Published on Apr 26, 2015

On 4/24/15 I stopped into a place I like to call "Trucker Heaven". I found the original Duel truck and a Smokey and the Bandit truck plus about 50 more classic beauties! I get on film a lot of the trucks but here is a good taste of what I saw.

Published on Jun 6, 2012
Take a tour with Brad's Classic Trucks owner Brad Wike of the 1975 Mack FS700 and 1966 custom trailer that was legend Evel Knievel's haul rig -- here shown in the very early stages of restoration after a long period of disuse in a Florida yard, the rig was brought back from the dead with the help of Wike, American Trucker host Robb Mariani and others. Overdrive Senior Editor Todd Dills visited with Wike in February 2012.

American Trucker: Evel Mission

Published on Sep 9, 2011
Robb Mariani tries to hunt down the rig that helped pull daredevil Evel Knievel around the country during his touring days to and deliver it to a truck show in North Carolina. --- One of the most under-appreciated jobs throughout the world is truck driving. Dangerous roads, immense traffic, mindless drivers and difficult deadlines make over-the-road trucking one of the more demanding professions anywhere. It's also one of the more fascinating. Hosted by trucking-enthusiast Robb Mariani, American Trucker takes a look at some of the most iconic machines, routes and locations that define this largely under-appreciated occupation. Thursday nights at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT only on SPEED.

Snowman's Truck and Trailer

57,993 views

Published on Oct 6, 2012
A quick walk around of The Smokey and the Bandit Truck and Trailer. This was recorded at the Charlotte Diesel Super Show 2012. The film also made use of three Kenworth W900A short-frame semi trucks which Jerry Reed's character "Snowman" can be seen driving, each equipped with 38" sleepers.

Two units were 1974 models, as evidenced by standard silver Kenworth emblems on the truck grille, and one unit was a 1973 model, as evidenced by the gold-painted Kenworth emblem on the truck's grille signifying Kenworth's 50 years in business. The paint code for each truck was coffee brown with gold trim, and the 40 ft mural trailer used was manufactured by Hobbs Trailers in Texas with a Thermo King Refrigeration unit.
