Before we take a run through all the performances, including those of fellow talent search finalists Freddy French and Paul Cullers, our own “Long Haul Paul” Marhoefer returns to the podcast mic, as it were, via a 2019 interview with Keeler Custom Truck Restoration owner-operator Jason Keeler of Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania (pictured at top), detailing some of Keeler’s history and one spectacular 1950 Kenworth W923.

At podcast’s end, too: A special couple minutes’ worth of KTA600 Cummins-powered 1950 Kenworth audio action. Enjoy it:
