May '09-An International 8600 extended cab I drive for Central Transport, from the Vandalia, Ohio terminal.
Has a Cummins ISM and a 10 speed Autoshift. And chicken lights!
I've had this Mack MH from Ertl Toys in my collection for 25 years. This year I cut the roof deflector off and added the fat pipes; gives it a whole new attitude, doesn't it? Another diecast custom-old Kenworth K100 Aerodyne on stretched frame with stainless spread axle reefer I have an extensive fleet of plastic and diecast metal truck models in several different scales; I've been custom building for myself and a few relatives. Thought you might like this heavy-haul outfit.

Central Transport pups. I pulled doubles for almost a year. Other equipment at the Central yard in Detroit-P.A.M. and Universal Am-Can are our sister companies. Some of Central Transport vans at the Detroit yard.
Transport Robert Volvo from Quebec in Detroit. Lights of Zug Island in the background. Ford L8000-ex Roadway city tractor in Nassau, Bahamas, in 2008. Saw this Mack CH on St. Thomas in 2008
Here's my little truck with big truck lights! KW from K&L Chrome Shop-the Trick My Truck wagon!! (MATS '09) Neal Holsomback's Peterbilt at Mid-America show in 2009-hard to get a clear shot like this!
The International I normally drive is in the shop;
this Sterling is my ride at present (2010)
At the Yard in Vandalia (Dayton), Ohio with two different vans-yellow is a Hyundai, white is a Wabash. Just in from a wash on the road.
Almost looks good when clean!!!
Went on a cruise to Mexico! Took photos of trucks! This KW T800 I saw from our balcony on the ship while in Puerto Vallarta. When on a tour later in the day, it was unloaded and heading back south. This very sharp T600 was at the dock in Mazatlan, a very busy shipping port. Oct, 2010 The truck in front, a T600, looks like a former Atlas Van lines tractor. The ancient Western Star behind it, was clean and sounded good through an open exhaust! Oct, 2010.
Now I feel like I'm in a foreign country! This Mexican made tractor has local made hood, Diamond Reo/Autocar cab, and a Kenworth sleeper; couldn't get the make. Mazatlan, Oct., 2010. Sitting in an open air bar in Cabo San Lucas, I saw the reflection of this Kenworth T800 tanker across the street; when I ran out to get the shot, my family thought something was wrong! Oct., 2010. This is a DINA 401 from Mexico spotted on the dock at Mazatlan. It looks like an International 9300 and basically is underneath.
I caught this cool old Marmon at Mid-America in 2011, I believe. A rare shot where no one is in the way! I shot this Kenworth W900L at Mid-America 2013. I like this-not to busy, low roof, just enough lights to make me happy! (well, I could always add moreā€¦) This old Mack Superliner sure stands out in a sea of Petes and KWs. 2013 Mid-America.
Very nice Pete 359 "little window" at Mid-America. Man, it's amazing what a little paint and chrome polish does for an old truck-too bad it doesn't work on us old drivers! My brother-in-law and I both really like this K100E at Mid-America. I waited a LONG time to get this shot! And yeah, I'm old enough to have driven cabovers-there, I said it!
This was taken in April 2013 and was my last week driving this truck-a 2005 International 9400i. This was my favorite ride! Here is the 2005 International 9400i
at the fuel island in Vandalia, Ohio.
I drive a day cab similar to this one as of May 2013. I bought those lug nut covers at Mid-America in March 2011-in April the day shift driver I slip-seated with knock off most of the passenger side covers! Oh well!
