Christopher Olmsted’s Transformers-themed 2019 Freightliner Cascadia

Olmsted 2019 04 18 10 37

Christopher Olmsted owns this 2019 Freightliner Cascadia, “Bumblebee.” The truck is powered by a Detroit DD15 with a D12 automatic. Upgrades to the rig mostly include vinyl graphics, which were done by Stripes & Stuff in Springfield, Missouri. The wheels were powder-coated black, and Olmsted added a 24-inch LED light bar on the deer guard, along with two flood lights on the back of the sleeper. He also installed a train horn. Olmsted says he plans to add more to the Transformers-themed rig and stays in contact with the owner of the Optimus Prime Western Star.
