    Hi ttman, good to see you on here, now I have a favor to ask.

    Nobody believes me about ABF's team division. I need you to post a picture of one of them "rooster cruisers" if possible. It was a Sterling with lights all down the side of it.

    Anyway, glad you made it. Get snuggled in and enjoy the ride.

    wow, I had trouble finding that one. At least abf takes care of the teams!


    and then there were the team tractors that they let drivers take home to clean:

    at one time they tried sleeper teams in the yard, they even put in special seats so they almost never had to stop.

    I like that ABF doesn't mind if you guys put stickers on their units. As much time as we are in them it is always nice to have a personal touch. I have a Mr. Horsepower sticker on the passenger side window of my USF Holland Volvo. I got a warning letter for modifications to my equipment. I put twin coffee can stacks and a hood scoop on it. I didn't think it was a big deal, but they are hard-a$$es about anything fun.

    Also, that throne of a driver's seat isn't factory is it? I imagine that would be an ABF add on. This keeps the numbers of moves up. Spotters are also short enough to fit through most drive-thru's, which is really handy if there is a fast food joint near the yard. More production. I like it.

    the only problem I can see is they might have to stop a couple of times per shift to empty the holding tank? Maybe they just let it drop out onto the ground though? (jeeez!)
