The 2014 Overdrive’s Pride & Polish National Championship finale officially begins Thursday, and in preparation for that and the annual Great American Trucking Show Pride & Polish competition, dozens of the top show and working show rigs in the country have made their way to the Dallas Convention Center, where their owners are cleaning and prepping the rigs for the week’s contest.

Here’s a look at some of the trucks that have made their way to the show floor so far:
