    Old pic just showed up. Father-in-law(1969), my company also in mid-70’s. Also the first type semi I ever drove! No fun for a newbie especially in the snow/ice.

                I retired after 39 years trucking so I know what you mean. More so when looking at all the fallen flags that have gone by the wayside.

                    The right lane was the Mclean lane. Named after the now defunct LTL carrier.

                        As s kid growing up across the street from RCA in the 60's-70's, I remember the trucks rolling into the shipping/receiving driveway. Sun, Moon, REA Express, Navajo PIE, Yellow, Carolina, Time DC and many others. Seems they all had Detroit 2 strokes with the occasional gas job.

                          Sorry guys, I didn't mean to be late to the party. Left on Sunday with steel to Pa., then truck bodies to Ky. From there it was "slinky" coils to Ga., and home with a load of steel for Pa. on Monday.

                            I also invested in a few "toys" this week. I am tired of giving the truck wash $50.00 of my hard earned money every week.

                              Yes, every time I stop at the truck wash it's a minimum of $50.00. If I want any extras it's more. And they do a crappy job to boot.
