March 2018 | Overdrive | 51 CUSTOM RIGS Owner-operator's dream hauler At youtube.com/OverdriveMag, visit the Custom Rigs playlist to see more on the McCormicks' classic W900. Great American Chrome_OVD1114_PG.indd 1 10/13/14 2:12 PM Photos by Todd Dills This classic 1990 Kenworth W900 is owned by Shawsville, Virginia-based owner-operator Dave McCormick. He fell in love with the truck as a teenager when nearby owner-operator Harold Eanes ordered it new, and in 2014, McCormick bought it from Eanes. The truck features a 425-hp Cat with a 13-speed and is mostly original except for the hood. The paint is the factory scheme. Dave and Becky McCormick use their KW to haul cattle out of Virginia to the Carolinas and around their home state. Becky, with a master's degree in library science, handles most of the back- office operations. The truck's interior, like much of the exterior, is still mostly original, with blue button upholstery in the doors and ceil- ing that matches the rig's blue exterior.
