Having grown up on his grandfather’s Illinois hog farm, Jeff Hamilton thought he’d had enough of bovine beauty. Then he went hog-wild with this 2001 Kenworth W900L that he acquired in 2002 and named “Zigs Pig.” The hood ornament and a secondary front tag show a pig wearing sunglasses.

The truck appeared as the June feature in the 2006 Overdrive’s Pride & Polish calendar. It was photographed by Paul Hartley of ADD Media at Farmers Grill in Dallas.
