J&S transport cars for the general public as well as dealerships and auto auctions. While picking up cars at DAA Northwest in Spokane, WA, one of our drivers spotted this: The USAF Thunderbirds at a nearby airshow. Our drivers not only get to experience the beauty of the natural world as they cruise down the highways transporting cars for our customers, they sometimes run across some pretty interesting events, too. While traveling down US 90, our driver Sam Nixon passed by Fairchild AFB, which was hosting an airshow featuring the Thunderbirds.
Life on the Road
Pictures of the interesting and beautiful sites our auto transport drivers encounter as they deliver vehicles all over the United States.
J&S drivers encounter many beautiful and interesting sights as they travel America delivering cars for our customers. From the wacky to the weird, to Americana, to flora and fauna, our drivers see it all. Some of our transports take us out to the west coast where scenes like this are possible. Taken on the Oregon coast, this is one of the more beautiful Pacific sunsets you’ll ever see. If you haven’t been out to the west coast to experience the Pacific Ocean and take in the breathtakingly beautiful scenery it offers, you should remedy that right away. Watching the sun set into the ocean is one of the wonders of the natural world. Photo by Danny Lindstrom.
J&S Transportation’s auto transport drivers are often away from home for days at a time as they travel the highways of the US delivering cars for our customers. Being away from home can be difficult for anyone, but you can ease your mind a little with a home security system like this one! The garden gnome ninja! Photo by David Maxwell.
Summer in the American West means fire season. As the snows of winter melt, and the showers of spring subside, vegetation growth takes off. When the dry season hits, this undergrowth is prime fuel for wildfires. If you live in the West, it’s a fact of life. Sooner or later, there will be a wildfire in your vicinity. Encountering a wildfire is one of the lesser known and uncommon but valid hazards our auto transport drivers encounter from time to time as they deliver cars across the US. But never fear; our guys have the good sense to avoid the danger and not put your vehicle at risk! Photo by Sam Nixon.
Driving through Portland, OR, one of our drivers came across this: a group of floating homes in the Portland Marina! Not houseboats, floating homes! Pretty neat! These houses are along Marine Drive in the Portland Marina of the Columbia River. If you Google Maps the area, and use the Satellite feature, you can see a whole bunch of these floating home developments. We think it’s cool, but have to wonder how they fair when the river floods. We’re sure they planned for that contingency, but still would like to know the logistics of how they stabilize these homes. That being said, it must be soothing to be rocked to sleep by the motion of the river as the water flows past. Sounds quite relaxing and peaceful. Photo by Charlotte Rodriguez.
As J&S’s auto transport drivers travel the highways of the US delivering cars for our customers, the encounter many beautiful and interesting sights and scenes. And every once in a while, they get spot some of the native fauna. While traveling down I-90, one of our drivers was lucky enough to spot this endangered species, the iconic Grizzly Bear, on the banks of the Gallatin River, near Three Forks, MT. Photo by Ron Kukus.
If you happen to be traveling down US 95 in Idaho near the Nez Perce Reservation, make sure to stop by the town of Grangeville, just outside the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forest. Grangeville is the home to the Graneville Elk Horseshoe sculpture. The Grangeville Elk is made up of 600 used horseshoes and weighs over 600 pounds. It is the brainchild of artist Bud Thomas, who specializes in wildlife sculptures made of used horseshoes. You never know what slice of Americana you’ll find as you travel the highways of America, and our auto transport drivers encounter quite a bit of it! Photo by Hector Farias.
If your traveling down Interstate 84 near North Powder, Oregon, make sure to take in the picturesque Blue Mountains, a mountain range located in northeastern Oregon and stretch into southeastern Washington. Neat fact: They are home to the world’s largest organism and fungal mycelial mat, the Armillaria solidipes. If you’re not in a rush, try the Blue Mountain Scenic Byway for a scenic 4 hour trek through the wilderness. Photo by Kevin Davis.
Our auto transport drivers submit photos of the beautiful, interesting, weird, and wacky sights they encounter as the transport cars across the country for our customers. Sometimes, however, they simply send in pictures we think are flat out cool or beautiful. This is one such shot. We don’t know exactly what it is about this picture, but it is damn neat!

Our “Life on the Road” photo gallery showcases the sights our auto transport drivers encounter as they travel the highways of America transporting cars for our customers. Some pictures are of the wacky, some of the weird, some of the many points of interest and historical landmarks that dot the country, and some are simply shots of the breathtaking scenery you encounter traveling across the US. This is one such image. Photo by Joel Bradshaw.
