“Thank goodness the places we haul in and out of know us and keep an eye out for the trailer,” said Bill Culver at the time. His father, Johnny Culver, said he founded the family concrete operation with nothing but a shovel and a religious faith reflected in the business name: Master Made.

The Pete won a trophy in the Specialty category of the 2004 Pride & Polish, held at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas.
