If you know Lavern Cross, then you know he’s a big time A model guy. He bought his first W900A Kenworth in 1988, and this is his 3rd A model.
September 24-26 was a great weekend for a truck show! There was no humidity and no chance of rain and for September the temperature was actually cool, not as cool as the trucks that had assembled for this show. Wow, what a turnout for this show.
Scott Diller of Lanita Specialized named the 2018 Kenworth W900L and 2018 Mac trailer you see here “Last Hurrah”. The reason for that name is because this will be the last big build Scott plans on doing.
As time goes by and modernization takes place all good things must come to an end. New upgrades in designs, styling, comfort and technology take the place of the luxuries we’ve already become accustomed to. After a 21 year run beginning in 1959 the Peterbilt 352 was ready to be phased out with the 1980 model year. Replacing the 352, 282 and 352H will be the newly designed and innovative 1981 Peterbilt 362.
