What cool trucks (rigs or pick ups) have you seen lately?

Craig - For some odd reason this truck really intrigues me B)

Looks like a great kitbash project !

Jimmy Flinstone makes a resin 4 door Pete Unilite cab that you can occasionally find on ebay. I had a silly Peterbilt limo project going on with an extra long hood and a 56 Ford bed with a set of double hump rear fenders.

Heres a Pete Limo. With a C16 and well north of a 1000 horse.

This truck was built the Bothelo brothers out of Los Banos, Ca. They also built the slammed roadster 379 Pete.

I wish I could have gotten a better shot of those Petes, but I couldn't get back to the Hotel they were at without being late for my job.....

This truck is seen frequently in the thumb of Michigan. Makes me jealous every time I see it.post-15045-0-08227300-1421333741_thumb.j

Cool trucks guys.

Here are a few more from my trips to the west coast of the United States.

This is Scrappers Racing's race hauler for Mike Salinas taken at the 2009 California Hot Rod Reunion at Famoso Raceway, Bakersfield Ca.

Saw this guy off the highway on my way to a job.....No where near as spectacular as Hakan's find, but I keep finding orange trucks for some reason....

Aw, Man....I saw some just today at the truck stop down the street.....They also stop and hand out in this particular parking lot from time to time, too....I'll keep my eyes peeled....I'm sure I'll find one setting all by itself, soon....There's a Lamborghini dealership down the road a bit, too.....I'll hook him up as soon as I can....

Believe it or not that truck would handle like a dream in town. Just can't forget to lift your axles and drag some expensive rubber.

Judging by the angled portion behind the king pin, I'd say a car hauler.....

Looks like that used to be a Reliable unit.

Thought this was interesting. Its a custom hood with Pete headlights. It looks goofy with headlights mounted so high, might even be illegal.

This 379 belongs to one of my neighbors, he hauls a lot of hay and cattle with it. You can hear that Cat rumbling up the road 10 miles away.

I saw this danger dodge at an elevator a few weeks ago. Looked to be rough but was still neat. Isn't one you're going to see very often
