Truck Information:
This 1981 Kenworth – affectionately known as Hank’s Highway Hilton – is a pretty famous truck. It traveled 1,590,406 miles, participated in two European Goodwill Show Truck tours, was featured in well over 200 newspaper and magazine articles, and appeared on numerous television shows and movies. It was owned by Hank Good, who won over 121 trophies for this truck in parades and car shows across the globe. Hank was fascinated with the trucking business ever since he was boy living in New York and seeing them go in and out of town all the time. He used to trick truck drivers into giving him a ride after his paper route just so he could hop in the big rig, but he would always help unload supplies after. He bought this truck on July 23, 1981, and he quickly started adding sets of lights, ornaments, and other decorations. Hank graciously donated it to the Iowa 80 Trucking Museum in November of 2014. The 1981 Kenworth boasts 500 HP, and a wheelbase that measures 170 inches. His first truck show was in May of 1982 at the Englishtown Raceway Truck Show and Drags. His last show was in September of 2001 at Bristol Speedway. Top Speed: 100 MPH
