It’s not a trucking fan’s heaven, it is just a truck parking

So many hoods. So similar, yet so much different

A real show stopper and its proud owner

It has diesel Cummins engine, and all stuff just like real trucks!

Shiny!

These guys really love their trucks – this one has even frame painted in metallic!

I have noticed that most air filters were removed for better air flow and engine power.

Nothing is burning, just trucks warming up.

Beautiful Kenworth from New Brunswick

Everyone was super friendly. These guys revved the engine and made some smoke to help me get a better shot!

The only cabover truck in a race. And Freightliner Agrosy, was the last cabover truck model manufactured in USA.

And this Agrosy is a real deal. Considering the amount of additional cooling, it must be hauling really heavy loads in its every day life.

Beautiful paint on Peterbilt from Connecticut.

This New Jersey based Kenworth W900 is an oldie! Based on its front hood style, it must have been manufactures in 70s. Oldie but goldie!

This Peterbilt has spinners on wheels! Cool!

This tuck is from the most modified category, you can easily tell it from air intake on top of the hood.
