We are counting down the videos from the No. 30 to the No. 1 most-viewed Pride & Polish video leading up to the 2020 Pride & Polish competition at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, which will be held Aug. 27-29.

Up this week at No. 24 is Virginia-based fleet owner Mike Manuel’s “Custombilt 359,” a 1984 Peterbilt and 2003 Benson flatbed. Manuel built the truck to match the color scheme of his son’s 2008 105th-anniversary Harley. The truck placed third in the Limited Mileage Combo National Championship at the 2013 Pride & Polish event at the Great American Trucking Show.
