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.

Texas Chrome Shop wins Best of Show at GATS 2009. The truck capturing the most attention at the 11th annual GATS was Texas Chrome Shop’s radical Project 1 Peterbilt. Read what Overdrive Custom Rigs had to say about these years winners.
It wasn’t a surprise for anyone attending the 2009 Great American Trucking Show in Dallas to see a heavy contingency of custom rigs entered in Overdrive’s Pride & Polish truck beauty show. After all, trucking is big in Texas. The surprise was just how good the boys in the Lone Star state are when it comes to customizing their rides. Texas-based Z-Bar Transport, Lindamood Demolition, Bill Hall Jr Trucking, and trucks customized by the Texas Chrome Shop hauled away more than half of the Pride & Polish trophies.
The truck capturing the most attention at the 11th annual GATS was the Mendez brothers 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. The San Antonio, Texas, entry built by the Texas Chrome Shop ended up winning the prestigious Best of Show honors beating out the Chrome Shop Mafia’s Ivy’s Poison, another brand new limited mileage show truck. “We have customized 650 customer’s trucks over the years our little shop has been in business,” says Raul Mendez Jr. “But this is the first truck owned by our family to be customized. Roland came up with the concept two years ago,” explains Raul Jr. ” Steve Cervantes, our in-house artist, sketched his idea out and we let the drawing hang in on our office wall until this last February. We’d just look at the picture and talk about what we wanted and how to get it done.”
Roland says they rolled their ‘98 Peterbilt 379 into the shop in February to start the work.” The last four months we’ve worked night and day getting it done. Everyone in our shop had a role in how it turned out. Everyone took a lot of pride in their job and it shows.”
“Project 1 is the Texas Chrome Shop’s way of letting the country know what we can do down in San Antonio,” adds Raul Jr.” We can turn anyone’s dream [of owning a radical custom show truck] into a reality. The guys we have in our custom and paining shop are some of the best in the world.”
Custom fiberglass door panels, killer sound system, and creative design were just part of the reason the Texas Chrome Shop’s Project 1 caught show judges and show goer’s eyes.

HOT-ROD TEXAS PETE
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.”

CUSTOM BUILD VIDEOS
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!

Thanks to Triple R for a wonderful experience”.

“After researching many companies to make the huge decision regarding where to purchase our next dump truck the choice was clear Triple R Diesel was our best option. We looked at many companies basing our choice on quality, service, experience and customer service. Triple R Diesel was above and beyond our standards. We had the pleasure to meet and interview their technicians, welding team, graphic designers, and sales staff. The end result was one we would gladly endorse and recommend. Our next dump truck purchase will be at Triple R Diesel”. Dave Daniels, Donohoe Construction, LLC.; Phoenix, Arizona
