Mike Rust is the second owner of this 1985 Western Star with only 160,000 original miles. The rig is powered by a variable timing mechanical 400-hp Cummins Big Cam 3. The interior is still original and, other than the paint color, the truck matches the first truck Rust owned. Rust says the original owner worked in the film industry and parked the truck in 2006. He bought it two years ago and has put about 12,000 miles on it pulling step deck freight out of Exeter, New Hampshire.
