Hello folks, I'm back with another pack of pics, today's being 20 rigs of various purpose.
First today, a Mack Granite.
Next, another Mack, this time a nice Pinnacle for Noble Oil Services, whose headquarters are in Sanford, NC.
I'm very familiar with the costs of paint and graphics, so seeing those comparatively flashy graphics on the trailer suggests to me that they actually take pride in their equipment and want it to look nice. And it's all clean, too.
A Kenworth W900L.
That paint is right on the edge of burgundy and purple. I'd say it leans more to the purple side - burgundy is hard to get right.
A Freightliner Classic XL.
It could do with a wash job and some paint, but not a bad looking rig.
A *very* unusual catch - a tricked out and clean Volvo.
Specifically a VNL for LTLT Transport from Greensboro, NC.
Not bad looking, overall.
A Freightliner Cascadia for Premier Transportation, who're headquartered in Forest Park, Georgia.
That's an unbelievably ugly Starbucks. Looks like something out of a dystopian future movie.
A nice Ford F-550 for the NCDOT, who're headquartered in Raleigh, NC.
A very sharp Peterbilt 379.
Another nice 379.
A nice Western Star 4700 for Petro Choice Transport, who're headquartered in Superior, Wisconsin.
A nice Ford F-350.
I love this style Super Duty.
A nice Peterbilt 330 for W.O. Whitaker & Son from Gibsonville, NC.
A nifty RAM (Ram, Dodge, Dodge Ram?) 4500 for Harkey's Hauling from Mt. Pleasant, NC.
Note the "Oversize Load" sign's ingenious setup - metal letters mounted on steel grate, with hinges so the ends can fold in when not needed.
Also, I'd like to see how that rig on the bed works.
Two shots of a relic. A very tired Ford CL9000. Still in use I believe, but just as a yard switcher, though.
The DOT number is out of service.
Wonder if they'd be willing to part with this old slab-cab? I may have to look into that...
A cool Kenworth T600 for Unichem from Haw River, NC.
I'd bet that's the original paint.
A nice Freightliner 122SD for Foss Recycling, whose headquarters are in La Grange (no, not that one), NC.
Another Freightshaker, this time an FLD120.
A sharp Kenworth W900L for CC Waller Jr Trucking from Troy, Virginia.
And lastly, another KW, this time a T680 for Aventura Transportation from Yonkers, NY.
Looking back, I wish I'd gotten the whole Pilot sign in the shot, to record the prices.
