One way we’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of Overdrive’s Pride & Polish this year is highlighting 25 of our best custom rigs videos.

In the 16th week of the countdown — which will span 25 weeks — here’s Jeff Shawhan’s 1990 Kenworth K100E cabover, which he calls Obscene Gesture.

Shawhan bought the truck in a junkyard in 2005. Since then he’s put in a Cummins N14, a neighbor did the paint job and Truk Guts of Joplin, Mo., installed a diamond-themed interior. Shawhan used to use the truck for his hauling business, which he still has, but in recent years has used it for hauling on his grain farm.

He picked the Obscene Gesture name because of the large pipes, visor and bumper, all of which were  dramatic for the time, especially on a cabover.

Here’s a video of Shawhan and his truck:
