This 2005 Kenworth T600 with
a 400-hp Cummins under the hood
is owned by Richard Goon of Ohio.

TODAY’S TIP: Prepare a budget, a business plan and a cash-flow statement before applying for a loan. A budget will assure the lender that you can meet the financial obligations of owning a truck. A cash-flow statement shows that your projected revenue will meet current obligations.
