Hazmat hauler Jesus Cala spent two years rebuilding his 1996 Kenworth W900, which is powered by a 500-hp Detroit Diesel and a 10-speed transmission. “He just really did a whole number on it and customized it completely on the outside,” says the Miami, Fla., native’s wife, Lisa. He stretched the frame to 280 inches, added bunches of lights and slapped on a new paint scheme. “He loves to drive, and he loves his rig,” Lisa notes.
