Great-Looking Rigs

| December 11, 2008

The driver training program at Spoon River College in Canton, Ill., owns this 1972 International cabover, but Director Bob Walter keeps it and its 250-hp Cummins engine clean and running smoothly. The truck is used for promotional events and is sometimes rolled out for CDL training when other Spoon River trucks are in service.

When he started driving with his father in Mexico at age 14, Alejandro Guerrero Jr. never dreamed he one day would own this 1989 Freightliner FLD120 with a 425-hp Caterpillar. Guerrero, who now lives in Romeoville, Ill., hauls produce on a weekly run to Texas.
