Owners Restore Vintage Kenworth Trucks

1931 Kenworth Model N — Dave Schroyer, Celina, Ohio

For Al Koenig, his first look at a Kenworth truck at the age of 8 was love at first sight. “I can remember the first time I saw Kenworth trucks as they passed my parents’ Minnesota farm,” Koenig said.

It's easy to tell from the pictures that drivers put a lot into these fundraisers. But it's more than just raising money. It's a bunch of people that often work in isolation coming together for a cause and showing the underlying sense of community that exists among drivers -- and is rarely seen in public.
