Darren Friedrichsen

When I first looked at the photos of Darren Friedrichson’s 2018 Peterbilt 389, my first thought was what a cool older truck! It just had that simple, uncomplicated, not overdone old school look. The beautiful blue cab, sleeper and hood and black fenders and tanks are perfect with just a little pinstriping. No need for over the top graphics and tons of bolt ons here.

2017 Las Vegas Semi Truck Show

On April 22nd the Las Vegas Semi Truck Show was held at the legendary Bullring  at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.  Although the Southern Nevada chapter of the ATHS has held shows in the past, this is the first year they have invited new and working trucks to join and it was for cash and trophies.

JR Schleuger

Did I mention we love A Model’s? Restored, unrestored, working, non-working. You name it, we love ‘em.  JR Schleuger’s ’80 A Model is no  exception. How could you NOT love a restored, modified and  KTA 450  powered K-Dub? JR seems to have hit that perfect mix  of old school and custom with just the right amount of add-ons and a traditional style paint scheme.
