Eugene Adams' 1988 Kenworth T800

Eugene Adams bought this 1988 Kenworth T800 Michigan Special brand new and has spent the last 34 years hauling 50-ton loads of asphalt and gravel down Michigan backroads. The rig is powered by a 425-hp Cat with a 13-speed and a Hendrickson spring suspension. Nicknamed "Rolling Thunder," the truck will roll over 1 million miles in August. "Eugene is still the first one on the job and the last one to leave," said Adams' daughter-in-law, Samantha Adams.
