Elvis Williamson and his son, Elvis Jr., of Poplarville, Miss., showed this 1995 Peterbilt 379 at the 2009 Great American Trucking Show Pride & Polish for a friend. They bought it directly afterward, tore it down to the frame rails and rebuilt it. “We fix them up and put our own touch on them with a blend of old school styling with new school technology,” Williamson says. The truck won third in the Working Bobtail, 2000 & Older category, in the 2010 GATS Pride & Polish.
