Review and Photos by James Yeager James Yaeger II Thumbnail

One of early childhood’s greatest enjoyments is when truck drivers blasts their horns when they pass by. I remember many car trips were my brothers and I had a contest to see how many truck drivers we could get to honk their horns and I laugh when I see my kids doing the same thing many years later. And for getting large deliveries of perishable goods across the country, the refrigerated Freightliner is hard to beat.
