Gary Reveal of Morrow, Ohio, sees a lot of himself in his 2001 Peterbilt 357 – literally. The custom-built rig features aluminum polished so well that an admirer can see his own face. Reveal’s rig is powered by a 425-hp Cummins ISM and boasts an Eaton Fuller 10-speed transmission. A 19-foot East Aluminum dump body completes the sparkling rig.


During the 15 years Randy and Judy Kennedy of Seneca, Mo., have driven team, the couple has taken to the road in three different trucks. But this 2000 Kenworth, powered by a 475-hp Caterpillar, is the first new truck the driving pair has owned. They plan to use their experience in fixing used trucks to keep their Kenworth running, so this latest rig will be their last.


RIG: 1991 Kenworth K-100E
ENGINE: 350-hp Cummins
OWNER: Robert Hayes
FREIGHT: Asphalt tank
