Beauty at any scale

Bruce W. Smith, editor of Overdrive sister magazine Custom Rigs, photographed these hot haulers at the Shell SuperRigs event June 2-4 at the Kenly 95 Petro in Kenly, N.C. The flatbed is hauling gallon jugs of Shell Rotella; the big Lonestar is a company display trailer. The mid-size Lonestar lookalike – well, you can check it out at the model truck go-kart races!

TRUCK GALLERY

Herding sheep with a Cat

Drew Jorgensen and his father haul sheep around Utah, California and Colorado in their 2008 Kenworth W900L. The family has about 3,000 sheep on its Utah ranch. The truck is equipped with a 550-hp Caterpillar and 18-speed transmission and pulls a 1997 48-foot Wilson sheep trailer.




Old iron

Jim Lammon, of Grass Lake, Mich., hauls flatbed freight regionally with this 1985 Peterbilt 359. It’s powered by a 400-hp Caterpillar and 15-speed transmission. “Old iron is getting harder to come by these days, so when I see an old truck like mine, you can bet I will compliment you on it,” Lammon says.
