Bill Warner Jr. Grain of Circleville West Virginia has been business for the last 25 years. We first met Bill the very weekend we launched LargeCarMag.com on the internet. It was the Mid America truck show in Louisville Kentucky in 2001 and Bill was there with a 359 called “Stage Coach Express”, that particular truck was at the very first truck show I ever attended (the same show and truck are in the flashback show coverage in this issue).
Michael Meek of Meek Trucking, Fort Shaw Montana, sent us these pictures of his three trucks. Michael uses the 1987 Peterbilt 359 to pull a flatbed between Washington and Iowa.
I caught this Large 379 off exit 104 of I-95. The owner, “shoes”, was super cool and a big fan of LCM.
When we arrived at the Shell Super Rigs 2011 show in Kenly, North Carolina, one of the first trucks we saw was the 1989 Ford LTL 9000 you see here. Needless to say, we were blown away! Upon closer inspection, we discovered the truck belongs to Bill Warner Jr. of Circleville, West Virginia, someone we know very well.
Rainy weather didn’t keep the large rides from showing up at the 2011 Carlisle All Truck Nationals, held August 5-7th.
CHEROKEE BOB TRUCK SHOW
Great turn out and it had a good time visiting with everyone and the proceeds went to the Shriners.
