Peterbilt Of Council Bluffs Truck Show
A good-sized crowd of families from the trucking industry and the general public admired long rows of shined-up trucks on Saturday, May 5, during the Peterbilt of Council Bluffs Truck Show. Peterbilt Parts Manager Rick Tames estimated the crowd at more than 500 attendees.
A total of 42 heavy-duty work trucks representing several makes were entered in the show & shine competition, while a variety of other machines were on display. The gathering included antique trucks, city fire trucks, National Guard military vehicles and about a dozen antique farm tractors, reported event coordinator Bruce Cash. Other activities included kids games, door prize drawings and vendors on the bright sunny spring day.
The entrants of the truck show also served as judges and when the votes were counted, Buhr Trucking of Adams, Neb. was the big winner. Buhr’s "hot lime-green" 2000 Peterbilt Model 379 bullhauler won four trophies -- Best of Show, Best Paint, Best Interior and People’s Choice awards.
Wiley Anderson of Mead, Neb. took home a First Place trophy in the category Best Truck/Trailer Combo with his blue 2006 Pete Model 379 and shiny livestock trailer.
The truck show was so successful and so many customers had such a good time, the dealership hopes to make it an annual event, Cash said.
