Join Texas Chrome Shop at the Fairplex Pomona Truck Show Latino!

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

The Only Major U.S. Truck Show designed to attract thousands of Hispanic/Latino truckers will take place Oct.17-18th at the Fairplex Pomona. See the Mendez brothers Project 1 Peterbilt in the Texas Chrome Shop booth #333.The truck capturing the most attention at and wining BEST OF SHOW at a recent truck show was the Mendez brother’s radical Project 1 Peterbilt. Raul Jr. and Roland Mendez rolled in their beautiful rig off the trailer with the paint still wet and a few trim pieces still needing to be bolted on before the judging began. See this beautiful truck in the Texas Chrome Shop booth #333.


The Truck Show Latino will again be held in conjunction with the Construction Truck and Equipment Expo sponsored by The California Dump Truck Owners Association. The combined shows are in the heart of the Southwest’s greatest concentration of construction equipment and the largest U.S. Latino trucker population.

We are very excited to combine two events with such great potential. While each show has a different focus, they share multiple facets of equipment and audience/driver involvement, benefiting all attendees. The strong synergies of Latino’s in trucking and construction provide the perfect cross-over for exhibitors.

Once again there will be a Pride & Polish Truck Beauty Contest. Brining dozens of dazzling and decked-out big rigs, the competition for trophies and prizes will draw many admiring Latino truckers and their trucker friends.


Call us at 210-622-5757 or visit our website www.TexasChromeShop.com for more details.

San Antonio truck customizer’s 651st build a wild ride


It began as just a rough color pencil sketch and a short list of specifications/ideas scribbled on a notepad. Two years later San Antonio-based Texas Chrome Shop rolled its tricked-out, multi-hued hot-rod Peterbilt, Project 1, onto the carpet. A dream turned into a rolling work of big-rig art.

But the full-on custom ‘98 Pete 379 sitting proudly on display in Booth 12047 isn’t their first rodeo: Project 1 is actually the 651st build handled by the custom side of Triple R Diesel.

“This is the first custom truck our family has built for ourselves,” said Raul Mendez Jr.

“My brother Roland came up with the idea in 2007. But it wasn’t until February this year that we pulled the truck into our shop and began the transformation. We worked 18-hour days the past three weeks to get it finished for the show.”

The 750hp Caterpillar-powered custom rig was torn down to the bare frame and rebuilt inside and out.

“We should have named it Spare Time,” joked Roland. “It seems we spent every bit of our spare time making this dream come to life.”

“This is our dream truck ­- and probably a dream truck for a lot of others,” said Raul. “The design is radical, and it’s our shop’s way of letting the country know what we can do out of a little shop down in San Antonio, Texas. We bring trucker’s dreams to life.”

Read what Overdrive’s Custom Rigs Magazine had to say about Triple R Diesel’s videos!

Friday, July 10th, 2009


Just rec’d another “build” video from the boyz at Triple R Diesel down in Texas showing yet another custom rig that’s gone through their shop. I tell you, Triple R puts out more build videos than Paramount does movies.  And they are always fun to watch.


    I encourage every custom shop — or individual who is doing their own work — to do the same. Such an endeavor takes a little bit of time to snap the still photos and shoot short video clips of the work-in-progress, and, of course someone on on the video-editing side who enjoys putting together short 4-5 minute movies. But in the end it’s worth it; you get free publicity for both the custom rig being built and your shop.


    If you do have videos of this type, send me either the links or the videos  so we can post them on Custom Rigs’ web site. I’d love to have a huge library of custom rig build videos for everyone to have access to in one location. One can learn a few tips and tricks by watching them!
