Ken and Barb Fisher

When reading the words “Fully Involved” high atop the back of Kenneth and Barb Fisher’s 1997 Peterbilt, one’s mind might start to wonder. Upon asking Kenneth about the name, it’s very clear that it’s more than fitting.

Timeless Chrome – LivLab Sleepers

We’re heading to Lake Park, Florida to introduce you to the newest innovation in sleeper comfort and cost savings. The year is 1979 and Gene Miller is an owner operator leased to Mayflower Van Lines. Like most owner operators Gene was always looking for ways to save money and increase his comfort while trucking. Gene checked out the latest sleepers available on the market but couldn’t find what he was looking for. When you have a background like Genes and the industry doesn’t offer what you’re looking for you build it yourself.

Paul Zook

Three years ago, Paul Zook was faced with a dilemma. With the ELD mandate fast approaching at that time, he knew he wanted to make a change, but was unsure which way to go. First, he considered a new glider truck, but wasn’t satisfied with the quality of the new trucks, even though it would be ELD exempt. Next, he even thought about getting out of trucking completely, but let’s be honest…we all think about it, but can’t do it. In the end, he decided on building a pre-ELD ride, almost from the ground up.

2018 Top gun LargeCar Shootout

Jimmy Rosenberger of Mini Chrome Shop and I rolled into the Rantoul National Aviation Center on Thursday July 26th, knowing for the first time in all the years we have attended this great event, that we wouldn’t be seeing its founder Tom Reitz. Jimmy had talked to his wife DaVeda and learned he was in the hospital fighting complications as the result of his battle with cancer. Sadly we would never see Tom again as it was announced on Saturday morning July 28th that Tom had lost his battle. To say it was a quiet somber morning, would be an understatement.
