    I am surprised to see they are yellow and black. I have been seeing a lot of white colored in the north east

    There was a FedEx driver I use to work with, that ran into the back of another truck with one of those new KW's, about a month ago. Apparently, it's designed to angle the engine to the ground in an impact like that, and not enter the cab, it worked perfectly, and he survived but, with injuries ofcourse.
    Here's a picture

    I thought they were weaning the KW's and going back to Internationals... Must be a surplus somewhere....

    I really love the black and gold with the red wheels! Some might think its ugly but I think they look great, especially when they are washed up clean, I see some white ones running through the city and I don't like them.

    I think The Big E has some sharp looking equipment, I always have admired you all's look.

    I know the choo choo terminal don't have any new trucks. They still have trucks with the sliding rear window and the fan on the dash running schedules.
