Sparky's Freightshaker Rocks!
900,000 Miles and Still
Going Strong. When we...
first met Sparky, I shared our vision with him to give him his own
"my space" page on our site to display his 1995 Freightliner COE semi truck. Within a day we received a photo of
this awesome looking semi truck and some information about himself. show off your tricked out Freightliner big rig
semi truck for all the world to see. His comments were so "right on", we send to other customers as an example.
Here are Sparky's own words.
"As a precision driver within the film community I drive just
about everything with wheels. One of my best friends is a Key Grip who purchased a trailer for all his gear. I have
driven for him many years and decided to match the investment with my own truck. Industry trucks are always sharp,
we are in the entertainment business so a "show truck" is a must and chrome a fundamental item.
We will be making many additions to this 95 Freightshaker for the
enjoyment all who work around movie sets. This rig is one monster truck out of the box. Built custom for a team
in 95 they spared nothing on the interior. At 900,000 miles it still drives like a dream smooth, quiet, and
reliable. 450 hp Detroit diesel turbo with a fuller 15 speed. Serviced with care it is one rockin film truck.

Commenting on a recently installed triple train horn, Sparky
acknowledged a small problem. "Where is the freight train those came from"? He goes on, "I met a guy in Utah that
had the same horns, they are so loud they swept all the snow off the parking lot. Great tuned sound." I think maybe
right on the front bumper would say get the f #@*& out of the way.
They do mount under the driver side of the cab in the wheel well all good but all
that chrome, we won't see it. Couple of quick notes, been pushing some of
the other owners to get it together for the
site. Is it cool if I get the photo's and a story to submit?
(Absolutely!). Many of the drivers are not sure how to handle it (maybe shy) I can make a package like the
one I sent.
Just returned from Salt Lake city. Saw so many ideas for truck
lighting, that's what I work with in film, the lighting crews so ideas are flowing. Here is a shot of the 35
footer. They messed up on the color.....looks like the USS Ottman warship (just kidding) and white wheels??? Don't
drive through S.F with that. I made them shoot those out the dark gray like on the tractor. We didn't talk about
colors, I have the graphic design major so its my fault for not directing.
