Yup. Autocar Mondays is still a thing around here. I had to get off my butt an go find this truck but I’m glad I did as I’ve been wondering about the fate of this rig for some time now. Maybe about 8 or 9 years ago I recall seeing this truck on a regular basis while driving to church. The majority of the time it had some sort of tanker behind it that I assume was hauling some sort of agriculture product. Possibly milk.
One fine spring morning while sitting in church attentively listing to the sermon this old beast came thundering down the road. I tried to ignore its call but I shifted a bit in my seat hoping to catch a glimpse of the truck trough the open window. I thought I had pulled a smooth move but out of the corner of my eye I saw my wife shaking her head with a smirk on her face. Don’t worry, she knew what she was getting into when she married me. 😉
Not long after this story the Autocar became a stranger to the roads. I’m sure it was still around but I never saw it. I did however begin to have regular meetings with its replacement, a generic white color Freightliner Cascadia. No offense to the Freightliner folk but it can’t hold a candle to this rig. Imagine my surprise when I happened across this old friend just five miles from house. Maybe now there we’re almost neighbors I’ll catch it on the roads again.
