#6 – Norman and Rhonda Pike – Ole Rag – 1998 Peterbilt 379

“When we’d come home, and the truck was dirty, I’d say that I needed to go wash that old raggedy truck,” says Norman Pike, who with his wife is leased to Landstar Ranger. “The name just stuck, and now everyone says, ‘I wouldn’t mind driving that old raggedy truck.'” But the Pikes think they’ll keep their truck and doubt that they will ever have another. “I can’t imagine starting over,” Rhonda Pike says. “We put things on piece by piece, and we’re forever doing something different,” she says. “It’s a never-ending story.”
