny's daily driver for Chinnok Fuels

Stingray from Calgary Pete 379

Horribin Contracting 1997 Pete 378

Tradler Ventures Kenworth W900L

Pakolm Trucking Kenworth with a stretched aerodyne sleeper

a pair of Kenworth W900A longhood, the teal one on the right used to work but now enjoys the easy life just going to shows,the blue/white and gold 1974 still works.

Thanks for the coverage on a cool show Rob, I do remember the Wayne Rowe KW well, I just seen it again (in my magazine article) last month when I was going through some older stuff, was special then and still good to see it surface again!

Your fleet looks great, the COE Freightliner looks awesome, congrats on winning best fleet in show!

Ron Esau's KW with trailer are outstanding!

Jim.

Nice display.
That one from Elizabeth NJ is pretty wild and has ended up a long way from home.
The Curry fleet all looks good with yours looking fine.
I never saw that double bunk KW in the flesh; only pictures.
Great coverage of the show.
Thanks for showing it.

               I have no idea what the green and blue Peterbilt is for or where it is from.It had a couple Seadoos loades on the back.It did have a small fifth wheel so maybe it is a RV puller.

That's what I thought too Rob, just a leisure unit....it did have Alberta plates on it IIRC .

Oh man, LOVE those 2 K100 Aerodynes. :o
The GMC General is nice, and the old Chevy wrecker looks great.
Really like that orange Hayes, such a classy looking rig. 8)
