GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN
Herbert Joseph Heitzeig bought this 1998 Peterbilt 379 EX shortly before he died that same year. He and his wife drove together for 62 years. Now two of Heitzeig’s grandchildren, Adam and Jarrod, own and drive their grandfather’s rig for the company he started, H.J.H. Trucking, based in Fieldon, Ill.
Between produce runs from Florida to California, Dan and Kath Allen found time to put “9-11” and “Let Freedom Ring” on the side of their 2003 Kenworth W900 Studio. A 550-hp Caterpillar powers this patriotic tribute.
