Keeping it old school: ’02 Peterbilt 379

| July 03, 2014

RickMeijerRick Meijer, an Orono, Ontario, native, owns this 2002 Peterbilt 379, which is powered by a 550-hp Cat and 18-speed transmission. The owner-operator is leased to Landstar and hauls step-deck machinery. Meijer wanted to keep the truck reminiscent of the old-school tractors, so he dropped both the front and the back six inches and added 6-inch pipes. The headlights were taken from a 359, and Meijer made sure to take it easy on the chrome, in keeping with the theme. The interior has been painted orange and black.

    Great job!! Much better than the butchered up, over chromed trucks so many have. Some don’t even look like a truck.
