Getting passed by a legend.

Got passed by this on I-75 a few weeks ago, and yes, this was the truck on American Trucker.








And NO comments on the broken bug screen, it's been replaced.

I know I'm going to sound like a complete idiot here but could someone fill me in on exactly what i'm looking at?? I have NEVER missed an episode of American Trucker but I don't remember this truck being on there. When I first saw it at a glance I thought it was the Evil-Knievel truck but upon further investigation it's not.

That's the truck from the TV show BJ and the Bear. Early 80's.

Is that the original? The only ep of American Trucker I saw was the Evil Kenivel truck show

It is the truck from A/T, I talked to the guy on the radio. Plus it had all the right lettering on it.

THe one from the A/T Episode was one of the ones originally made from the Show. The Trailer isn't but ... its the same make/model.

I enjoyed the American trucker Show -

By The way You can BUY the original Series of BJ & The Bear on DVD as well as the Movin' On series. Truckerflicks.com

I love the fact that this truck doesn't sit rotting away in a museum. I have always felt that if it's ment to be driven, you should.
