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. 15 is Ron Brubaker’s “One of a Kind” 1993 Peterbilt 379, which won Best of Show in the Working Bobtail class at the Fitzgerald Pride & Polish in Crossville, Tennessee, in 2014.

The short-hood Pete was powered by mechanical Cat 3406B with a 15-speed two-stick transmission. The rig got its “One of a Kind” moniker from the flying swine hood ornament (fitting given the creatures Brubaker typically hauled at the time) to newly redone tile flooring and other interior elements in 2014.
