More than 80 vehicles entered the Paul K. Young Truck Beauty Championship at the Mid-America Truck Show. Rigs ranged from a beautifully restored and maintained 1949 Kenworth cabover (which is in a LOT better shape than this writer, who shares a birthday with it), to virtually brand-new vehicles entered in low-mileage classes. There were extreme vehicles, such as an homage to all things John Deere, and the chopped-and-lowered look was popular.
