December, 2019 cover.
Welcome to the December, 2019 edition of LargeCarMag Online!
With a long family history around trucking, this beautifully restored 359, is a childhood dream come true, for fourth-generation trucker, John Carter.
If you were to ask any retail business owner the formula for their success, chances are the most frequent response would be to keep their customers happy by offering a fair deal for their money. Since their humble beginnings in 1986 Berubes Truck Accessories in Bow NH has adhered to that train of thought, but for the past 16 years the staff there has gone above and beyond that by throwing a top shelf truck show and BBQ for their customers as a “thank you” for the support.
On June 7-8th J&T Logistics hosted their Annual Cornpatch Dual Wheel Classic at their headquarters in Hubbard, Iowa.
The 2019 Top Gun LargeCar Shootout was held July 26-28th as always at the Rantoul National Aviation Center in Rantoul, Illinois.
Wheel Jam Truck Show #16 is in the books! It was a great show with beautiful South Dakota weather! Thanks to all the drivers/owners/sponsors/vendors – you all did a wonderful job of promoting the trucking industry. YOU SHOULD ALL BE VERY PROUD!!!
We were met, on July 14th, at Spencer’s Chrome Parts & Service with beautiful weather and even more beautiful trucks!
On July 13th , the Hunter Truck Keystone Diesel Nationals was held at the Lebanon Valley Fairgrounds in Lebanon, Pennsylvania. The weather was perfect which made for a great event filled with beautiful trucks!
On July 27th, the Keystone Truckin Nationals (sponsored by Denver Truck Painting) was held at Maple Grove Raceway in Reading, Pennsylvania. Of course being held at a drag strip, there was plenty of big rigs making great time down the track and being that it’s a truck show, there were lots of great looking rides to check out.
John Skriba of Perrysburg, ohio owns this very large 1990 379 Extended hood Peterbilt. The Truck is Powered by a 425 Cat backed by a factory installed 6X4 two stick transmission.
Some say the beauty is in the details. If that’s true, beauty is everywhere here, for New Jersey based Manny Lopez. There are details from top to bottom, front to back, inside, out, and underneath, on this super clean combo!
I’m not sure where I caught this A model but there sure is a lot going on here.
This month’s Diesel Doodle comes to us from age 12 Allie Smith.
