Savonlinna, Finland.. This Kenworth K100C '83

the awesome flame paint job and murral are self
made as the stainless pieces as well. Truck is

Back to galleries home
just wanted to add.. An amazing truck, a great
guy & a great gal,
came across this rig while browsing a trucking
forum.. the aviator picture immediately caught
my eye, i checked out the profile & hit the
link to his website, right away i knew this guy
was on my wave band !
i had pretty much blown my budget for this, all
of a sudden it looked like i was going to Helsinki
guess we could have arranged somebody else to
take the pictures for the calendar but where's
the fun in that ! lol, i rolled into Savonlinna
bus station & rolled out in the Silicone Express
! Jussi and his wife showed me great hospitality,
visiting shows and party's and the photo shoot
of course ! I had an amazing time in Finland &
made friends for life.
massive thank you to Jussi & Juuso for helping
with the calendar sales & all the folks in
Finland who have supported the website
forward to the next project my friend, i'm sure
it will be out of this world ! and hopefully i'll
be back for another shoot !
