BLB, Hemmings - what next?

A little self-congratulatory pat on the back. In the past few weeks Truckfax has attracted the attention of Hemmings Auto Blog twice - with rare trucks - namely the Fargo and Mercury items.
Today's Biglorryblog has some of my photos of Peterbilt COEs. BLB's daredevil editor asked for COE Petes and he was inundated, but was good enough to publish some of mine.
Click the link on the left and have a peak. Otherwise this is a teaser:

North American Van Lines Alberta Ltd of Calgary was using this Pete COE and drom for military personnel re-postings in the summer of 1986. It carried no less than 8 license plates, one for each province between here and Alberta, plus the Northwest Territories!
The truck was laying over in Dartmouth, at the MicMac Motel on the MicMac rotary-a favourite spot for moving vans. Sadly the motel and vans are no longer there-nor is the MicMac Rotary (not so sadly).
