Big Rig custom semi truck shows 2014:
Classic, Vintage, Tricked-Out and extreme 18 Wheelers 

2012 Kenworth W900L Show Truck

Semi truck shows are THE place to see custom big rigs of your dreams! The shiny, sleek and tricked out 18 wheelers you'll see at these trucking events, will make your heart pound!

They’re long, lean, low and way cool! Many shows for big trucks often have a specific focus......some are for old vintage models, a particular make of rig or feature classic semi trucks.

There are also low key events for just for the fun of getting together with other truck owners, to  give their rigs a good old fashioned clean up and ‘spit and polish', and display their rides for others to see.... no competition involved.

The shows and events for trucks, are not just about custom trucks. They are also for educating the public, and giving them a better, more in-depth understanding about the trucking industry.

 And they’re just plain loads of fun too.  Meet other truckers, make new friends,  and get a chance for a little socializing with old friends, too! It doesn't matter if you love Peterbilt trucks, Western Stars, Macks, or if a Kenworth makes you swoon, there's lots of these cool trucks to see.

Below, you'll find just some of the fantastic events held around the country, along with the dates of upcoming shows.

Prepare yourself for lots of cool chrome and horsepower, and lots of gorgeous custom semi trucks.
