Many men who earn their lonely living on the road will make their truck a special one, hot rodding it or customizing it and Dick and I find them beautiful!
This is a local truck that only makes a couple trips a week. They also show it in custom truck shows that you can find a summer long. They meet at fairgrounds and racetracks and polish their rigs til the stainless and chrome shines! They have truck races each year in Sparta, Ontario and also run after dark. You should see how the lights all shine! It's like any carnival you ever saw!
This truck always holds this place of honor in the yard right where everyone can see it driving by. This was taken on Sunday and it is normally parked just so!
It's a Peterbuilt.
This is nicknamed a Flat Top. Notice all the lights across the top of the cab?
We believe a young fellow drives her, hauling steel stateside.
The big box on the back is where you'll find a bunk.
The huge polished stainless canister on the side is one of the air filters.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and you can find awesome sights everywhere! All you have to do is look!
