The truck that Darren drives is a 2001 Peterbilt 379 Standard Hood. He has made many changes to it since buying it. The most noticeable change, is the “ little big hood conversion”, which takes the slope out of the standard hood. Darren’s other truck is a 2000 Peterbilt 379 Extended Hood. This truck was purchased in early 2018, mainly to have as a spare truck.

Ok, so maybe its not a LargeCar but it is a very well done hand built mini big rig. I think I caught this cool little truck in Doswell Virginia back in the early 80s.
I know its not a great picture but I thought I would share because it’s a little window Peterbilt.
We’re heading to the heat of Phoenix to introduce you to a cool operation in refrigerated transportation. In 1952 Ed Schaeffer began his trucking career with one tractor and a reefer trailer. From this simple beginning Ed and his wife Helen built a cross country refrigerated express company known as H&E Schaeffer Coast to Coast Refrigerated Express based in Phoenix, Arizona.
