Seeing red: Mike Lemley’s Cathouse

| September 02, 2014

A bright red sports car, goes the stereotype, is what men in mid-life crisis hanker for. Mike Lemley of Mustang, Okla., dwarfs that dream with his stunning Cathouse.

This 2000 Peterbilt 379 was one of the boldest trucks at the recent Pride & Polish show in Dallas. The all-red (even the grille) Pete won Best of Show in Working Bobtail at the Great American Trucking Show.

The truck also won First Place in the Custom Paint and Working Bobtail (2000 and older) category. Beatty Body Works of Oklahoma City, Okla., did the viper red paint job.   

The LED headlights can be set to rotate through colors. “They’re on a 27-color wheel, multi-change,” says Mike Lemley.
