Judging rigs at the TA Walcott Truckers Jamboree
By Paul Abelson
If you’re in any way involved with trucking and have never been to the Truckers Jamboree, I strongly urge you to go. It’s at the TA Walcott in Iowa on July 12-13.
Many truck shows feature customized rigs — those muraled and chromed beauties that compete for trophies and bragging rights. Some are derisively known as “trailer queens,” a term applied to trucks brought to beauty shows inside trailers. These pampered specimens are limited mileage, nonworking trucks with nary a speck of road grime on them.
