Welcome to the August, 2019 edition of LargeCarMag Online!
Lots of people have asked where we came up with the name LargeCarMag and the truck you see here is a big part of where it came from. As a kid, I was in love with everything about American Trucker magazine, but one thing in particular I was drawn to, the Vernon Truck wash ads. Bill Donahoe owned Vernon Truck Wash and the Tootsie Roll and placed ads with customers trucks in them called “the largecar seal of approval.”
On October 5th -7th 2018 there was a benefit truck show at the Clinton County Fair Grounds in Pennsylvania. This annual Truckers 4 Hope Jamboree in which benefits Cystic Fibrosis Research under the team name Hope 4 Hayze, had the community excited.
On September 16th 2018 Leroy Keens held his annual East Coast Marmon Truck Meet at Weaver Markets in Denver Pennsylvania. If you’ve always wanted to check out a Marmon truck up close this is the show for you!
On September 15th the Cable Truck show was held at CTI Coordinators headquarters in Saltsburg Pennsylvania. As you can see there were lots of big rides in attendance including some very unique rides!
Brett Rose owns this beautiful 2009 Peterbilt 389. An ISX Cummins puts 700 hp to the ground and a 13 speed transmission and 3:55 rears helps get all that power to the ground and it all rides on a 320” wheelbase.
The Fleenor Bros. name is undoubtedly no stranger to big rides, but they stepped outside the box with their new ride that you see here.
This issue I decided to do a compilation of some K100’s out working.
What should we do this weekend? Let’s head over to Consolidated Peterbilt in Chicopee and check out some new trucks. Great idea! It’s hard to believe 40 years have passed since Consolidated West held its grand opening in Chicopee on February 18th and 19th 1979.
