Jeff and Nancy Walters, owners of Bath, New York-based J&N Trucking, showed this 2006 Peterbilt 379 and 2019 Great Dane van at the Kenly 95 East Coast Jamboree in Kenly, North Carolina, last month. 

After an accident a few months prior to the Kenly show, Jeff redid the truck with custom fenders, new exhaust and more. All of the paint and striping was done by Jeff, who enjoys painting as a hobby.

The truck was originally blue, but using a connection at Napa, Jeff mixed up a new custom blue with pearl for the rig, as well as the pearl green he used for the striping. The top of the cab also features the Peterbilt logo, which he painted himself. The side rails of the trailer also feature the blue and green scheme of the tractor, which he painted a week before the show.

"I like having something that no one else has," Jeff says. "That's why I paint them like that."

The rig is used to haul dry van freight mostly up and down the East Coast to Florida and back.
