Greg Wertz

About a year or so ago, I was at a show when I get a text from Justin Lang with a picture of a very clean Peterbilt 359 hooked to a bull rack. I immediately texted him back asking whose truck it is. Justin texted back saying someone named Greg owned it. A few months later, at the Tri States Antique Truck Show in Winchester, VA, I got to see the truck for myself up close and all I can say is wow! What a nice 359!
