The American Way

I know last two posts were hard on you my friends and some might be wondering WTF all those East-European truckers and Swedish trucks are doing here on BRS. Easy. Thats was just a intro to talk about how its being done right way – you don’t buy new truck to get into haulling freight anymore.  You need 1984 Pete 359 and if it happen to be short hood – you slam the cab  to make it look right. Tiny, short sleeper will expose enough of frame to put your name – then flip the doors, figure unique color scheme and you are on your way. Everyone will look at you, so you gotta know when to wave – thats how you build your business American Way. It might take more than few days but you’ll be OK  – just keep on trucking.

UPDATE: I have had pleasure talking to Steve Mitchell, here is what he said about this awesome build:  “I’m 26…..built the whole truck by myself with help from my dad and 15 year old neighbor kid….Cabs 84 & part of the frame…..cabs chopped 4 inches with suicide doors and one piece windows….converted to 73 pete dash… hoods from 73… sleepers from 79… custom unibilted the cab and sleeper and put them on air ride. Converted to single turbo c15 out of a 2000 Pete and converted to single drive with pusher axle mounted on a Canadian spread….truck has an aluminum frame also”

    It’s just a tag axle.
