That is an impressive looking truck! Was that kind of Pete's answer to KW's Bullnose or something...?

I can't be certain, but I think these were around BEFORE the Kenworth Bullnose.

Man, this is bringing back memories....I saw this truck at the 25th Annual Trucker's Jamboree at the Walcott Iowa 80. Classy ride.

Great Pictures!  I know this truck, and owner  first hand. I have helped him do work on the truck and trailer. I was not able to make the show with him, but from these pictures, I see it was looking great and standing tall!!!
