Glenn Russell doesn’t inhabit the Pride & Polish section here at the Great West Truck Show in Las Vegas. Still, he’s in a custom vehicle world of its own — a homemade frame supporting and 18 wheels minus 15. He’s crafted it around a Deutz air-cooled engine.

“It’s got a 2003 Chevy S10 rear end with disc brakes,” he says. “It tops out at 75 mph, cruises at 65.”

Russell built the three-wheeler for diesellife.com, which sells apparel for diesel and trucking aficionados, Russell says.

Checkout Russell’s description of the vehicle, and other photos, in this video.

    Spoke to him at the show. Really nice guy. Needs a 4-speed brownie to get some real speed out of this thing.
