Publisher Comments:

It seems like everything is being customized these days, but one type of vehicle in particular is making a large impact on the customizing world. Semi trucks have been painted and adorned with every bell and whistle imaginable. These spectacular trucks cruise the interstates and draw huge crowds of fans wherever they roll.

Custom Semi features some of the most spectacular examples of customized semi trucks. The book profiles who drives the trucks and families who are in the trucking business, and showcases entire fleets that are customized. Customized trucks that were completely stripped down and recustomized are also included. Spectacular examples of customizations, such as wood, metal, lights, etching, and interior, are showed in exquisite detail, and what's on the cutting edge of semi truck customization is also featured.

The next time you roll down the highway, keep your eyes open for these masterpieces. The hard work, dedication, and love of the highway are conveyed in these rolling works of art.

Synopsis:

With the success of Bette Garber's Custom Semi Trucks book, this will be another installment of fantastic big rigs. Chapters focus on more spectacularly customized working trucks - Kenworths, Peterbilts, Freightliners, Western Stars, Internationals, Mack, even a GMC, offering ultimate examples of beautiful paint jobs, sleeper units, lighting, and more. Side stories showcase 2- and 3-generation trucking families, plus ""Monster Motifs"" and "Cutting Edge" customization with examples of gorgeous paint, lighting, and custom metal work. A special section is devoted to trucks inspired by Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
