This 1988 Peterbilt 379 is owned by Jesse James, proprietor of North Carolina-based Jesse James Trucking. The truck is powered by a 425-hp Cat with a 15-speed overdrive and sits on a 325-inch wheelbase. James said he painted the truck and built the motor himself. He runs "multiple trailer operations throughout the Southeast."
