Way back in September 2006 in our premiere print issue we featured a truck owned by Scott Diller of Lanita transport known as Tequila Sunrise. In the eleven years since that feature Lanita Transport has become Lanita Specialized and has grown it to what has to be one of the most amazing fleet of working trucks in the country!

On May 13th , 2017, Antrim Diesel held their annual Dyno Day and as usual it was an amazing event full of big horsepower.
Many trucks caught my eye that day but one of the real standouts was John Neal’s 1982 Kenworth A model. Well, the title says 1982 but the specs tell another story. Features like a 6NZ C-15 Cat, an 18 speed, flex air suspension, air ride front suspension and electric wipers make it seem like a much newer machine.
As we begin a new year let’s take one more look back at 2017 and a huge anniversary celebration. The Freightliner Corporation celebrated the milestone of 75 years of being a pioneer in the truck building industry.
