Spartan Express from Greer, SC taken at a motel in Jackson, TN in early 1991. I came across this sharp O/O rig early one morning in the mid 90's at the S.B. I-95 rest area at the 169 mm. I believe they were out of S.W. Florida. Pullen Bros. is a long time nationwide reefer fleet based out of Sikeston, MO. This White/GMC was posed almost perfect while layed over in Palm Bay Florida in the early 90's.
M.W. & W.M. Donnell from Bellwood, AL. They hauled alot of processed chickens among other reefer commodities. I believe they shutdown their reefer operations, but continue to operate a fleet of dumps. I shot this at the Vero Beach, FL T/A back in the mid 90's. St Lucie Towing from Ft Pierce, FL was still operating this tough looking White Road Boss when I came upon it parked by a Ft Pierce restaurant in the early 1990's. White's 76 was a long time LTL stopping destination for coffee along I-81 near Raphine,VA. These two posed nicely back in Oct. 1993 to accent the familiar sign that greeted truckers.

I came across this Tom's Volvo/White while traveling on U.S. 63 near West Plains, MO in Oct. 1998. He was just getting ready to pull out when I asked him to wait a few seconds. Taken at the Petro on I-75 X-25 in Corbin, KY in the late 90's
Two U.S. Xpress Freightliner twins at the Petro on I-75 X-25 in Corbin, KY in the late 90's Estes Express IH 8100 was stopped right off of the I-40 and U.S..412 exit at Jackson, TN in Oct. 1998.

Fortin from near Montreal, Quebec was staying at a former Holiday Inn W. of Vero Beach on FL Route 60 when I had the opportunity to take this picture in the early 1990's. This awesome Mack Superliner was leased on with Independent Operator, Inc. out of WI. I was driving near our former home in Melbourne, FL in the early 90's when I saw him parked behind a shopping center and did an immmediate U-turn before the sun got any lower.
The N.B. 168 mm rest area on I-95 S. of Palm Bay, FL is the location of this O/O leased on with Schanno of St Paul, MN's livestock div. The timeline was the late 90's. Hoover Brothers from West Plains, MO was parked at a weekday cattle auction near West Plains, MO on U.S. 63 in Oct. 1998.

I found this one about 1990 at the S.B. 169 mm rest area on I-95 S. of Palm Bay, FL.
Proficient Foods from Orlando at one time did all the Denny's in this part of Florida, but in most cases they were acquired and faded into history. This WhiteGMC photo was from 1999 at Palm Bay, FL.

This classic KW for heavy hauler SSK from the Dallas, TX area was paused at the W. Memphis, AR Petro in early 1991.

This Publix WC was taken in the early 90's out back of the W. Melbourne, FL store.
Neal Holsomback Carpet Sales from Calhoun, GA shot at I-75 & Florida Route 6 in North Florida in the mid 90's. I believe This was the tractor Mr. Holsomback "tricked out" to make a real eye catcher show tractor out of. This was a very sharp rig even before he did all the customizing to it. Here is an intersting McDonalds supplier. PFD Lebanon. Prairie Farms Dairy out of Carlinville, Illinois and the tractor was from Memphis, TN. This was taken on U.S. 64 in Bolivar, TN in Feb. 1991. Caught this Roadway as the driver was coming out of a Hardee's along I-75 near Calhoun, GA in May 1993.
This Roadway was stopped at the Okahumpka Service Plaza at the Northern end of Florida's Turnpike. Notice the tandem trailer I.D. numbers in green on the driver's door.

This Ford Louisville was stopped near exit 173 in Palm Bay, FL in the late 90's Here is a well kept GMC Astro that the O/O leased onto Inway uses to haul light and bulky loads.

Sunbelt Auto Carriers Express from DeBarry,FL taken during the mid 90's at the former Speedway fuel stop at X-173 of I-95 in Palm Bay, FL Yoder, a small longtime livestock fleet from Ohio.

This Midwest Continental had just pulled out from under the refueling canopy at the Jackson, GA Flying J along I-75 X-200 in the fall of 1999. Ort trucking was a small Wisconsin based reefer fleet who sold out to and was merged into a larger reefer fleet a shortly after 2000. This one was taking a break at the Vero Beach T/A in the late 90's. Yacht Transport was layed over at the former Perlis Ambest truck stop located at I-75 X-97 just south of Cordele, GA in the hamlet of Wenona in 1999.
This Walbon Company T-800 was pulling into the Falcon Truck Stop on FL 70 by the Ft Pierce toll station to Florida's Turnpike sometime in the early 90's. You don't see very many R Mack's set up to haul cars so this Orlando, FL O/O was a good find in the mid 90's at the S.B. I-95 rest area at the 169 m.m. S. of Palm Bay, FL. This MacK Superliner for road contractor MacAsphalt a div. of APAC was parked near the approach end of one of the runways at Patrick AFB, FL thus the A-10-A in the background.
This was the only angle I had on this sharp looking Hendrickson out of Grand Rapids, MI I caught at the Falcon Fuel Stop on FL 70 & the Ft Pierce exit of Florida's Turnpike in 1996. They were a rare sight indeed that far south in the U.S.

Here's two shot's of what once was Anderson & Webb Trucking Co. Inc. out of Mt Airy, NC. They either sold out and merged with the former Thomas Produce Co. of Greensboro, NC and became ATW or both fleets were bought by a holding company and merged together to form ATW. Shortly after that they disappeared from the highways.

Tractor #1053 was shot at the General Lee 66 along I-40 near Cookeville, TN about 1993 or 94 and tractor #1232 w/ the ATW reefer box was posed perfectly for me by the driver at the Vero Beach, FL TA in the late 90's. They were a real colorful eyecatching fleet during their heyday of operations and one of my favorites.
