Welcome to the November issue of LargeCarMag Online! This issue features MASSIVE show coverage from our very own LargeCarMag Southern Classic Truckshow, which was held at Lee-Hi Truck Plaza last month in Lexington, VA.
Anybody that has been going to shows or runs the roads in the northeast over the years knows (or knew of) Joe Gallopo’s black 1992 W900L with its flames and massive floats up front, very cool ride. Then in 2011 the bad ass 900L you see here shows up on the scene and had people scratching their heads wondering where this large ride came from and whose it is!
Another great catch by Rich Stark. Thanks Rich, keep the pics of the big rides coming!
Shane Overlander of Wabash Indiana owns this 2006 Peterbilt 379. Shane and his brother did all the work on Shane’s 379 and as you can see, they did a great job!
With the passing of the 2013 LargeCarMag Southern Classic Truck Show which was held on October 19th at LeeHI Travel Plaza, another year of shows is in the books. As winter is approaching, every show goer is already thinking about next year’s shows- where they’ll go, who they’ll see, what they’ll do to their trucks, the list goes on and on. At the top of every list though, is camaraderie. The friendships and pride throughout the trucking industry is always evident, yet beams like a beacon at these shows- shows not only for the drivers, but also their family, friends, and other enthusiasts.

I caught this large 379 from Canada at Servicetown off exit 133 of I-95 in Virginia back in the mid 90’s.
Zach Montgomery sent us this very cool doodle. Zach is ten years old and loves trucks and spends most of his time in the shop with his dad working on trucks. Great work Zach!
