Brian Sames, an owner-operator from Quakertown, Pa., added pinstripes, fiberglass fenders, lights under the cab and sleeper, and a Texas square bumper to his 2009 Peterbilt 389. He also made the interior a little more like home, adding a refrigerator, microwave and flat-panel TV. It’s equipped with a 550-hp Cummins and an 18-speed transmission. Sames uses it to pull his bin trailer or flatbed.
