Ah back in 2009 (Choose the April 2009 streetview to see it) when Labatt still had their old Western Stars and the gold coloured B-trains.

@TruckSimChris and that's why I like them.

Here's a bunch of trucks I've found further down the I-70.

@Skoot That structure under the trailers is an aerodynamic device that reduces drag by deflecting air around the trailer axle assembly. I actually wish that SCS would add that as an option to the owned trailer in ATS.

Thanks for clarifying @supersobes. Looks ugly if you ask me, but eh.
