As I was out driving for work down highways, biways and unstriped blacktop roads I saw a semi trailer from a trucking company I had not seen in years. It had the marking of Campbells 66 Express. A running camel was painted on the side with his tongue hanging out and snort marking coming from the nostrils. I remember the camels name was Snortin Norton. On the trailer was also painted “Snortin Norton sez, humpin to please.” Growing up we ran up and down RT 66 from Springfield MO to Chi IL and I saw them all.
What common carriers that are now a memory do you remember?
Consolidated Frieghtways / White Frieghtliners, white in color with green/red stripes. I remember long ago these tractors had air starters.
P.I.E. Pacific Intermountain Express. These guys always pulled doubles. They also triple but I never saw it.
Navajo/ Thier logo was a brave looking straight at you but I have recently seen the Navajo trucking name return with a Navajo princess for the logo.
Do you remember any?
