    He was parked right outside of the local Western Star dealership.
    Nobody was around, and I have no Idea how long Prime will be visiting for. It was a nice surprise for me though!

    I thought so, QLformer! :) 

    Let's hope so, Nevermore! (I like E. A. Poe too!)

    Thank you, Captain Slayer!

    Well.....if no one is around.......and if they left the keys in there....then....


    ROAD TRIP!!!

    Traveling cross-country in a Optimus Prime rig, stopping at quirky small towns along the way to solve random mysteries and/or assist random people.

    I thought that was clever too, Hazekiah.

    That is both, a noble and a deviant idea, MetalStorm!

    An incredible looking truck. Thank you for sharing. I am WAY too far away to be able to see it myself.
    Seeing the exhaust pipes for the first time "up close", I wonder if the 4 additional ones actually do anything or if they are just aesthetic. They lack the side vent hole things (no idea what the technical term is) that the outside ones have.

    Yea, I'm not sure if they are all connected either, KWFlange. I feel incredibly lucky, as a fan to be trated to such a royal visit, right where I live.

    They'd have a hard time keeping me out of that truck.. Western Star Optimus is beautiful... love the sticker... would have been great if they'd have Grimmy standing by. :lol

    It's funny you'd say that, moreprimeland. Last night after work I was driving by the local Western Star dealership again, to see wether Optimus was still there. Guess what, he still was, and this time a lady came out and told me that because they were closed, they took the display barriere away for the night. I assured her that I'd respect the truck, and not touch it :)  .

    A side note: I think I've finally figured out, what OP is doing here. The way he is facing, is in line of sight of a Bikini Baristas coffee shop (which I did not take pictures of), which is located kitty-corner from him, across the street.
    I don't blame him . . . the constant fighting made him tired, and now he's come to the Pacific Northwest to fill up on some good coffee. :D

    How long will it be there?

    Do you have a CDL license? If so, ask them if you can take it for a drive, worse they can say is no.

    Other than that, see if they will let you get inside, maybe you can take some interior pics.

    MetalStorm, I don't have a CDL, but I doubt they'd let me drive it! I could potentially ask to see the inside.
    It's been there a whole week, Autovolt. Next time I go down into the city, I'll report on my findings, ok?
