    Went to the Train Show in San Diego this weekend and picked up four new rigs. The guy was selling them for $4.00 ea or 3 of them for $10.00. He only had 4 left so I asked him what about 4 for $12.00 and he said okay so I got 4 of them for $12.00

    I might leave them as is or maybe re-paint them for a diffrent company, not sure yet. heres some pics of them tho

    Wow, some really good pictures here. I haven't gotten anything to put up on this thread, but I'm waiting on some Old Dominion decals for a little in joke for my family. I don't know wether to go with cab-over or hood trucks though...:rolleyes:

    I dont believe Ive ever seen Cabovers with Old D's name on them before. I would go with a Mack CH 603 (promotex model). I see most of the Old D trucks with Mack and Frieghtliner cabs around here.

    Josh: Thanks! We've had the UPS trailers for a while but nothing to pull them with, finaly got an Atlas tractor..I remember seeing these Fords pullin UPS trailers back in the day.

    Your new trucks look good as is:thumb: but would be a good start to your own gravel or coal hauling company..:twisted:
