From the big picture to the fine detail of some of the most "wow-worthy" of customized semi trucks. From an author who has spent more than a quarter-century photographing and writing about tractor-trailers comes the best book yet about the custom semis that do so much of the nation's heavy hauling in consummate style. In chapters that range from solo drivers, families in trucking, and whole customized fleets to the finest nitty-gritty and cutting-edge elements of semi truck customization, this book offers a close-up look at spectacular examples of custom semis. Includes before-and-after photos of re-customized trucks; motifs in graphics and design - on themes as various as dragons, pirates, trains, and Harley-Davidson; and here are the details of wood, metal, lights, etching, and interiors that make a rig "wow-worthy." Her subjects, Bette S. Garber says, are the "creme de la creme" of working show trucks - spectacular owner-operator tractor-trailers that have been beautifully painted, colorfully striped, loaded with extra lights, and dazzled with metal trim. But "don't be fooled by their appearance," Garber cautions. "These trucks work hard every day pulling flatbeds, dry vans, refrigerated trailers, drop-decks, tankers of all kinds, even specialty trailers like bark haulers, auto carriers, and dump trucks, day after day, throughout all corners of America."
