On a very rainy and pleasantly cool Thursday evening, here's the next installment from the 2018 show.
First up, a sharp Kenworth K100 that was for sale at the time.
I wonder if it sold, and who bought it and where it ended up?
A sharp Ford LTL9000.
Love me a LTL9000! Don't see nearly enough of them at shows.
A very well kept Mack B-61.
I've always wondered what type of fog lights those were, I've seen them on lots of vintage rigs.
Another B-61, this one looking a bit tired. But still cool.
And another Mack, this one a really nifty H-67 wrecker.
And I'm sure this one is familiar to many; the really cool "Rubber Duck" Mack RS700L from the movie "Convoy".
A Kenworth K100 with the awesome "Aerodyne" sleeper. Of course, like many K100s, this one is based on the "B.J. and the Bear" TV show.
I've often wanted to purchase the show on DVD/Blu-ray, but my research suggests that either a flood or fire (been a while since I looked, can't recall which) hit the building where the tapes were being held and ruined them all before copies were made. A real tragedy.😥
On a lighter note, another celebrity rig from a much more well documented show, "Movin' On".
A 1974 Kenworth W900A.
"Movin' On" was mostly filmed out West, but some of the series (not sure which or how many episodes) were filmed here in North Carolina! I think.
And yet another celebrity rig, this one a 1964 Peterbilt 351 that was an unused spare rig for the movie "Duel". I've read that the director, Steven Spielberg, chose the 351 "needlenose" style rig because it had a more intimidating appearance than the more common at the time cabovers. I'd agree with that.
An interesting Ford cabover built by/for the host of American Trucker, Rob Mariani. I'm not sure if he still owns/owned it.
A very clean and well kept White Freightliner.
And wrapping up Chapter 2, a rare and really cool GMC 9000.
