Stainless Steel Simulators actually.
Terry for some reason I missed this message when you posted it.
Do those bolt over a steel disc wheel?
They certainly look like 60's era polished steel wheels.

Rob,
   Yes they do, and the odd thing about it is that if you just put a little effort into it, you can find 6 Alum wheels, clean them up and have them mounted for not much more than you will spend on the set of 6 simulators.  Smith Bros. has simulators on our big wrecker, but only because the wrecker builder (B&B) installed them on the finished truck which was a demo that they bought.  I am not a fan of simulators, up close I think they look cheap, they get dirt and stones in behind them, they can rattle.  Now that all being said, I have 16.5 simulators on my motorhome!

Diesel-Fumes, nice trucks! That Kenworth looks familiar for some reason or another.....

By the way, on Page 1, is that first Aerodyne an ex-Werner truck? I swear it says Werner on the whale tail.

Also, does anyone have any pics of Jevic's K100's? I heard that they had them, but I had no idea they used Aerodynes, and I'd love to see one!

Thanks for the nice comment on my old home away from Home. also to answer your question, that is an old Werner tractor or tractors sitting there. They are owned by an old lady who once had a trucking company with her husband. When he died, she just parked them there and thats where they still sit. also, Jevic use to run a lot of k100's along with quite a few other company's. There tractors where your basic fleet version.  Mine had everything you could possibly get on it , when they specked it out. Sure ran a lot of miles with that truck and enjoyed all most every one of those miles. Having the hiab crane on the tractor , really made me heavy. I weighed 12,000 on the steers alone. Did make it ride and handle nice. but it also gave me an extra tingle when I had the two steer tire blow outs.

15 stops in New York city









Picking up a load of new Hiab cranes in New Jersey for a back haul to Alliance Ohio



Then the following weeks trip was to central Kansas to South Texas and then on to the super dome in New Orleans for a product show.  (hwy 180 heading east towards small town of Snyder Texas)

That k100 from largecar mag is incredible. On A road trip I took a couple days ago I saw two working ones that surprised the hell out of me, one was A white post 1985 areodyne and the other was a blue pre 1985 areodyne, wish I'd gotten pictures.  :|

 :-o Those are all great photos. The truck with the checkered flag painted on it makes me wonder how they service the engine because that cab looks like it would be kindda hard to tilt since there doesn't seem to be a break between the cab and sleeper extension. Any ideas?

Just a quick question, what are the covers over the radiators for?

Are they to regulate temperature in real cold weather. I have only ever seen one truck in Australia with it on it.

As it can get to 40'c odd with over 90% humidity here at times in Queensland we have more trouble keeping them cool not hot.

Bingo.

They are used to keep the engine warm so it doesn't get too cold and stop operating. It's not as neccessary on newer trucks, but on the old ones it was an absolute must to use those.

This is one that probably should disappear.  He was sitting up behind the closed down Shenandoah Plaza in Old Washington, Ohio back in December.  Check out the marker lights on the visor.
