Owners Restore Vintage Kenworth Trucks

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.
The stories of Koenig and several other Kenworth truck owners who collect and restore vintage Kenworths have one common theme: a strong fondness for trucks, particularly Kenworths.

Kenworth's Advantage tractor-trailer is a working concept vehicle engineered to produce optimum aerodynamics. This photo shows three enhancements to the basic vehicle design: wheel covers, trailer side skirts and an advanced drag reduction device called a "boat tail" from ATDynamics. Stacking certain technologies often produces better results, but the total improvement achieved won't necessarily be the sum advertised by the product suppliers.

A Change in Aerodynamics

Most of the low-hanging aerodynamic fruit has already been plucked from the engineering tree. Truck makers and their design teams are now actively exploring options they would have ignored a decade ago. It's all about the cost of fuel.

The big shift to slope-nosed aero trucks began nearly 20 years ago, and since then engineers and designers have been refining the design. Today we see tweaks and twists yielding just the tiniest of gains, yet they are all steps in the right direction. What follows is a pictorial review of some of the changes we've seen in recent years -- some dramatic, some very subtle, but all aimed at killing fewer bugs.
