  1. Nicely framed shot. Are you sure the year is correct? Maybe 2013? I’m pretty sure the CP 8700-8800 series started coming out in 2005-2006.

  2. Kevin : My error blame it on aging eyesight the year is actually 2008

  3. It’s a very nice photo Bill! thank you

  4. Nice. And those vintage trucks awaiting restoration!
