Owner-operator Mike Hussey bought the classic W900L featured in this video — and powered by a 525-hp N14 Cummins overhauled in the last years he’s had it — from the owner of the fleet he’s leased to today, Coomes, Inc., out of Phillipsburg, Kan.

Hussey and his wife, Corren, were among the many I met this past year at the Guilty by Association Truck Show. Take a run through a variety of views through the rig, which he says sat for 10 years before he purchased it.Hussey and his wife, Corren, were among the many I met this past year at the Guilty by Association Truck Show. Take a run through a variety of views through the rig, which he says sat for 10 years before he purchased it. Since then, he’s put well upward of $60K in it, he estimates, from that engine overhaul to rears and the transmission as well as exterior modifications like the Jones Performance cowl-induction hood and graphics.Since then, he’s put well upward of $60K in it, he estimates, from that engine overhaul to rears and the transmission as well as exterior modifications like the Jones Performance cowl-induction hood and graphics. Graphics on the body were designed with colors that also happen to have been Mike and Corren’s wedding-decor-theme hues. Among other adds, the unit’s front bumper is new, following being backed into at a truck stop in the early days of Hussey’s ownership of the rig, as he notes in the video.Graphics on the body were designed with colors that also happen to have been Mike and Corren’s wedding-decor-theme hues.
