This is a custom 2007 379 Peterbilt that I completely repainted from the frame to the exterior of the truck. This was a dream of mine for the last 15 yrs. I’ve seen a variety of colors and pin strips, but I wanted something that was simple and sleek. My favorite colors are red, black and gray, so I came up with the design and put to work. I have a Cat C15 Acert with a 18 speed Eaton Transmission. When I bought it back in 2018, it was a plain white with a black frame. Wheelbase was at 270, shorter than I want. I took it to a fabrication shop close by where I live. They looked at it and I told them what I was looking at doing and wanted it stretched to 300”. This truck runs California to Florida each week.. and is admired by many. I named the truck “Flirting With Disaster”
