  • C8’s: Transporter To Florida

    Thanks to our “ltomn” who is driving his C8 from Florida to Montana! He captured this a few minutes ago at a truck stop on the Florida/Georgia border. Thanks, for more great news for 10 more real-soon C8 owners.

    More transporter pictures early on this foggy, cloudy morning. As he noted, it was at a Loves Truck Stop, and lots of loving coming to ten soon in-love-with-them owners.

        I'm glad I don't have to load those things on the truck and then drive them across the country. I know these guys do it all the time but, I'd rather watch!

          It is a tight fit for sure. I was many years ago following a transporter who had just picked up a complete load of new Mercedes at an East Coast port. Just as I was about to pass him on the New York Thruway, he blew a left front tire and completely rolled over onto his side into the center medium. Luckily he did a lot of sliding instead of twisting and turning. Two of us stopped our vehicles and ran over; miraculously except for a broken arm (that was visibly obvious) and his being in shock (he kept repeating “I heard and saw my front tire explore”), we stayed with him until the State Trooper arrived. Every car was destroyed, as of course was his truck and trailer. I too will pass on that profession but better than being a gasoline tanker driver.

              Let me add that only 1/2 hour later I spied two more transporters, identical to the pictured one, heading south in south Georgia. I can’t help but think that 20 more C8’s were bound for Florida. They were in the southbound lane and I didn’t pass them going north.

                Today, while motoring across Kansas, I saw an Accelerate Yellow HTC one with black top and black body strips. Also a Silver HTC with a black top, similar to my own.
