One way we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of Overdrive‘s Pride & Polish is by looking back at the 30 most-popular Pride & Polish show truck videos from our YouTube page.

We are running through the videos from the No. 30 to the No. 1 most-viewed Pride & Polish video. Plans for a 2020 event are currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Up this week at No. 18 is “Ace in the Hole,” a 2008 Kenworth W900 owned by Kyle Cousins and Carthage, Missouri-based Fleenor Bros. The rig’s name stems from the truck being a backup of sorts for the fleet when no drivers were available for a load, Cousins would jump in this truck to take it.

Cousins pulled the truck off the road with intentions to repaint it, but that turned into a more involved rebuild. The stripes on the truck feature a marbleized red scheme. He goes into more of the rebuild in the video above.
