Burlington, Vermont-based Dan Cohen bought this 2000 Freightliner FLD120 in March 2011 after it had been used in Celadon’s fleet since it was new. The rig features a 1996-model 410-hp Cat C12, which he bought in 2012 after the original C12 blew less than a year after he purchased the truck. He had the engine rebuilt after it blew in the fall of 2016. The truck still sports the original 10-speed Meritor transmission that was in it when Celadon bought it in 1999.

It’s equipped with a high-roof, double-bunk sleeper and is mostly no-frills when it comes to technology, Cohen says. For the past several years, he has been running it from Vermont to Wisconsin and back hauling general freight for Bellavance Trucking.
