1978 Kenworth W900 IN INK by Deorse 1978 Kenworth W900 IN INK by Deorse
This is Ed's truck that he drives for his ranch. He drives a 1978 Kenworth W900 conventional tractor. His truck has suffered some front end damage over the 30+ years he's had it. One time Ed went to go park his truck on driveway that had a slight downward slope. He put his truck in park but, for some odd reason the parking break did not engage. His truck rolled down the slope veered off the driveway and managed to hit the only 100-year-old oak tree in sight doing less than 10 miles per hour, that's how the Kenworth got its 'character'. If you can not read the lettering on the bent up front bumper, here's what it says, "ED'S HORSE RESCUE." Ed runs a rescue ranch in Aspen, Colorado for sick/ injured horses, stray horses, and wild horses. He mainly drives to Montana to pick up feral horses that are lost or injured. He makes a pretty decent living from his job, the wild life reserve in Montana pays him well for picking up the horses, he also make his living for selling the horses. More than half of the horses he picks up get sold as family pets or get sold to local zoos. Some horses he releases back into the wild and some are too sick and are put down. All in all he likes his job, he's been in this business for over 50 years and his Kenworth has been serving him well for over 30 years.
You know this truck is the same model of truck that played the goblin truck from Stephen King's 1986 Maximum Overdrive.

Now I plan to upload a colored version of this truck later, this gives YOU the opportunity to download this picture and color it the way you'd want to. If you do take this opportunity be sure to send me the link to your picture, I 'll post it up on the originals for the other deviants to see.

Thank you, yeah I never got around to coloring it so I had ~Natter45 finish it for me, he did petty good job for something done in less than 2 hours. I don't know if I'll ever get around to finish coloring the original.

Well that's good. I can only imagine what his colored version actually would look like if he had really, really, taken his time with it, it probably p'own the original picture.
