October, 2021 cover.
Welcome to the October, 2021 edition of LargeCarMag Online!
Pictured here, is a 2019 Peterbilt 389 extended hood, with a 72” (can we still just call it a 63”?) flattop sleeper. This truck, like others Bill has had, is a glider kit, and was mostly assembled in his own shop.
June 5th, 2021 was the highly anticipated date. The P.O.L team was ready, fully staffed and everyone in position as the first truck pulled into the RES Auction Center in Wooster, Ohio. Met at the gates, semi-trucks were directed to the left where they were parked according to their class… combo, bobtail, and straight truck. Hot rod cars, trucks and motorcycles pulled to the right for their cruise-in car show and all spectator traffic were sent straight to the parking lot directly behind the auction house centering the massive complex.
Each year in Indianapolis there is one of the greatest gatherings of every custom facet of the automotive world. Full custom street rods, import tuners, bikes, diesel 4×4’s, lowriders, classics, hot rod muscle, and semi-trucks and it’s called… Slamology.
Sizzlin’ Hot Trucks and Sizzlin’ Hot Weather EQUALS a SPECTUACULAR 2021 Wheel Jam Truck Show!!! Once again, the 18 Wheel Truck Promotions, LLC Crew produced the Annual Wheel Jam Truck Show in Huron, South Dakota at the South Dakota State Fairgrounds that was another SIZZLIN’ success!
Adam Johnson of Spring Valley Wisconsin is the owner of the 1984 Kenworth W900B (yes I said W900B) you see here, there’s a lot to go over with this very cool and unique ride but I want to start with some background on Adam and K&D Transport before we get to the build of his ride.
Brock Gadberry steers and gears this 2014 Kenworth W900L for Wylee Anderson at W.L Anderson Livestock and Grain out of Mead Nebraska.
I caught this pair back in the early 80’s. Its hard to tell but the first truck looks like an Autocar with an All American sleeper and obviously the cabover is a Freightliner.
